Overview of Simbavati Grumeti

Simbavati Grumeti is nestled amidst acacia-dotted plains, located between the meandering Grumeti River and the World Heritage Site of the Serengeti National Park. The region is renowned for its abundance of wildlife sightings, ranging from plain game to big cats. You will find numerous opportunities to photograph larger-than-life elephants and dainty antelope. The northern circuit of the Serengeti is also home to hundreds of bird species, making it a proverbial tweaker’s paradise.

The lodge offers a unique perspective on wildlife movements, from herds of wildebeest crossing the river to zebras congregating for a refreshing drink. Immerse yourself in tranquillity and peace amidst the thickets on the Serengeti plains, staying in luxury canvas tents for a close-to-nature experience. Simbavati Grumeti also provides daily scheduled programs that allows you to tailor your safari excursions according to your preferences.

Simbavati Grumeti offers year-round spectacular big cat and plain game viewing, giving you a front-row seat to the fascinating migratory cycle of millions of wildebeest between June and July. Spa treatments and boma dining make it ideal for couples seeking a romantic adventure, while child-friendly facilities cater to active family getaways.
