In the 1970's during the excavations of Border Cave, a small piece of the fibula of a baboon, the Lebombo bone, was found marked with 29 clearly defined notches, and, at 37,000 years old, it ranks with the oldest mathematical objects known.
The bone is dated approximately 35,000 BC and resembles the calendar sticks still in use by Bushmen clans in Nimibia.
The closest town to the LebomboMountains is Siteki, renowned for its Inyanga and Sangoma School, a government school to train healers and diviners.
The Lebombo Concession is exclusive to guests at Singita and lies within the boundaries of the world-renowned Kruger National Park.
The Lebombomountain range which runs through the eastern section has a particular impact on the habitat, which is significantly distinct from the habitat at Singita's other properties in the Sabi Sand Reserve to the west.
The land comprises foothills of the Lebombo range, and overlooks the Nwanetsi River at its confluence with the Sweni River and the savannah plains beyond.
