Singita Boulders' suites feature magnificent stone bathrooms and bedrooms that encapsulate in luxury. Quiet, simple and luxurious, moments spent on the vast sundecks at Boulders Lodge will leave you at the mercy of the breathtaking wild distance. South Africa, a country of diverse cultures and cosmopolitan influences, inspires the unique culinary experience at Ebony and Boulders Lodges. Juxtaposing global cuisine with traditional African ingredients, Singita's style combines simplicity with an abundance of flavour. Excellent produce, well prepared and presented, is accompanied by truly inspirational surroundings. Complementing the exceptional cuisine, each Singita lodge has a unique and comprehensive wine cellar. Singita's wine program consists of approximately 35,000 bottles of the finest South African wines. Newly released red wines are matured in our temperature-controlled Cape Town cellar for up to 5 years, to ensure that they reach full potential. The Sabi Sands gets its name the perennial Sand River that bisects the reserve and the fine, sandy substrate found throughout. Globally renowned for its diversity and concentration of big game, the Sabi Sands features broad, open savannah interspersed with acacia thornveld, rocky outcrops and riverine forest. Herds of buffalo and elephant, large prides of lion, majestic leopard and antelope by the thousands make the 18 500 hectare Singita Private Game Reserve, at the heart of the Sabi Sands, one of the finest locations for viewing the Big Five anywhere in the world.

Wilderness Air flight Livingstone – Kasane
Wilderness Air shared charter flight Kasane Airport – King’s Pool
King's Pool Camp is located in The Linyanti Wildlife Reserve in the northern part of Botswana, on the western boundary of Chobe National Park. The source of the Savuti Channel is within this private reserve. The camp overlooks the oxbow-shaped Kings Pool Lagoon and the Linyanti River to the north. The Linyanti area has a large wildlife resource with a wide variety of species, but it is most noted for its very large Elephant population, which can reach enormous densities during our winter months. There are good populations of Impala, Lechwe, Kudu, Zebra, Giraffe, Sable, Waterbuck, Buffalo and the smaller plains antelope. The major predators such as Lion, Leopard, Cheetah, Wild Dog and Hyena are regularly sighted. Accommodation is in nine luxurious twin-bedded tented rooms under cool thatch, overlooking the hippo filled lagoon in front of the camp. Each of the suites has its own large bedroom area, lounge, private plunge pool and a sala. Each en-suite bathroom has double showers, two hand basins and a separate flush toilet. There is an outdoor shower for those who prefer to shower under the stars. The main lounge, pub and dining room are under thatch, there is a swimming pool built into the deck, and an open air boma for dining under the stars. The main area is linked to the bedrooms by a raised walkway to allow animals to wander freely around the camp. Activities include game drives in open 4x4 vehicles, night drives, and occasionally guided walks when the camp manager feels that it is safe to conduct walking safaris. One of the highlights of Kings Pool is its two hides. At the western end of the camp is a thatched hide overlooking the Kings Pool Lagoon. Guests can enjoy productive siesta hours watching the animals coming down to drink at the lagoon in front of camp. A real highlight is the underground hide located a kilometer or two inland from the camp, when guests sit in the hide, their eyelevel reaches just above the water level. It’s not unusual to have elephant’s feet and trunks almost within touching distance, while guests are safely inside the hide.
Wilderness Air shared charter flight King’s Pool – Mombo Airstrip
Mombo Camp is situated on Mombo Island, adjoining the northern tip of Chief's Island, and is within the Moremi Game Reserve in the Okavango Delta in northern Botswana. The island is surrounded by open floodplains and the camp itself is largely built in and around the shade of some large mangosteen, ebony and fig trees - overlooking a wonderful floodplain teeming with game. The camp has nine luxuriously furnished tents, raised off the ground. The guests' rooms and connecting walkways are up to two meters off the ground, allowing game to wander freely through the camp - but at the same time allowing for guest safety. One often finds that animals take refuge under the rooms. The canvas rooms are spacious and well appointed and have en-suite facilities with an additional outdoor shower for those who enjoy a shower under the stars. The dining room, pub and living area overlook the open plain in front of the camp and there is a plunge pool for relaxing in the heat of the day. Activities at Mombo include morning and afternoon game drives in open 4x4 vehicles. The camp offers abundant big game viewing, arguably the best in Botswana. The highlight is the concentration of plains game and all the predators - including the big cats. Lion sightings are particularly good. Guests could also see Leopard, large herds of Buffalo, Cheetah, Wild Dog, Elephant, White and Black Rhino, Hyena, Giraffe, Wildebeest and Zebra. Access into this area is only by aircraft.
