About Simbambili Game Lodge
Offering unparalleled luxury in an unspoilt environment, Simbambili Game Lodge is situated among dense stands of knobthorn and jackalberry trees along the meandering Manyeleti dry river bed in the Sabi Sand Game Reserve. It forms part of the world-renowned Kruger National Park.
With its Morroccan-style suites that have been sensitively designed to blend with the environment and carefully positioned to enhance privacy, this is a must for the romantic at heart. Sophisticated yet simple, each suite has spectacular views over an extensive savannah grassland that teems with wildlife, as seen from the unique en-suite bathrooms and salas or from individual private plunge pools.
This exquisite lodge is famed for its regular leopard sightings and abundance of general game species, as well as extraordinary bird life. With the lodge accommodating a maximum of 16 guests, public areas are carefully designed to resemble hospitality akin to a comfortable home with specially prepared meals and venues for entertaining and relaxation.
The Sabi Sand Game Reserve is famous for its Big 5 and it has the highest concentration of leopard in the world. It offers cat lovers a chance to meet the stars of the Simbambili Leopard Project. It is an online journal of the life of three leopards, Saseke the beautiful one, Mafufenyane the angry one, and Nyaleti the star.
