Singita Boulders Lodge

22° 45' 1.06" S 31° 9' 11.33" E

Located on Singita’s private Sabi Sands Reserve (18,000 hectares), close to Singita Ebony, and overlooking the Sand river, Singita Boulders is an excellent luxury lodge.

More contemporary than Ebony, Boulders is a stone, thatch and wood build of exceptional quality. Approached by means of a pretty bridge, the English countryside feel of the lodge's pond entrance gives way to the Gaudiesque minimalism of the shared areas, which include a bar, lounge, dining area, library, boma, pool, curio shop and library. Open faced brick columns support a huge whitewashed stone feature, through which the thatched ceiling can be glimpsed, and elegant white chairs combine well with abstract bleached wood sculptures. There is an emphasis here on natural materials, and on size, the overall effect being clean, biomorphic, organic. The food is excellent, as is the service.

There are 12 suites at Singita Boulders. Each faces out over the Sand River. The design of the rooms is open-plan, with a reading area, bedroom and bathroom running into each other. Leading out of the large glass fronted sliding doors, there is a large deck and outdoor shower area. The rooms are exceptionally comfortable, a great mix between the traditional feel of Ebony and the cutting edge design of one of Singita's other properties, Lebombo.

The wildlife in the Sabi Sands area is world class, and activities at Singita Boulders include game drives, guided walks, mountain biking, archery and sundowners.

Ethical Information

Sustainability
Singita is committed to making a sustainable difference to local communities and to protecting the environment and wildlife. To date, a number of successful projects have come to fruition, including the building of schools, micro-financing of small businesses, supporting agricultural initiatives as well as training people in the conservation and hospitality sectors. Many of our guests express an interest in contributing towards such initiatives and we gratefully facilitate this.

Community
Singita has a strong bond with our local communities. Many of our staff live locally and are transported to and from their homes on a daily basis, and most of our staff are ex-pupils of the local schools which we support. We have therefore pledged to undertake projects that empower the local people, using resources at our disposal. This includes providing funds, access to the reserves, expertise and getting involved in social outreach projects. We also deliberately manage our lodges in a way that maximises the benefits to local communities so that they can experience the positive effects of eco-tourism.

Conservation
At each of our lodges we have dedicated teams whose sole focus is to preserve the land and to protect and increase the wildlife to match its natural carrying capacity. This includes environmental care and anti-poaching units.
Our Guiding teams are selected on the basis of their passion and knowledge of the bush and then deliberately up-skilled by our Head of Guide Training and Development to ensure our guests have rich, educational and enjoyable experiences during their time with us.

COMMUNITY SUPPORT
Singita Kruger National Park has adopted an approach that is dedicated to stimulating the local economy on the outskirts of the park. Monthly spend on local suppliers and contractors has double over the past two years. Daily transport services for staff are sourced locally, as are services such as waste removal, linen repair beverage supplies and arts and crafts to supplement lodge décor and for special gifts. The Singita Business Linkages Committee oversees this process and ensures that the work that is done is conducted in co-operation with the efforts of the Kruger National Park Community Development Division.

Singita School of Cooking
The school is located on site at the staff village that serves Lebombo and Sweni. It was established with the aim of encouraging the development of culinary skills amongst local
youth. Each year, eight to ten students are selected – based upon clear criteria including a real interest in cooking to participate in a 1-year development programme.

General Community Support
The lodges are involved in supporting schools in the local communities in various ways; providing practical and educational support to pre-schools and assisting communities with access to fresh water. Support for the pre-schools ranges from assisting with maintenance challenges; to the planting of indigenous trees in the school grounds; to the much larger challenge of assisting with the improvement of the quality of education provided.
