Boulders Lodge, a special place in the Wilderness
Along the Sand River, in the northeast part of South Africa, lies the privately held Sabi Sands Game Reserve. Created by Singita, the Sabi Sands lies just west of the centre of the Kruger National Park, one of the largest parks in the world. Here Singita has erected one of Africa’s finest examples of luxury accommodations in rugged settings, the Boulders Lodge.
The Boulders Lodge offers guests an outstanding view of the Sand River and the surrounding veldt provides a true feeling of wild Africa, especially as the sun sets amidst the baobabs in the distance. The hotel is designed to incorporate the raw materials of the region in its construction, giving your surroundings a rustic feel, while the finest suites of the continent ensure that your stay is entirely restful and pleasurable.
Encountering the Wild
The trees, shrubs and grasslands of the Kruger are called the veldt, and this huge parkland is filled with countless herds of Africa’s most spectacular wildlife. At Boulders Lodge, you will be able to go eye to eye with the incredible wildlife native to the area, perhaps without even leaving your luxurious suite. Every day, the Lodge will offer game drives. Strong and sturdy 4×4 Land Rovers will be ready to head out into the veldt and explore the area, in search of the amazing animals that make Africa such an ecological paradise. Your highly professional guides will be able to escort you along the river in safety, and both predators and prey will be easily found. For more active travelers, Guided Safari Walks are also available when requested.
The Sensation of Ease in the Centre of a Rough Land
The Boulders Lodge features several remarkably sumptuous suites that face the Sand River, while others open out onto a view of an important local watering hole favored by the animals of the region. Two family suites offer heated plunge pools, perfect after a long day of hiking in the bush. When you decide to explore the hotel, you’ll find that there are superb spa services available, along with a fine swimming pool near the center of the complex. A gym is available to all guests, as well.
Bringing Ecology and Community Together
Singita is dedicated to the concept of bringing community and ecology together. A visit to one of the villages of the area can be a great part of your African experience, thanks to the Singita Community Development Trust. This programme, in concept with the READ Educational Trust, sponsors several schools in the area. A trip to the towns of Justicia or Lillydale could be an exciting part of your experience, too.
The Grand Tours of Yesterday, the Science of Today
Boulders Lodge will provide you with a glorious luxury adventure in the heart of the wildest land in Africa. You’ll be able to enjoy spa treatments in-between game drives, or practice archery along the river. The Boulders Boutique and Gallery are open to your inspection, and your hosts will be glad to cater to your wishes. Enjoy the African veldt at the Bouders Lodge.
