Venue Setting

Formerly the family home of Singita founder Luke Bailes’ grandfather, Singita Castleton is an exclusive use lodge 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. 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.

Venue Features
Design:

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 refashioned, 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 personalised 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.

Sabi Sand Game Reserve, Sabie Park, Mpumalanga, South Africa



All in favor of adding an African safari to your birthday celebration bucket list, raise a hand! We couldn’t agree with you more, especially upon seeing this stunning resort in South Africa and learning about the amazing things they do to save the animals and preserve the beautiful land they so respect. Singita Castleton is a Mecca for animal and nature lovers as much as it is for those who love a luxurious getaway. An impeccably designed resort, this is one of those spots that’ll have you wondering why you don’t celebrate your birthday with a major adventure every year.
