WATCH: Singita Lebombo Lodge among top 5 most spectacular hotels in the World for 2020
Lebombo Lodge, located in the pristine Kruger National Park was designed by the famous designers Cecile & Boyd. Designed in collaboration with GAPP Architects, Lebombo reflects the spectacular landscape from which it draws its inspiration.
Overlooking N’wanetsi River, travellers are transported into a bushveld world of dramatic landscapes home to high concentrations of iconic wildlife.Often referred to as “Lebombo: Land of Lions” after the Lebombo mountain ridge, it is one of the best places to see lions roam in their natural habitat.
Surrounded by Singita’s 33 000-acre private concession in the Park, the lodge boasts communal areas that extend seamlessly into rocky outcrops dotted with giant euphorbia trees.
Features include a roof terrace, multimedia room, library, interactive kitchen, espresso bar and an all-day ‘bar-deli’. Besides the many Big 5 sightings, Lebombo prides itself in a modern and contemporary design.
Matador Network said on its site: “While many luxury safari camps in Africa can lean too hard on the nostalgic (or borderline cringey in their myopic celebration of colonial Africa), Lebombo is refreshingly modern with contemporary, natural-light-filled rooms and airy sculptural touches that celebrate the surrounding wildlife.”
According to a press statement by the lodge, the bold contemporary style is inspired by the rockface into which it is built, the untamed terrain that surrounds the lodge and the thousand stars that twinkle at night.
“The interior design sweeps guests into a hideaway of luxury, style and comfort, yet also connects them to nature in this 33,000-acre private concession on the eastern edge of the Kruger,” it revealed.
