    Hello Property representatives to Simbambili, I would like to make a reservation for four wonderful ladies for the first week of June. It is better to do that directly through your website or through a company? If there is a company you can recommend that you like to work with ? Do the companies arrangement the travel from Cape Town or JBurg or do they just make the reservation for us at your lodge? Can you also tell me if you have rooms that will fit 4 people or would we have to 2 people in 2 rooms? Thank you in advance. We are so excited as this is our first time in South Africa and experiencing a safari!
