Simbambili Game Lodge
Luxury Safari Lodge in the Sabi Sand Reserve
Sabi Sand Reserve, Greater Kruger, Mpumalanga
The Sabi Sand Reserve is a private Big Five nature reserve which is part of the Greater Kruger National Park, South Africa.
A dream destination for big cat lovers, 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.
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.

The day starts as dawn breaks over the African bushveld. After an early morning wakeup call, coffee, tea & rusks are served on the main deck. Shortly after, depart in an open Land Cruiser with experienced Rangers 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.
