Simbavati River Lodge is situated in the heart of the renowned Timbavati Private Game Reserve, which forms part of South Africa's Greater Kruger National Park. Tucked away along the banks of the Nhlaralumi River, guests can enjoy ample wildlife viewing from the deck dawn until dusk. Spend your afternoons unwinding on your private veranda, enjoying the sun by the lodge's pool, or discussing the day's events with fellow travelers around the bar. In the evenings, gather with both guests and staff for a typical Boma dinner - a traditional South African BBQ that is sure to leave a lasting impression.
The name Simbavati finds its roots in the local Shangaan language and when translated, it means “the place where the lions come down from the stars”. The focus of Simbavati River Lodge is on Big 5 wildlife viewing and providing a comfortable, family-friendly stay for travelers young and old.

This was my first experience with Adventure Life - and I couldn't have been more pleased with the trip. The guides and local staff in both Buenos Aires and Uruguay were terrific - extremely helpful and accommodating. I really enjoyed meeting the friendly staff in Buenos Aires in person (I left my bags with them for the afternoon).
