Overview of Simbavati Waterside

Standing on a staggering 60,000 hectares of untamed wilderness, Klaserie Game Reserve forms part of the greater Kruger National Park and is one of the largest privately owned reserves in South Africa. More than just stunning natural beauty with diverse wildlife, it is also home to Simbavati Waterside Lodge, a luxury property that offers guests an exclusive and private safari experience in Africa.

The lodge was conceptualised, designed and built to be a natural extension of the Klaserie wilderness from which it draws its inspiration. If you’re seeking the perfect romantic getaway or family holiday, Simbavati Waterside is a luxury safari sojourn. The lodge features sophisticated décor, sublime cuisine and intimate spaces for absolute privacy.

The game viewing is as exceptional as the lodge itself. Being so close to the Kruger National Park, game drives are a great way to encounter many beloved species of wildlife that have made this region famous. T Simbavati Waterside also flanks a large dam in the southern region of the reserve,  where elephant, hippo and buffalo are drawn to quench their thirst,  all right in front of the lodge – a perfect armchair safari experience.

Each suite features a king bed, ensuite bathroom with shower, double vanity and separate toilet, as well as a dressing area with ample storage space, outdoor shower, and a game viewing deck from which to observe the beautiful surroundings.

    General Facilities

    When not out exploring the vast wilderness, there’s plenty to do back at the lodge. From mid-morning breakfasts on the dining deck and dinners around the fire in the open-air boma to rejuvenating spa treatments, refreshing workouts in the fitness centres, and refreshing dips in the pool, all facilities are geared for ultimate pampering in the wild. No safari experience would be complete without watching the African sunset while sipping on sundowners on the deck and observing the riverbed and waterhole below. Don’t forget to pick up a souvenir or two at the safari boutique before departing the lodge.
