Set on a 33,000-acre private concession within South Africa’s Kruger National Park, Singita Sweni Lodge is an intimate six-room escape surrounded by thick riverine vegetation and long favored by the publicity-shy. The property recently reopened following a notable upgrade that included the addition of a show kitchen, a glass-walled lounge and an expanded outdoor dining deck. A secluded new Pool Suite — which can be connected to an adjacent unit to accommodate a family — offers an additional level of privacy. Another superlative option for families is provided by Singita Serengeti House in Tanzania, a residence of four suites located on Sasakwa Hill, overlooking the plains of the western Serengeti (across which the wildebeest migration passes in June each year). This, too, has recently been reimagined, with an extended master suite, a new kitchen, a full gym, a spa suite, a media room and an updated tennis pavilion.
