Singita Sweni LodgeSouth Africa
Tucked into the banks of the Sweni River in a private concession of South Africa’s Kruger National Park, Sweni Lodge offers exceptional viewing opportunities from the comfort of the glass walled suites and private suspended viewing decks amongst the trees. Each suite has a contemporary chic design with recycled materials and splashes of vibrant colour inspired by wildlife of South Africa.
Ideal for getting as close to nature as possible the close proximity of the suites to the riverside offers some breathtaking opportunities to view the animals as they visit the riverbanks for a drink. The outdoor daybeds offer the chance to sleep under the night sky to the sound of the wilderness for an extra special safari experience.
With their dedication to protecting and preserving the natural environment, community empowerment programmes and everything you need included in your stay there’s nothing to worry about other than having a meaningful and life changing experience. Spend your days on game drives or walking safaris*, take a spot-lit evening safari with professional guides and trackers revealing the elusive magic of the nocturnal wildlife and visit the Singita Community Culinary School to see for yourself the impact of Singita’s community empowerment projects whilst learning to cook traditional dishes with the chefs before spending the evenings stargazing under the clear night sky.
