Overall one of the very best experiences ever. Very personal service....with a max of 9 rooms/approx 18 guests this property is set up to deliver an extremely high level of personal service and I would say in a very genuine manner. The food was excellent - they also created different dining experiences for breakfast, lunch and especially dinner. The rooms were spacious, very private and amazing...great comforts, plunge pool, privacy, views, nothing spared. Most important to us was the Safari experience - delivered beyond our expectations - our Ranger, Sabre, was simply AMAZING, She knew how to find all the animals we wanted to see, always maneuvered the vehicle to get the best angles for viewing and picture taking - she also provided fantastic photo tips. A real professional, who loves what she does, extremely knowledgeable, patient and friendly. Our tracker, Conright, always seemed to spot what everyone else missed. We spent 6 days on Safari, each day brought a new WOW moment...simply amazing. We can not recommend Simbambili Lodge enough...if you get a chance book the Water Hole Room - you will have the ultimate BiG Screen to the wild!

Simbambili Game Lodge--room, meals, safaris
Phenomenal experience: 5-star service was superb, from arrival through departure (Kristina gave a wonderful first impression, and was a delight throughout our stay); room was beyond expectations (Waterhole Suite, overlooking the waterhole; with huge deck, outdoor spa, and adjoining sitting room); all meals (B-L-D) were delicious; guide (Doug)and tracker (Willies) for the lodge safaris (6-9 a.m. and 4-7 p.m.) were top notch. Can't wait to return for another visit. Expensive (for us), but an incredibly memorable experience. Truly an adventure of a lifetime.

Outstanding experience
If not the best, It will be one of the best experiences I have had in my life. My wife and I went for 4 days and 3 nights. The crew is amazing. The food and the service too. Our room was exactly as expected and was very clean. I will recommend Simbambili without any doubt. Great lodge.
