In Pictures – Singita Castleton

Singita is a name synonymous with the best in African luxury safari and their all-encompassing lodges live up to the accolade/praise. This star-covered bucolic country getaway is nothing short of decadent, full of historic charm acquired over generations and one of the Sabi Sands’ most sought-after destinations.

Steeped in history, Castleton Camp is the original family home of Singita’s founder Luke Bailes’ grandfather built in the mid-20th century. The newly refurbished family property has since been transformed into a homestead characterised by it spacious and graceful relaxation areas, unforgettable experiences and world-class interior design.

The lodge displays a palette of warm, earthy tones, and dried grass colours complement a series of South African botanical art etchings commissioned exclusively for the house, each one reflecting an example of local indigenous flora. The house also has a collection of botanical installations with historical references that adds an element of nostalgia to the décor.

Sometimes the only way to truly unwind is a well-deserved luxury escape to the majestic wilderness, and Singita Castleton is the perfect place to do this. This blissful and beautifully decorated lodge is Africa’s perfect combination – it encompasses everything you dream the bush to be; luxurious safari experiences, romantic, a wellness retreat and a home-away-from-home for those travelling with the whole family.

What could be more perfect than spending time with your closest family and friends in your own exclusive-use luxury villa, in the heart of the Sabi Sands Private Game reserve? Castleton Camp gifts you this rare treasure of spending uninterrupted time in the lap of luxury, away from the distractions of ‘life’ in a surrounding that is infinitely peaceful and secluded.
