Simbambili Lodge is set among dense thickets of Knobthorn and Jackalberry trees along the Manyeleti River in the heart of Africa’s renowned Sabi Sand Game Reserve, bordering the Kruger National Park. Simbambili offers a dream safari experience in Moroccan-styled suites that blend sensitively with the environment and designed to woo the romantic at heart. For those who love their own plunge pools, and especially one with a view of a waterhole for languid hours of cool viewing, Simbambili ticks the right boxes. And when guests at Simbambili discover that they’re famed for their leopard sightings and abundant bird life, they’re already dreaming of an African holiday of a lifetime.
Even better, Simbambili only takes a maximum of 16 guests, with all living areas providing home-from-home comforts and gourmet meals to end fulfilled days of exciting sightings mixed with the pure pleasure of down time.
A chance to siesta, read or even escape to the Amani African Spa for their holistic body, skin and beauty treatments is exactly what a safari holiday calls for at Simbambili.
Out in the bush, local Shangaan trackers at Simbambili will enthrall with their stories while rangers guide you through the endless sightings of animals both big and small. Simbambili’s Leopard Diaries tell all, so armchair safari travellers can immerse themselves in the records of sightings in the weeks before and after they arrive – a wonderfully immediate way of connecting with the wild.
It’s the exclusivity of this luxurious African safari experience that counts: at Simbambili Game Lodge there are only seven suites, each en-suite and with outdoor salas and plunge pools for relaxation, and one larger Waterhole Suite, making this an intimate safari experience to treasure forever.
