Reminiscent of an African farmhouse, Singita Castleton, situated in the Sabi Sand, presents relaxed and understated interiors imbued with nostalgic references that capture the spirit and history of the original camp. Tartans, ticking stripes and faded botanical-print fabrics complement leather, wood and wicker furniture, lending a rustic but chic simplicity to the lodge. Many of the antiques and original furnishings have been recycled or re-fashioned, adding authenticity to comforting living spaces that extend outdoors onto deep, furnished verandas overlooking tree-shaded lawns and a swimming pool. Beyond this restful view is a watering hole where animals gather to drink.

An intimate lodge, Castleton is designed for private use with its own staff, guide and tracker to provide a highly personalized luxury African safari experience. The main house is complemented by six individual cottages, a fully equipped gym overlooking a tennis court, a spa treatment room, wine cellar and country-style kitchen.

Singita Castleton consists of a main house with communal living spaces, and accommodation located in six individual cottages within the grounds, catering for up to 12 people. It is steeped in history, capturing the spirit of the original Castleton house, giving the lodge a historical and comforting nature. Singita Castleton has been designed to combine the best elements of a private safari lodge with the rustic charms of a country farmhouse, with the added benefit of extensive high-end facilities, including a vast garden, swimming pool, wine cellar, gym, tennis court and spa treatment room.

Guests can relax together in the courtyard, gather around the traditional ‘boma’ or meet in the country-style kitchen, yet the individual cottages allow guests to retreat to the privacy of their own space as and when it’s needed. All of this is overlooking a waterhole where animals regularly gather to drink.
