Meet One of the Most Beautiful and Oldest Natural Parks In the WorldSaturday 26 August 2017
The Kruger National Park was founded in 1898 and is one of the oldest natural parks in the world. Creating a magnificent balance between conservation and protection of the wildlife and wilderness, community development and ecotourism, the Singita Kruger National Park is one of the awe-inspiring and luxurious references of the Singita lodges which can accommodate around 42 guests and have 150kms of private road, always keeping a careful eye for the unknown.
The National Park is composed of two lodges, the Singita Lebombo and Sweni which were built taking into consideration the “touch the earth lightly” philosophy. Singita Kruger is situated on 33,000 acres, in the Southeast Africa boarded country, Mozambique. Singita’s concession is an isolated piece of pristine wilderness where a unique and rich wildlife population thrives across four distinct ecological zones. The National Park is renowned for concentrating the Big Five game animals, especially remarkable pride of lions. The 2001 concession helped Kruger maintain and fully protect its treasurable ecosystem.

Singita Sweni Lodge is nestled beautifully amongst hundreds of trees at the edge of the Sweni River. The decks of this tranquil and intimate retreat seem to hover in the branches while the interiors are rich in colour and textures that represent the hues of its natural surroundings. With its proximity to the river, guests at Singita Sweni Lodge are treated to up-close sightings of the incredible number of animals and birds that wander down to drink or wallow in the river.
Comprised of 13 suites and one exciting private villa, the Lebombo Lodge celebrates the ingenious designs and spirit of Africa with a strong influence from nature. Characterised by a bold, contemporary, sculptural and organic structure that combines materials like steel and wood, guests will have picturesque views to the astonishing N’Wanetsi River. The villa features two bedroom suites each customised with a private swimming pool, an open-plan kitchen and its own boma. The lodges boast a roof terrace and wine terrace, an interactive kitchen and an additional 25-metre lap pool. The Lodge offers sophisticated, serene and meditative spaces engrossed by the dramatic landscape of mammoth euphorbia trees.
The collaboration between award-winning Chef’s warehouse in Cape Town, Liam Tomlin and Singita, allowed visitors to experience a fresh and modern dining experience full of global flavours.
Lastly, the Singita Kruger is quite devoting to increasing the economy of the local communities by aiming to support the growth of certain sectors on the outskirts of the park, from helping local schools to supplying essential needs to survive.
