Reminiscent of an African farmhouse, Singita Castleton is designed for exclusive use and the beautiful stone-walled homestead and six double en-suite cottages are perfect for families and friends. The full staff complement includes a Field Guide, chef and host and amenities like a fully equipped fitness centre, tennis court, spa treatment room, wine cellar and country-style kitchen accommodate every preference. Situated in the world-renowned Sabi Sand, it features relaxed and understated interiors imbued with nostalgic references. Castleton captures the spirit and history of the original camp, and tartans, ticking stripes and faded botanical-print fabrics blend in with leather, wood and wicker furniture, lending a rustic-chic atmosphere to the lodge. Many of the antiques and original furnishings have been refashioned, adding authenticity to comforting living spaces that extend outdoors onto deep, furnished verandas overlooking tree-shaded lawns and an expansive swimming pool. The park-like gardens overlook a watering hole where animals regularly gather to drink.
Set within 45,000 acres of private reserve, 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.
A team of dedicated chefs ensure that every meal at Singita becomes a special occasion. Breakfast, lunch, dinner and tea-time treats, prepared by the team of chefs, are of unparalleled quality and incorporate flavours from around the globe complemented with an African flair.
