Singita, meaning place of miracles, is a heafty promise and certainly an audacious goal to set as a promise to those fortunate enough to experience it - an how our trip delivered on the promise, in fact over delivered. Having visited Singita 2 years ago with 2 other families, going again I was sure that our previous experience could not...

We recently stayed at Singita Castleton as part of my parents' 50th anniversary celebration. There were nine of us with ages ranging from 10 to 70. Everything was perfect. The grounds are absolutely amazing- right in the middle of the game preserve. It was not unusual to watch elephants, hippos, waterbuck, and impalas while sitting at the pool or eating...

We were five couples and so were delighted to get a Singita property to ourselves on a waterhole. We were all excited to stay two nights and make it memorable as we were celebrating my birthday. I must admit the only thing good was the great local group they called for that evening and the setting on a full moon...

We just got back from a 4 night stay at Singita Castleton and it was truly extraordinary in every way, from the game viewing to the accommodating service to the food to the rooms themselves. In every important respect, Castleton was one of the best stays we've ever had, anywhere. Every member of the staff was constantly looking out for...

Singita Castleton was honestly the most amazing establishment I've ever visited...and not only because I was there with family and friends for our wedding. This was the perfect venue for our small wedding but I can see how it would be equally as spectacular a setting for a bunch of friends, a family reunion, or any small group celebration (including...

An unparalleled experience in the bush! I still dream of the place!! Ask and ye shall receive!! Flying in directly to the lodge air strip also makes a great difference. We were there with a group of friends and had the whole lodge to ourselves...that is the only way you get to stay here. The chef is outstanding, the quality...

Singita Castleton is an unbelievable venue. We celebrated my husband's 50th with close friends. It couldn't have been better. Superb accommodation, delicious meals, staff for whom nothing is too much trouble and game viewing that brings tears to your eyes it is so special.

I have travelled the world, stayed in Castles, bespoke tented camps and the Mandarin Oriental in Hong Kong, they are all brilliant in their own right but Singita Castleton is a significant step change and cut above - why you may ask?

Our family went to Singita Castleton to celebrate a 60th birthday. It was the most perfect weekend imaginable. Yes, we saw the big 5 (all within five km of the camp!) and yes the lodge was beautiful - but what makes this place special is actually difficult to put in to words. The ranger, Claude, was really in a league...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Formerly the family home of Singita founder Luke Bailes’ grandfather, Singita Castleton is an exclusive use lodge. Set within 45,000 acres of private reserve, Singita Castleton consists of a main house with communal living spaces, and accommodation located in six individual cottages within the grounds, catering for up to 12 people. It is steeped in history, capturing the spirit of the original Castleton house, giving the lodge a historical and comforting nature. Singita Castleton has been designed to combine the best elements of a private safari lodge with the rustic charms of a country farmhouse, with the added benefit of extensive high-end facilities, including a vast garden, swimming pool, wine cellar, gym, tennis court and spa treatment room. Guests can relax together in the courtyard, gather around the traditional ‘boma’ or meet in the country-style kitchen, yet the individual cottages allow guests to retreat to the privacy of their own space as and when it’s needed. All of this is overlooking a waterhole where animals regularly gather to drink. ... more   less
