At Singita Ebony warm colours of deep red, green and brown invites visitors indoors and creates an unmistakably cosy and African atmosphere. The eclectic combination of colours, textures and fabrics evoke a colonial feel, but all modern luxury amenities are available too. There are twelve thatched suites of which two can convert to family suits, all boasting outside showers, heated private pools, a fireplace and lounge – not to mention their own private game viewing decks. The main viewing deck at Singita Ebony overlooks the Sand River, and visitors often spot elephant and antelope from this vantage point.
Meals can be enjoyed on the timber deck that offers indoor and outdoor dining – lanterns cover trees outside next to the main pool and it creates a stunning and magical effect. The wine cellar is well stocked so wine-lovers should make the most of the excellent vintages on offer. There are activities aplenty available at Singita Ebony, whether visitors feel like being adventurous or indulgent. Guided safari walks and game drives provide the opportunity to spot the Big 5 and other wild animals in their natural habitat in the company of professionally trained trackers and rangers. For something different, visitors can go mountain biking or try their hand at archery.
Visitors to Singita Ebony who are after more sedate recreation can spend a morning in the library or wine boutique. While those wanting to experience a sense of the real Africa can visit a neighbouring village with a community tour. Alternatively, an afternoon can be spent at the gymnasium, followed by a massage and treatment at the spa.
Singita Ebony epitomizes the warm heart of Africa, not only in its cosy decor, but excellent safari activities, spectacular setting and quality cuisine.
