Singita Sweni Lodge
Kruger National Park

Singita Sweni Lodge is made up of six wood and glass suites seemingly floating above Sweni River – luxurious tree houses enveloped by a dense canopy of verdant trees. Close proximity to the river ensures a constant panorama of visiting wildlife – a rich and thrillingly intimate scene. This sense of intimacy is also reflected in the lodge’s atmosphere. The suites are generous in the signature Singita style. The river views allow for action-packed bath times – nothing beats gazing down at hippos and elephants while soaking in bubbles. Choose between sleeping inside or out on a private covered deck.

Dinners offer a decadent experience with silver and china laid out in the bush lit by numerous candle lanterns. Do indulge in a private wine tasting in the cellars. Sweni Lodge is a truly boutique experience, the smaller scale allowing for a deeply tranquil atmosphere. The spa is excellent as well as the gym. Game drives are a highlight with the big five awaiting discovery as well as the flora and fauna of the jungle. As with all Singita lodges, children are well catered for here and welcomed with open arms.

Client Testimonials

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
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
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
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
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
I would recommend Ampersand without any hesitation!!! The best travel agent that I’ve ever had dealings with. Everything – from the individual care and attention in helping to plan the trip, through to the efficiency of the agents on the ground in India – was handled brilliantly. An absolutely first-class service all round.
- Matthew Annable, Rajasthan, 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 thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
Ampersand’s preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet booking age. They were a delight to deal with!
- Mr David Wallace, North India
