Among the many factors involved in creating the best safari experience in Africa is the logistical challenge of sourcing and stocking the extensive wine cellars at each lodge and camp. In our behind-the-scenes wine cellar tasting at Singita, we share the fascinating details of what it takes to put together a top-end wine list in such remote locations. Just let us know if you’d like to set up a personalized wine tasting at the beautiful Singita Boulders & Ebony Wine Cellars during your visit.

“Singita Premier Wine Direct is available to current, past and future Singita guests, but usually comes into play when specific wines have been enjoyed in camp. Key to the service is developing a personal guest wine profile of wines enjoyed and purchased, so that we can offer future wine selections geared to specific preference,”
