Singita Private Game Reserve

Singita Private Game Reserve, also called Singita Sabi Sand, is a privately-owned game reserve within the greater Sabi Sand Reserve and adjacent to Kruger National Park. This area makes up some of South Africa’s most incredible and pristine land. Spanning more than 45,000 acres, Singita Sabi Sand is renowned for high concentrations of big game and frequent leopard sightings.

Singita Sabi Sand has been owned by the Bailes family who have acted as the dedicated custodians of this precious part of South Africa’s natural heritage since 1926. With the opening of their first lodge in 1994, Singita’s philosophy has been to protect large tracts of wilderness and wildlife populations for future generations. Prior to 1994, this part of the Sabi Sand had been completely inaccessible with the exception of Singita’s environmental team and the owner’s family. Since then, guests have shared the privilege of experiencing this carefully protected part of South Africa.

Singita, meaning “Place of Miracles” in Shangaan, is considered by many as the ultimate in safari travel. They have been awarded consistently year after year with many international awards as some of the best hotel accommodations in the world. Breathtaking scenery, rich biodiversity, amazing wildlife encounters with top notch service, lodging and cuisine make Singita the ultimate safari destination.
