Singita Sweni Lodge safaris


Sweni Lodge was influenced by the structures of dens, warrens and lairs found in the area. Flanking the Sweni River, this tranquil sanctuary is elevated on stilts with decks of timber.
Even when you're indoors, you'll have the sensation of being close to the river and trees.

The six secluded suites, with tactile furnishings, have been carefully created to bring in the textures and shades of the bush.

Designed with open-plan living in mind, your suite flows from the bathroom area, through to the lounge and into the bedroom – yet if you wish, each area may be sealed off by curtains.

Try the outdoor shower overlooking the river or – for a magical experience – 'camp out' under the stars on the day bed out on your viewing deck.

Sweni can accommodate 12 guests in six suites.

The luxury air-conditioned suites have floor-to-ceiling glass walls, luxurious bathrooms, indoor and outdoor showers, an expansive living area, mini bar and fridge, room safe and private wooden leisure decks with a day bed. All the suites have direct dial telephones.

The main lodge boasts lounge and timber deck dining areas with views of the bush and Sweni river, a bar area, a lounge area (complete with fireplace), a swimming pool and a wine cellar.

Tariffs include all-suite accommodation, three meals per day, all drinks, including premium wines, spirits and liqueurs (excluding champagnes) and open Land Rover safaris accompanied by experienced guides and trackers. With the exception of Singita Sabora Tented Camp and Singita Lebombo Lodge, children of all ages are welcome at our lodges and bookings are subject to availability.

In the interest of safety, participation of children in any game activities (drives/walks/bike rides) is at the discretion of their guide.

Expressing a distinctly African style, Sweni is a combination of dark wood, infused by the Colours of the earth… including deep greens and multi-shades of avocado.
This lodge boasts six luxurious suites that offer the ultimate luxury in a wild setting that offers time for reflection in the shade of its many trees.

The essence of Sweni is elaborate simplicity, dictated to by the Singita philosophy of ‘touching the earth lightly’ – therefore every effort is made to preserve and celebrate this beautiful environment.
The days and nights here are shared with the animals, the sounds and smells of the African bush.

The Kruger National Park is one of the most famous game reserves in the world, renowned for its abundant wildlife and incredible diversity of landscape. Singita boasts two magnificent properties in an exclusive concession of the Kruger, namely Singita Lebombo Lodge and Singita Sweni Lodge.

Located in the Kruger National Park’s southeast region, on the border with Mozambique, the Lebombo concession is one of the most pristine wild territories in Africa.
The majestic Lebombo mountain range runs diagonally across the expanse of the concession, intertwined with the N’wanetsi and Sweni Rivers.

The area is renowned for the big five, abundant antelope and birdlife and an incredible diversity of smaller animals. Rangers attest to the fact that this region boasts a greater density of wildlife than anywhere else on the continent. In terms of scenic beauty and diversity, the Lebombo region is no doubt one of the most exceptional regions of the Kruger National Park.

Items to remember to bring for your Safari Since we want your safari experience to be perfect and completely comfortable, we recommend a few items that we believe you should remember to bring along

From October to April, bring casual summer clothes.
A warm jersey/sweater would be useful for the cooler morning and evening temperatures.
From May to September, bring casual light clothing,but remember to bring a very warm, insulated or paddedparka/jacket for the very cold mornings and nights – a scarf and gloves are very useful too.Cotton clothing in neutral colours is recommended for game drives and compulsory for walks.

Keep whites to a minimum,as white attracts certain bugs at night.
Comfortable walking shoes, track shoes or boots for the bushwalks makes life so much easier. Sandals to wear around at meals and within the lodge area. Shorts for the walks and the warm midday periods. Swimming costumes.Sun block/sun hat/sunglasses/lip balm.Extra pair of correction glasses (if you wear them). Contact lens solution and an extra set of contact lenses(if required).

Cameras, binoculars and your favourite film. We do sell all types of film at the lodge so if you run out, it’s not serious.Video camera and a spare battery. (Batteries can be recharged in your suite. Electricity voltage is 220v – Converters and spare video cassettes are available on request.)We hope that this little checklist will help with your packing.As this is a time for you to get away and escape your worries of the world, formal attire is not required.
