Features
Great views, All-inclusive

After a thorough renovation, the 23-year-old flagship of the Singita brand is now setting the bar even higher for luxury in the bush. In each of the 12 suites, new glass walls dividing the bedroom and the veranda allow natural light to flood in. (You don’t even have to get out of your mahogany four-poster to see elephants splashing in the Sand River below.) Design team Cécile & Boyd set aside the traditional dark wood aesthetic in favor of a more contemporary look: think antique campaign furniture mixed with sepia photography and animal-print fabrics (in a nod to conservation, there are no more animal skins). Dining and sitting areas were moved closer to the river to provide even more dramatic views. What has thankfully stayed the same is the professional staff, as adept at keeping children in fits of giggles as guiding couples through a tasting of South African wines in the property’s incredible cellar.
