    Simbavati Hilltop Lodge

    Designed with a light eco-footprint, Simbavati Hilltop Lodge offers a reimagined luxury tent experience. The unique tented lodge has been created so that it can be removed without any lasting effects on the land. Eight tented suites exude pure class and sophistication, married perfectly with eco-elegance. Perched on a hilltop overlooking the Timbavati Private Game Reserve in the Greater Kruger National Park, guests are spoilt with wide-angle views over mountains, bushveld, and river landscapes. Your safari experience here is led by expert rangers who do their best to track the animals you are particularly interested to see. Night drives, photographic safaris, and guided nature walks all offer alternative ways to experience and capture the beauty of nature.

    Besides being home to the Big 5, Timbavati Private Game Reserve offers plenty of opportunities to spot other magnificent wildlife including giraffe, zebra, hyena, warthog, and various antelope species. The reserve serves as a protective habitat for endangered black and white rhino and pangolins and is one of the only places in Africa where the White Lion can be found. This alone makes it a one-of-a-kind experience—but there is so much more to indulge in.

    There is never a moment at Simbavati Hilltop Lodge where you are not captivated by the beauty of nature intertwined with stylishly graceful design. The main lodge features wraparound decks with panoramic views, an infinity pool, a lounge area, and a dining tent. Guests will also enjoy meals in the alfresco dining area as well as in the open-air boma with crackling fires and starlit skies.
