Throughout the past three decades, Singita has won numerous awards for its unique guest experience, but in a year marked by such vast challenges as the ones presented by 2020, it’s even more humbling and rewarding to receive widespread recognition across all our regions.

 

Sabi Sand Game Reserve, South Africa (07 November 2020) – 27 years ago, Singita flew in the face of convention, completely rewriting the script for luxury safaris in Africa. Pioneering an ecotourism model that remains to this day, we have combined an unrivalled guest experience with amazing wildlife encounters – anchored in intuitive service, the utmost comfort and authenticity.

Singita, the Shangaan word for ‘Place of Miracles’, is a conservation and ecotourism brand that has been preserving African wilderness for almost 30 years, offering guests an exceptional safari experience with 15 luxury, award-winning lodges and camps across four countries in Africa. In partnership with non-profit funds and trusts who implement strategic conservation projects in each region, Singita is preserving and protecting pristine land and wildlife populations, and helping to create economic independence within local communities surrounding the reserves.

Built on family-owned land in what is now known as the Sabi Sand Game Reserve, Singita’s mission is to share a unique part of the world while maintaining respect for the natural environment and challenging accepted notions of luxury.

“Throughout the past three decades, Singita has won numerous awards for its unique guest experience, but in a year marked by such vast challenges as the ones presented by 2020, it’s even more humbling and rewarding to receive widespread recognition across all our regions.”

Within just ten months of this year, Singita was honoured with 14 global travel awards.

Singita Kruger National Park was named the No. 1 Lodge in Africa by Travel + Leisure readers. Singita Sasakwa Lodge was voted No.1 in Africa, as well as three of our lodges, rank in the Top 20 Resorts in the World in the Condé Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Awards 2020.

“Awards like these highlight that astute travellers value unfiltered space and time and the freedom to reconnect with the things that matter most – themselves, each other and nature. 

The accolades are also a testimony to the restorative powers of Singita’s remote locations – where the senses are awakened and the soul is restored.”

The lodge recently also went viral globally after a leopard was spotted casually walking through the guest area while hunting a bushbuck. You can get the full story by clicking here.
