Singita Castleton

Kruger - Sabi Sand Game Reserve

Most safari lodges are either uber contemporary or deliberately retro. Singita Castleton is different. It might be steeped in history, but it feels more like a cross between a camp and a farmhouse than an Out of Africa throwback. 

It’s the former home of Luke Bailes’ grandfather – the founder of Singita. Today, it’s an exclusive-use lodge set within 18,000 hectares of private reserve. With its home-from-home ambience and nearby dam (a magnet for elephants, antelopes and big cats) it’s one of our top recommendations for families.
