Tucked into the banks of the Sweni River, this intimate lodge is a hidden jewel that provides a bold, new African context for contemporary design. Due its proximity to the river, guests at Singita Sweni Lodge are treated to up-close sightings of the incredible number of animals and birds that wander down to drink or wallow in the river. Modern designs offer guests the comforts of an upscale hotel set within a sprawling private concession in the heart of the African bush. Living spaces are conducive to open-air living with floor-to-ceiling glass walls, timber decks for private dining, and a magical outdoor shower and star bed for intimate ‘camp-outs’.
Designed with open-plan living in mind, your suite flows from the bathroom area, through to the lounge and into the bedroom; yet should you wish, each area may be sealed off by curtains. Suites include floor-to-ceiling glass walls, luxurious bathrooms, indoor and outdoor showers that overlook the river, an expansive living area, minibar and a private leisure deck with a day bed that can be used to “camp out” under the stars.
The main lodge boasts lounge and timber deck dining areas with views of the bush and Sweni river, a bar area, a lounge area (complete with fireplace), a swimming pool and a wine cellar. Premium wines, spirits and liqueurs (excluding champagnes) are included in your package.
Daily game drives with professional guides and trackers in range rovers. Guided safari walks on request. Mountain biking and archery available. The Singita Shop stocks a range of African artifacts and curios. A spa complete with a fully-equipped gym is on-site. A swimming pool at the main lodge. Internet, satellite TV and fax facilities is available throughout the property.
