Singita Sweni

From: $2,100.00

Singita Sweni is the smallest and most initiate of the Singita lodges. Perched on the banks of the Sweni River the suites are luxurious with lots of glass and vibrant colors. A private deck, day bed, air con and other amenities mean you will want for nothing.


Singita Sweni

Singita Sweni is one of twelve lodges that Singita operates and Sweni lies on the banks of the Sweni River. Designed to reflect the natural dens and lairs found in the area this is one of the smallest lodges and we loved it’s intimacy. The lodge is elevated on timber with lots of glass so you really feel the bush when inside your room.


The accommodation at Singita Sweni consists of six Standard Suites and one Pool Suite. All the structures are raised off the ground to reduce the impact on the environment. Suites have been constructed with wood and glass in order to allow as much light in as possible.

Standard Suites feature twin beds or a large double bed with bedside tables and lighting. A small desk and chair for writing postcards with a separate lounge area. We loved the vibrancy of the decor as well as the space in each suite. Rooms are air conditioned with overhead fans, tea and coffee and a mini bar.

The en suite bathrooms have twin vanity basins, shower and a free standing bath. There is also an outside shower which is a magical experience. Twin sliding doors lead you out onto a private deck which has a day bed and deck chairs. This is a great location for an afternoon siesta. The Pool Suite has its own private plunge pool and can be linked to the suite next door for families.


Morning and afternoon game drives occur daily and walking safaris with your guide and armed ranger are very exciting. There is a dedicated children’s program.
