An African honeymoon safari at Singita Sweni provides all the elements of a perfect romantic getaway.
Safari Review | Singita Sweni Safari Lodge, Kruger National Park
By Carrie Hampton
Riverine Forest AccommodationLike its sister lodge, Singita Lebombo, at the top end of the gorge, Singita Sweni Lodge's six suites are erected on dark timber decks supported by stilts. But, unlike Lebombo, Sweni, nestled in a riverine forest, has a particularly African feel. Khaki browns and olive-green safari colours are present, but their application departs from convention: large comfortable sofas have been covered in utilitarian green tent canvas.
Decor and DesignSingita Sweni offers just the right quantities of privacy and mingling with other guests in a luxury retreat of only six suites.
The stark lines of the mosquito nets around the beds are tempered by a cascade of green and grey seeds at the head of each bed and orange lampshades that soften the evening light. Every touch somehow blends with the environment, yet demands attention by its very difference.
