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. 

-Lounge area with sofa seating

We are so glad that we chose Adventure Life. The service is top-notch. Everything is well taken care of and we just have to print the documents and go. Franny even gave us timely updates on possible airport strike.
