From the moment we walked into the lodge at Serengeti Simba, we knew this was like no other tented lodge in which we had stayed. The layout and décor were nothing short of swank; the welcome we received rivaled that of a 5-star hotel. The tent (more like a yurt) was spacious, well decorated, comfortable, with amenities you would expect...

We stayed in this lodge for 2 nights during our 5 day safari in April 2016. We experienced the other Simba Lodges near Ngorongoro and Tarangire and we were thinking things couldn't get better.

What a great experience to stay at Simba Lodge (all of 3 them!). The way from Serengeti NP to the lodge takes about 30 minutes (from the centre of the park about 1 hour, most games drives will take place in the centre). But it's worth it! The accomodation was fantastic. Nice lodge, amazing view, staff was very very kind!...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Located outside Serengeti National Park’s Ikoma Gate with endless views across the plains. Built of local materials and using solar power and hot water in the rooms, this lodge is unique to the area. Reception, lounge, bar and dining incorporate a natural rocky outcropping (kopje) into the design. Fifteen creatively designed large canvas rondavels reveal the romance of a tent with the security of a permanent structure. Each bathroom has an outdoor stone shower. Family rooms are in a ‘stone house’ with equally impressive views. ... more   less
