Simbavati Waterside

Luxury Safari Lodge in the Klaserie Reserve, Greater Kruger National Park.
The Southern Klaserie Reserve, Greater Kruger National Park.

Flanking a large dam in the southern Klaserie Private Nature Reserve, Simbavati Waterside was conceptualised, designed and built to be a natural extension of the pure utopian Klaserie wilderness from which it draws its inspiration.

Water is the source of life. Throughout the year countless animal species – including predators, elephants, hippo and buffalo – are drawn to the dam to cool off and quench thirst (sometimes in herds numbering hundreds).

Game drives take place in the early morning and late afternoon when the animals are naturally most active. Sunset drinks are an integral part to being on safari and following this iconic tradition the afternoon game drives continue after the sun goes down, using a spotlight in the hope of catching a glimpse of a nocturnal hunter in the beam.

Suited for any traveller, Simbavati Waterside offers luxury accommodation for families and couples. Families can enjoy interleading family suites and family safaris. While, those in search of romance will enjoy the lodge’s many intimate spaces, imaginative private dining settings, and surprise treats to celebrate honeymoons and anniversaries.

Facilities include a swimming pool, ‘Beach Boma’ at eye level with the dam’s water, ‘Bush Boma’ for dinner under the stars, wine cellar, lounge, bar, spa, gym, and safari boutique.

Luxury Suites
There are two luxury water-facing suites boasting a king-sized bed and a beautiful game viewing deck overlooking the dam, thriving with wildlife. Guests can enjoy a spacious en suite bathroom and dressing area with ample storage space, an indoor shower, double vanity, an enclosed toilet and a door leading out to an outdoor rain shower.

Two-Bedroom Luxury Suites
There are four family suites. Each offering a main bedroom with king-sized bed, open-plan bathroom en-suite, with bath and interconnected indoor and outdoor rain-showers, and a separate WC. The second bedroom has twin beds, which can be converted to a king bed, and a separate bathroom en-suite with an indoor rain shower and WC. Each bedroom has a beautiful game viewing deck with a view of the water.

Luxury Suite with private KolKol tub
Two suites face the bush, each with a private deck and small private KolKol tub, heated by a gas-fire in winter. Each has a king-sized bed (or twin), a spacious en-suite bathroom and dressing area with ample storage space, an indoor shower, double vanity, enclosed toilet, and a door leading out to an outdoor rain shower.
