Activities at Simbambili Game Lodge

The day starts as dawn breaks over the African bushveld. After your early morning wake-up call. Shortly after, you depart in your open landrover with your experienced rangers and trackers who will share their extensive knowledge of the bush with you. These drives are undertaken at times best suited for game viewing, which vary depending on the season but typically start early morning. Where applicable you may be invited out of the vehicle to see tracks, examine certain plants and follow spoor. After an exhilarating hunt for tracks to see what the animals have been up to during the night, and tracking down whatever you find, you will stop somewhere out in the bush for a break of coffee & tea. Time to stretch your legs whilst having your sunglasses cleaned and indulge in cool towels in summer, and hot towels in winter. In winter, you are kept warm on the vehicle with hot water bottles and warm blankets. After a sumptuous Breakfast is served either back at the camp or in the riverbed or bush, you are offered walks to suit their interests and fitness levels and are accompanied by an armed ranger and tracker. Walks allow you a better chance to see some smaller creatures of the bush as well as an opportunity to learn more about the flora and fauna of the region and to have a chance to follow tracks in more detail. The Shangaan trackers will enthrall you with their explanations of the medicinal and other uses of the numerous plants and trees along with tales of traditional folklore. The rest of the day is spent at the discretion of yourself for other activities that are on offer, with a late lunch served around 15h00. Lunch is followed by the afternoon game drive and extends into the evening to view seldom seen nocturnal species by torchlight.

Tripadvisor comments Simbambili Game Lodge

This was without doubt the highlight of our holiday, a simply unforgettable experience. We enjoyed 8 game drives with our brilliant guide and tracker; Mike and Mr T. We saw the big five plus giraffes, hippopotamus, wild dogs, impala, hyenas, crocodile and a wealth of exotic bird life (including a snake eagle consuming a puff adder). Every drive was an exhilarating experience and Mike and Mr T ensured we all got the most out of our time in the bush.

We had an amazing trip to Simambili Game Lodge with our 3 children. Warmly welcomed upon arrival by Mike, Tania and Caroline as well as the rest of the staff who all will go above and beyond to make the stay unforgettable. The suites are beautifully decorated, and situated along the property overlooking the reserve.
