Singita Castleton is surrounded by 45,00-acres of wilderness in South Africa’s Sabi Sand Reserve. The area is one of the most sought after locations for game viewing based on its untouched nature and exclusivity. Singita Castleton, once the home of the grandfather of Singita’s Founder, Luke Bailes, offers a prestigious stay.
Entering the next decade with a bang, Singita Castleton has undergone a refreshing new design concept to continue in its goal of providing one of the most luxurious and comfort-focused stays in the African bush to its guests.
Everything at Singita Castleton, from the main homestead to the six-guest cottage, has been updated with lighter interiors creating a more open design concept.
Many antiques and furnishings of the original homestead have been refashioned for added authenticity in the decor of the living spaces, a new yoga pavilion with a state-of-the-art fitness centre has been added to the private-use villa, and the property’s wine cellar has been expanded and is now located adjacent to the dining room and lounge.
As part of Singita’s Private Villa Collection, guests at Castleton can enjoy the comforts of a private game-viewing vehicle. They will be offered a full staff complement, including a Field Guide, private chef and host.
The reserve’s wildlife is protected by the Singita Lowveld Trust, an independent non-profit fund.
Singita Castleton offers the perfect location for a bush escape for families and groups of friends, with numerous opportunities for activities, including boules, tennis, cricket and a private pool. The main house boasts comfortable, beautifully designed communal living spaces, and cottages accommodating a maximum of 12 guests.
