The blending of Nature & Interiors

Location: South Africa

Quaters: Singita Boulders Lodge

Why we love it: This safari outpost in a private game reserve on the border of South Africa’s Kruger National Park, and one of 12 superluxe lodgings and camps offered by Singita.


  • Designed by South African interiors firm Cécile & Boyd
  • Theme: Signature palette of neutrals (think bone, ochre, and charcoal), the property makes use of elements that look as though they were drawn from the surrounding terrain. Raw-timber pavilions and traditional thatched roofs offer organic texture throughout the 12 freestanding suites and public spaces. Locally made clay vessels occupy alcoves in the solid-stone slabs that serve as bookcases in the living rooms and dining areas, while logs and mortared rocks link the interiors to the scenic plains.
