At the recommendation of a friend, my husband and two teenage sons stayed at Simbambili Lodge in December 2017. It was an amazing three-day experience for all of us! Our first time in Africa, we arrived at lunchtime a bit jet-lagged with only a vague idea of what was going to happen.
Walking in to the main dining lounge with open-air views of elephants at a water hole was a wonderful introduction. We literally forgot about the outside world as Simbambili was so breathtaking. All of the staff, especially Ashley and Tanya, were incredibly friendly and helpful making us all feel so welcome.
Our lunch, as with every meal we had at Simbambili had after that, was superb. Hut style accommodation with a private pool and timber deck was luxurious but classically simple making you feel part of the natural environment.
The best was yet to come. That afternoon, five minutes into the first game drive, our guide Mike had us up close with zebras, baby elephants and giraffes. We had never expected anything so fantastic – even the teenage boys were speechless!
The next two-and-and-a-half days were amazing. Mike went out of his way to ensure we had the best experience possible. We saw incredible wildlife and have memories that will stay with us forever.
Our stay at Simbambili, although only three days in length, was definitely one our most memorable holidays. We all highly recommend it!More
