Singita Ebony Lodge

    The spectacle of Sabi Sands unfolds almost as impressively from your vantage inside Singita Ebony’s air-conditioned suites. Suites feature large picture windows with views of the savanna, 15-foot-high cathedral ceilings, cool stone floors, oversize mahogany beds, and fireplaces that open onto the bedrooms and sitting areas. Ebony’s twice-daily game drives may entail tracking lions, leopards, and other predators through the five-foot-tall grass of the game reserve. Accommodations Nine private double suites line the river. Each comes with a plunge pool, 15-foot-high cathedral ceiling, and a double-sided fireplace. Recreation Morning and evening game drives and guided tours to the community of Justitia, where guests visit with Shangaan villagers. Dining Served in a room with hunting spears suspended from the ceiling. Ask the chef to pair the springbok fillet with a South African vintage from the 12,000-bottle wine cellar. Worthy Diversion The nearby Drakensberg Escarpment features several dramatic waterfalls. Rates The nightly $1,030-per-person charge includes meals, game drives, and all beverages except for Champagne.
