Discover the incredible Singita Boulders Lodge on the banks of the Sand River, built into the rocky hillside to blend in with the natural environment. Watch the Big Five move between the Kruger and Sabi Sands Game Reserve on 4×4 safari trips through this 18 000 ha wilderness. An oasis in the bush where rustic furnishings have been created from fossilised tree stumps and where slabs of solid stone, wrought iron and leather are balanced with the soft, sensuality of sheepskin rugs and natural flax bed linen.
Singita Boulders Lodge is found on the boulder-strewn banks of the Sand River within the Sabi Sand Reserve.

Each suite has an ensuite bedroom, private sitting room and game viewing deck with private plunge pool overlooking the untouched wilderness. Rustic, handmade furnishings made from fossilised tree stumps, slabs of solid stone, wrought iron and leather are balanced with the soft, sensual feeling of sheepskin rugs and natural flax bed linen. Lodge facilities include a spa, a gym, a swimming pool and The Singita Boutique & Gallery and Premier Wine Boutique.
Boulders Lodge has a contemporary air of tranquillity that honours Africa in an authentic way. Inspiring the name Boulders was an enormous boulder that sat right in the middle of the place where the wine cellar was to be built. A simple decision was made to build the cellar around the boulder!
Guests can enjoy wrap-around views from most parts of the natural stone lodge, and the lookout deck offers the perfect spot from which to observe wildlife drawn to the Sand River. The quiet pond alongside the thatched lounge area allows the light and the landscape inside to the wide open spaces, where straw baskets, neutral shades and textured fabrics complement wooden furniture.
Singita Boulders Lodge offers twelve suites, all with their own en suite bathroom and shower, outside shower, private heated swimming pool, double-sided fireplace, mini bar and fridge, room mini safe, air-conditioning, overhead fans, private lounge, direct dial telephones and game-viewing deck.
