Singita Castleton Lodge
Sabi Sands Private Game Reserve

Your very own estate in the African bush. Formerly the family home of Singita founder Luke Bailes, Singita Castleton is an exclusive use lodge set within 45,000 acres of private reserve. The main villa is complemented by six individual cottages, catering for up to 12 people. The property, combining rustic charm with luxurious amenities, overlooks an active watering hole (spot elephants, zebras and warthogs amongst others).

Guests can enjoy a vast garden, swimming pool, wine cellar, gym, tennis court and spa treatment room. The staff are dedicated to providing a uniquely memorable stay and the atmosphere is of a treasured family house. Meals are sumptuous with a convivial air and world class food. Special touches abound to set Castleton apart. The adventurous may like to do a pedal safari. This is the only reserve where a guided Mountain Bike Tour is feasible!

I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
Ampersand’s details preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet/direct booking age. Shalmali was a delight to work with – before and during our trip.
- Mr David Wallace, North India
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
