Simbambili Game Lodge

Explore the Wild: Discover the Beauty of the Sabi Sand Nature Reserve

Overview

Simbambili Game Lodge is located in the northern part of the world-famous Sabi Sand Game Reserve in the Greater Kruger Park, an area renowned for its game viewing and prolific leopard sightings.

Set amongst the old Knobthorns and Jackalberries, Simbambili offers sophisticated safari accommodation that echoes its unspoilt landscape. The lodge overlooks a waterhole so you’d be hard pressed to leave when you can watch a herd of elephants come down to drink or warthogs playing in the mud.

One of the secrets to Simbambili’s success is that managers and gracious hosts Mike and Tania have been here for more than 10 years. They manage a team who are loved for their warm, friendly approach and personal attention to detail.

What to Expect

A dream destination for big cat lovers. Lithe, agile, poised, the leopard is power and sinuous grace combined, and a sighting, however brief, is one of the most prized big cat encounters in the world.

Simbambili Game Lodge is located in the North Eastern Sabi Sand Game Reserve, home to the highest concentration of leopard in the world, and offers unparalleled opportunities for rewarding encounters with these magnificent creatures, along with the rest of the big five in the sweeping savanna of the Sabi Sand Reserve.

Blending seamlessly with its environment, Simbambili Game Lodge brings the romance of Africa to life with sophisticated suites, each offering spectacular seasonal riverbed views, as well as the Sabi bushveld and its incredibly diverse bird and animal life.

Guests at Simbambili Game Lodge have the added delight of an onsite spa offering the latest beauty treatments with a range of luxuriant products and the added novelty of massages with a view over the rolling plains. Simbambili offers a small, intimate exercise room featuring key equipment for light training purposes.

The accommodation has been carefully laid out, designed and decorated to blend in with the surrounding knobthorn and jackalberry woodlands. Splashes of rust-coloured and gold finishes add depth to the elegantly muted styling of the luxurious rooms.

Expansive wooden decks wrap around the front of each unit and even the open plan bathrooms open onto this key element. The lavish baths and modern showers offer a splendid vantage point over the savannah with the option to close the glass fronted doors against the elements. Another feature of the decks, apart from the wonderful views, is a private plunge pool to soothe away hot summer afternoons and a private sala for daydreaming and resting in the heat of the day. Air conditioning and ceiling fans are provided in all the suites, along with a mini bar, hairdryer and safe. A telephone is provided for those vital early morning wake up calls. Super-king size beds and the finest cotton linen will ensure that you arise refreshed for your day’s adventures.

Early morning and late afternoon game drives

The day starts as dawn breaks over the African bushveld. After an early morning wake-up call, coffee, tea & rusks are served on the main deck. Shortly after, depart in an open Land Cruiser with experienced Guides and Trackers who will share their extensive knowledge of the bush. These drives are undertaken at times best suited for game viewing which vary depending on the season but typically start early morning. Where applicable you may be invited out of the vehicle to see tracks, examine certain plants and follow spoor.

The afternoon game drive is preceded by high tea and extends into the evening to view seldom seen nocturnal species by torchlight.

Guided Bushveld Walks

After a sumptuous breakfast is served either back at the camp or in the bush, guests are offered walks to suit their interests and fitness levels and are accompanied by an armed ranger and tracker.

Walks allow guests a better chance to see some of the smaller creatures of the bush as well as an opportunity to learn more about the flora and fauna of the region & to have a chance to follow tracks in more detail.

Trackers will enthral you with their explanations of the medicinal and other uses of the numerous plants and trees along with tales of traditional folklore.
