A warm personal touch, high levels of comfort and world-class cuisine are memorable aspects of a stay at Simbambili Game Lodge in Mpumalanga.
Unique Wildlife Viewing
The superb game viewing almost goes without saying, since Simbambili is located in the Sabi Sand Game Reserve in the north-western corner of the Kruger National Park, an area abundant with game.
But what makes a Simbambili safari stand out is informative and entertaining way in which its rangers impart their knowledge.
Expert Safari Guides
Simbambili's rangers do not just rattle off facts. They embellish information with the unexpected, such as the fact that a giraffe has the same number of neck vertebrae (seven) as a human and that this is also the same number of neck vertebrae as a mouse and a whale.
If the guides manage to inform and enthuse, then they have done their job well. At Simbambili, they enlighten and amuse - making them the 'giraffe' among game rangers, standing head and shoulders above the rest.
A Chef's Compliment
There can surely be no greater compliment for a chef than to have his dinner guests ask for his recipes. This happens regularly at Simbambili, but such is the chef's ability to diversify that he sometimes cannot name the exact ingredients or measurements used in a particular recipe.
On a whim, he may add a new spice or other ingredients to a long-time favourite and so a new dish is born. Perhaps that is how he came about his sweet potato dish laced with honey, brown, sugar, sweet chilli and cinnamon.
Above & Beyond
Three more special Simbambili touches deserve a mention, all of which have to do with making private time at this lode that bit more unforgettable.
A candle-lit foam bath, a splash pool set into the outdoor deck of your suite, and a double daybed on your own shaded relaxation area from where you can experience the magical sounds and colours of the African bush.Stay at Simbambili Game Lodge
