Singita Sweni Lodge

Accommodation in Kruger National Park


Star Rating:5

Amongst some of Africa’s starkest beauty is a place that resonates to the very depths of the soul. Set in dappled shade on the banks of the Sweni River, six exclusive suites herald a new era in safari. Constructed of glass, slatted wood and bleached branches, Sweni Lodge maintains the modern lines of Lebombo rationalised with classic lines and a time-honoured palette.

Integration with the African outdoors through floor to ceiling windows and a vast balcony creates a sense of accord with the surroundings. Each interior merges elemental curves, juxtaposed textures and unexpected splashes of colour in eclectic harmony.

Enjoy exquisite meals, morning and evening game drives. On return from your morning game drive enjoy either an indulgent massage or beauty treatment at the spa, relaxing under an African sun on your sundeck, a workout at the gym or some superb shopping at the trading store, any number of discoveries await.
