Simbavati River Lodge offers an exclusive and authentic African Big 5 Safari experience over an extensive tract of pristine wilderness in the well-known Timbavati Private Nature Reserve, home to the famous white lions. Set amongst a truly unique landscape with magnificent views over the Nhlaralumi River where the surrounding wilderness can be appreciated sipping exotic cocktails, enjoying authentic cuisine or simply relaxing.
This intimate, family-friendly lodge boasts contemporary luxury accommodation in luxury safari tents or thatched family chalets elegantly decorated with sophisticated finishes where one can awaken to sights and sounds of the surrounding bush.
Breakfast and lunch are served daily outside on the wooden deck, set out under age-old Jackalberry and Leadwood trees, combining African and Western cuisine offering exciting new tastes for the more adventurous as well as for the more conventional preferences. A traditional dinner is served around the campfire in an open-air "Boma", an experience not to be missed.
The lodge offers Big 5 Safari game drives in the early morning and evening for exceptional game viewing when the animals are most active. Nocturnal animals, including the big cats, are regular sightings at night. Simbavati also offers specialized photographic game drives.
