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...

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...

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...

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...

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,...

Our honeymoon stay at Simbambili Game Lodge was incredible. My husband & I both have food allergies, and the staff was incredibly accodomating.

This has to be one of the best places in Sabi Sands. Every effort is made to make your safari a memory of a lifetime. No effort is spared to ensure that every little detail is attended to.

Being up close to African wildlife with a very knowledgeable guide and tracker was a wonderful enough experience for us, but the accommodation and service at Simbambili was truly amazing.
