We stayed 4 nights here two weeks ago and it was our first Safari experience. It was the best experience .. the staff were fantastic. Liam was our guide and Mumps our tracker, and they were affectionately named the A-team by our fellow travellers. Our bush experience with all the wonderful animals was just brilliant .. the knowledge that Liam... More

My husband and I had a 4 night stay - our 1st experience of a safari so unable to compare to other lodges. We had a wonderful time, the accommodation is simply superb. The bed is very comfortable, great bathroom, great out look with an expansive verandah with sunbeds, plunge pool and double outdoor bed under a hut for shading.... More

I absolutely love travelling to Africa and have stayed at a number of lodges in the Sabi Sands. Simbambili was a last minute choice and due to the other lodges being booked out, we stayed there because they had availability. I was a little apprehensive as it is in the Northern Sabi Sands which makes traveling by car a tad... More

My wife and I only spent one night at Simbambili Lodge, but it was honestly one of the best times we have had. The staff were very warm and welcoming. The lodge is amazing and overlooks a watering hole. The game viewing is top notch! Before we arrived I had told them that it was our honeymoon and if they... More

There's nothing I would add, subtract or alter to our visit at Simbambili. Gabby and Allison made us welcome and went all out for our anniversary, strewing our room with rose petals and dozens of tea lights, running a tub for us with champagne on ice within reach! Dinner in our room in warm terry robes! The game drives with... More

What a way to be begin my stay in Africa. This was by far the best all-round game lodge I stayed in...The food at lunch time was amazing... I did try to get some recipes from the lady chef with no luck....Adrian, our guide and Service, the tracker, were excellent and all the staff were so pleasant. My room was... More

This was the second lodge we stayed at on our honey moon, our first was excellent, so Simbambili had a lot to live up to. We arrived around 7pm and evening game drives were finished for the day, so we were shown to our room clean up for dinner at 7.30pm. The room did not disappoint in anyway (once we... More

We travelled to Simbambili a year ago and the memory is still strong so I had to write a review encouraging others to go. I am completely confident that every imaginable traveller will never forget or regret their Simbambili experience and we went there ourselves based on the consistency of the positive TripAdvisor reviews. The staff at Simbambili make everyone's... More

In a three week tour across Southern Africa, to say that our stay at Simbambili Game Lodge was the most incredible part of the trip would be only an understatement. From the beautiful rooms overlooking the bush to the quality of drives and close observation of different animals, our experience was nothing short of incredible. In the first day alone,... More

Our honeymoon stay at Simbambili Game Lodge was incredible. My husband & I both have food allergies, and the staff was incredibly accodomating. Our guide Liam & tracker Mumps took us on incredible drives, and we saw the big 5 within the first day. We loved the dinner in various locations, our favorite was the BBQ in the riverbed with...
