68. Singita Sabi Sand, Kruger National Park, South Africa
Ranked #68 in our countdown of the 100 Best Hotels and Resorts in the World.
Sabi Sand Game Reserve, on the edge of Kruger National Park, protects some of South Africa’s most pristine land.
On the banks of the Sand River, Boulders Lodge interprets the landscape’s raw beauty with organic forms, natural interiors, earthy tones, tribal artefacts and traditional textiles.
Guest suites have private decks and plunge pools. Nearby Ebony Lodge is evocative European colonial-meets-Africa, equally as luxurious.
Dining is five-star at both lodges and Singita is renowned for its stellar cellar. The area is game-rich – you are likely to see the ‘Big Five’, but birdlife is amazing and so too is the stargazing.
Size Two lodges with 12 suites each
Did you know Until 1994, this part of Sabi Sand was completely inaccessible to the public.
