Honeymoon at Singita Ebony
The ‘singing’ of male cicadas comes from the noisemaker called a tymbal below each side of the abdominal exoskeletal. Contraction of internal muscles buckles tymbals inwards, producing a click; on relaxation the tymbals return to original position, producing another click. The male abdomen is largely hollow, and acts as a sound box. Rapid vibrations of these membranes modulate the clicks into continual notes and the enlarged resonance chambers amplify the sound.

The most spirited singing of the Cicada occurs on the hottest summer days.

A Perfect Safari Home.

The main homestead serves as the entry point after drives and features indoor and out living and dining spaces as the “hearth” of the ranch home. On winter days, this cozy retreat serves up lavish dinners for your party with fireplaces and comfy nooks that become family favorites. No wonder, we’re always booked up for the holidays!

The four elegant, climate-controlled cottages at Singita Castleton accommodate upto twelve guests. The Ranch home is only offered privately, for family reunions and get-togethers with friends.
