Singita Sweni Lodge – South Africa

Sweni Lodge  is Singita’s other contemporary lodge which was influenced by the structures of dens, warrens and lairs found in the area. Flanking the Sweni River, this tranquil sanctuary is elevated on stilts with decks of timber. Even when indoors, one has the sensation of being close to the river and trees.

The six secluded suites, with tactile furnishings, have been carefully created to bring in the textures and shades of the bush. Designed with open-plan living in mind, the suite flows from the bathroom area, through to the lounge and into the bedroom.

For privacy, each area may be sealed off by curtains as in d image below (okay maybe not curtains but panels).

The outdoor shower overlooking the river gives it a magical feel and the day bed on the viewing deck allows for camping out under the stars.
