My wife and I chose Simbambili mainly based on it's reviews but we also found it had quite a lot of photographs of animals which we thought would bring plenty of animals to see and it did. Before we arrived we were met by a friendly elephant while in our transfer vehicle. Once we arrived we were met with fresh...

We are lucky to secure the waterhole suite as we booked really early for this trip! The viewing from the terrace was truly amazing and unforgettable, not to mention we just simply lying on the day bed to see all great animals coming to the warethole. Comfortable room and amazing lodgings, we had great sleep every night. I can't believe...

Fantastic experience. Food, rooms, setting and most of all the animals. Getting up close with the animals was fantastic, forgetting to lock my room door lead to me sharing it briefly with a baboon! The staff from top to bottom looked after us all fantastically and the game drives were amazing. Possibly a little hot in December, but I would...

My wife and I came here for our Honeymoon. It was recommended by our travel agent (Go2Africa) and it was exceptional. The rooms were amazing with very comfortable beds, romantic shower, and private outdoor area. Food was great and different every day. Because the Game Lodge is not big, there was a very intimate feel at all times. The best...

My wife and I stayed in the waterhole suite as part of our honeymoon. The suite, like the main dining area, has spectacular views over the waterhole where a variety of animals come regularly to drink. Each room also comes with a patio, an outside bed, and a plunge pool - perfect for relaxing between drives. The food, breakfast, lunch,...

Spent 3 days at Simbambili, the attitude of the staff made the trip. Sipps our ranger was knowledgeable and tracked all the animals we wanted to see. Very good value and will definitely visit here again.
