Sweni Lodge is located on the banks of the Sweni River, on a 15,000 hectare private concession of the Kruger National Park. It is approximately 8 hours by road from Johannesburg, although Federal Air offers a daily direct flight to Singita Kruger National Park from Johannesburg as well as air transfers to and from Kruger Mpumalanga International Airport. The road journey from the airport to Sweni Lodge is approximately 216 km and will take 4 hours. Sweni Lodge exudes a sense of intimacy and seclusion. Built on stilts with decks of dark timber, it is the smallest of the Singita Lodges, decorated with flashes of lime, avocado and kiwi and with just six supremely luxurious hides tucked away among the trees it is the perfect place to watch the abundance of game and birdlife. All suites have floor-to-ceiling glass walls, luxurious bathrooms, indoor and outdoor showers, a living area and a private wooden deck with day bed. The main lodge area has a lounge, a bar, a wine cellar and a swimming pool and the timber deck dining areas have views of the bush and the Sweni river. The nearby Singita Village and African Gallery stock exclusive clothing, African artefacts, art and basic necessities such as camera film and batteries. Twice daily game drives with professional guides and trackers are available and guided walking safaris are available on request. Sweni Lodge also has a spa complete with a fully-equipped gym, for the more active guest.
