My two young adult children and I had the experience of a lifetime during our August 2011 trip to Singita Boulders. Not even the unseasonable weather could dampen our eagerness to greet each new day and game drive. Our ranger Nick was not only an excellent guide, but also truly became a friend, and his enthusiasm for wildlife echoed our own - particularly upon seeing the rare pangolin, a sighting which attracted vehicles from all over the reserve. Our tracker Jabulani was a wonderful character, making sure to have plenty of amurula for our morning coffee, notwithstanding all the great quantities of amazing wines we had drunk the night before. Perhaps the greatest delight was coming upon smoke rising from the bush one morning, only to learn that Angelique and our butler Moses had arranged for a sumptuous bush breakfast just for our family, complete with a buffet of fruit, cereals, and pastries, a chef to make duck egg omelets with warthog bacon, and plenty of champagne. Our stay went too fast and we hated to leave all the wonderful acquaintances we had made, some of whom we hope to see in the US in future. We can't recommend Singita, its accommodations and its level of service, any more highly. You will see all of the wildlife you'd hope for and more, all while experiencing the luxury of a 5 star hotel. I agree with everyone who has said it is worth every penny.
