Villa Description

Reminiscent of an African farmhouse in “Big Cat Country,” Castleton captures the nostalgic spirit and history of the original camp. As the former home of the Bailes family, the lodge is full of history and stories, all in a privately owned 45,000 acre reserve near Kruger National Park.

Why It’s Special: Singita means “Place of Miracles” in Shangaan, and its spirit represents that in every way. Stunning authentic African design, incredible staff, and connection to nature makes for an life-changing, adventurous African experience.

The Space: 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.You’ll love lounging on the pool’s veranda, overlooking a watering hole where animals gather.

The Experience: An intimate lodge steeped in history, Castleton is designed for private use with its own staff, guide and tracker to provide a highly personalized luxury African safari experience.

The Design: Tartans and African fabrics complement leather and wood, lending a rustic but chic simplicity. Many of the antiques and original furnishings have been re-fashioned, adding authenticity

Location: Singita Sabi Sand is 1 hour from Johannesburg by plane, and 30 minutes from Nelspruit by plane. We can arrange scheduled flights or private charters for your trip. All flights land at Singita’s airstrip located 10 minutes from the lodge.

Amenities: The main lodge features a large swimming pool, an award-winning spa and gym, boutique shops, complimentary internet access and gourmet meals and beverages.


  • Daytime game drives and spotlit night drives with professional guides
  • During your stay, you are likely to spot a great variety of wildlife, including species such as leopard, lion, rhino, large herds of buffalo, elephant, reedbuck, hyena, hippopotamus, nyala, cheetah, wild dogs and many types of birds.
  • All our safaris at Singita Sabi Sand are conducted in Land Rovers with a maximum of six guests per vehicle.
  • Walking safaris, community visits, mountain biking, stargazing safaris and archery
  • *Children ages 10+ are welcome.

When to Visit: While it’s a year-round destination, the dry winter months (April to October) are best for game viewing. December to March are a bit rainier. Many species give birth to their young around the start of the rains, so the bush is alive with newborn animals.
