Combine five star service and accommodations with the African bush and you get this superb experience that is almost impossible to describe. The staff wants to do the right thing and they truly care about the quality of your stay. Very well trained staff...in fact having stayed at some of the world's best hotels...this team in this location stacks right...

PROPERTY’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 17 December 2016 via mobile

Staying here was the best decision we could have made. The staff were so friendly and amazing and we loved our luxurious accommodation. The highlight of course was the safaris and we saw everything that we wanted too - up close! We saw elephants, lions, leopard, cheetahs, zebras, impalas, hyenas, warthogs and wilder beasts. Our ranger, Stacey, was so amazing...

We had the privilege to visit the Sabi Sands and Singita earlier this month (Feb 2017). I have been to the Sabi Sands before and also stayed at numerous other lodges. But I must say that Singita Ebony does live up to its reputation as being one of the top lodges in the area. Our stay was pleasant and accompanied...

We stayed at Sweni and Ebony and the higher level of service at Ebony was notable. The staff really went out of their way to make you feel welcome and attend to your every need. The room was large and well appointed, had a great view and the private pool was just the best. Our first safari was in Kenya...

We stayed here at the weekend having previously visited another Singita property, Lembomo and whilst both lodges are different in style, they both deliver an exceptional customer experience. The rooms were stunning with marvelous views over the river where you can sit on your private stoop and watch elephants and game wander by. We were accompanied on the game drives...

Wesley was our guide and Peter was our tracker, both were unbelievable in kindness, knowledge and safety.

Okay. I have to admit. I love the Singita properties and have never had anything other than a fantastic experience there...Our trip this year to Singita Ebony was perfection. We had not been there since 1997. Normally, we stay at Boulders, which is also spectacular. That being said, Ebony is our new favorite for the Sabi Sand. If you can,...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
As the original Singita lodge, Ebony stands steadfast amongst enormous trees on the banks of the Sand River in the heart of South Africa's 'big cat country.' The lodge takes safari design and style to a new level with a fresh and contemporary interpretation of the classic safari lodge, combining tented camp and bush lodge style. Guests are immersed in nature with huge open spaces and interiors inspired by a combination of local tribal culture and the animal kingdom. ... more   less
