LOCATION

Singita Castleton is a private lodge for up to 12 people located in the heart of the Sabi Sand Nature Reserve.

Close to the Mozambique border, this luxurious and comfortable lodge is for discerning travelers who will have the privilege of enjoying tailor-made services delivered by 5 staff.

Nestled in nature, Singita Castleton offers a unique safari experience, closer to the wild animals.

Four daily flights are offered, including two flights from Johannesburg (50 minutes flight) and two flights from Nelspruit (20 minutes flight). Free private shuttles are organized between the local airfield and Singita Castleton. The trip only takes 5 minutes! It is also possible to reach the lodge by car (count 5 hours from Johannesburg and 2 hours from Nelspruit, get ready to discover great landscapes).

 

DESCRIPTION

Anchored in a private estate of more than 45,000 acres, this exceptional lodge was once the home of the grandfather of the founder of the Singita Game Reserve, Luke Bailes. The original spirit of the house still floats in the air and gives the place a historic and comforting appearance.

The lodge consists of a main building with traditional cuisine, a dining room and a lounge to relax, 6 luxury chalets for up to 12 people, a spacious garden, a pool, wine cellar, spa, tennis court and an ultra-equipped gym.

The property is located near a beautiful waterhole where elephants and zebras come to drink during the day.

The main house offers the opportunity for family members to meet up, while the private chalets allow for some privacy. Note that among the 6 chalets, 2 have been specially designed with connecting doors so that young children are closer to their parents.

The place is ideal for families with children or teenagers, but also for groups of friends, because everyone wants to keep their own comfort zone.

The renting price also includes safaris, meals, laundry service and transfers from the airport.

 

GASTRONOMY

The kitchen is truly the centerpiece of the house and guests are encouraged to join the cook as he prepares his delicious meals.

A cooking lesson, informal and spontaneous, can be proposed by the Chef, at the request of the hosts. The chef tries every day to adapt to the individual preferences of its guests and offers upscale and creative dishes.

During your stay, let yourself be tempted by new culinary experiences: a private dinner, breakfast and dinner in the bush, gourmet menu with wine selection or typical African dinner.

FOR THE children

A safari is the guarantee of bringing back unforgettable memories in your suitcase. This kind of trip fires the imagination and opens the eyes of a child to the beauty of the world. That’s why children of all ages are welcome at Singita Caslteton.

Special activities for families and children include classic board games, wildlife DVDs, coloring books, cooking and baking classes, visiting surrounding schools, bow, trampoline, fishing, swimming and nature exploration. Not to mention hiking and mountain biking for children 16 and over who will probably want to spend more time with more physical activities.

In addition, a special program of “Mini-Ranger” offers to teach your children the techniques of real rangers: tracking animals, capture and release of butterflies, cosmic safari (astronomy), survival techniques in the bush, tracking and quiz on nature. At the end of the course, graduates are awarded a certificate attesting to their new knowledge. Your children will probably be very proud to show it to their friends!

Mini Pedicure and a Mini Manicure are offered on the spa menu for children under 12 years old. Similarly, a 30-minute massage was specifically developed for children.

 

family EXPERIENCES

Guests of Singita Castleton have at their disposal a private field guide / tracker and a Land Rover for the duration of their stay. During the day, safaris can approach the animals, while once night falls, the night walks reveal unsuspected facets of Africa.

During your stay you can observe a wide variety of wildlife such as leopard, lion, rhinoceros, large herds of buffaloes, elephants, hyenas, hippos and cheetahs.

The lodge provides direct access to Kruger National Park, one of Africa’s largest conservation areas.

All travelers returning from Africa will tell you: the African sky is wonderful, after dark. You will be able to spend unforgettable moments while contemplating the deep black sky, illuminated by the stars.

A very rewarding experience to be envisaged is the sponsorship of boxes containing educational material made available to the surrounding schools. The project is called Growing to Read. It aims to support and develop education in the region. During your stay, you can buy a crate at the shop near the lodge and have it delivered to the school of your choice. Once they have received your checkout, schoolchildren will send you a nice souvenir photo to thank you! A box costs only 35€ and helps a class of 35 children. An original initiative and solidarity.

In the same vein, visits to the neighboring villages of Justicia and Lillydale are organized by Zamani Tours, a body advised by Singita. These two villages border the Sabi Sands Reserve. A unique opportunity to better understand the daily life of local people and Tsonga culture. You will have the opportunity to interact and discuss freely with local people.

 

FOR THE PARENTS

The Singita Caslteton offers wine lovers the opportunity to taste great wines from the private cellar of Singita, one of the best wineries in Africa.

The hotel’s spa invites you to relax. In this haven of peace, the organic cosmetics and eco-friendly Terres d’Afrique are used by experienced practitioners who listen to your body. We recommend that you try the 120-minute massage, which includes a scrub, a massage and a full-body mask.

Please note meals are included in the rates but the spa, champagne and all other extras are extra.
