Stories Of The Kruger | Singita Lebombo Lodge Private Camp
The Singita Lebombo Lodge is at the cutting edge of bushveld design and architecture. It is situated in the 13 500-hectare Singita concession close to the Sweni and N’Wanetsi river systems, which means the area, abounds with wildlife. It is particularly well known for large prides of Lions.
The concession is situated in the southeastern part of the Kruger, and is close to the border of Mozambique. The closest main rest camp to the Singita Lodges is Satara.
Singita Lebombo is situated close to its sister Camp, the Singita Sweni Lodge.

General Information On Singita Lebombo Lodge
The Lebombo lodge, situated on Singita’s private concession in the Kruger National Park, is home to 15 loft-style suites.
The design of these light-filled structures, floating between river and sky, was inspired by the many eagles’ nests built into the cliff face of the riverbank. Sophisticated and contemporary, the glass-walled suites are romantic hideaways leading outdoors onto elevated wooden viewing decks where guests may sleep out with nothing more than mosquito netting between them and the stars. Throughout the lodge, the imaginative use of glass, wood, steel, and layered fabrics in muted shades invites the surrounding landscape indoors.
