Kruger National Park
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.
