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.

Kate was great to work with in the planning stage. She was prompt, helpful, and efficient. Our tour guide, Edwin, was knowledgeable and passionate. We were very happy to have traveled with Adventure Life, it made the trip easy and a true pleasure. We could concentrate on enjoying the experience rather than the details of travel.
