Simbavati River Lodge



Constructed on the banks of the Nhlaralumi River, where winter carves out a dry riverbed and the generous summer rains turn it into a flowing beauty, Simbavati River Lodge comes with a diversity of experiences. Translated from Shangaan, Simbavati means “place where the lions come down from the stars,” and you’re bound to encounter the Big Five during your stay.

This 4 Star rated modern lodge is renowned for its spellbinding views, expert staff and dedicated service all culminating in a comfortable and relaxing experience for our welcomed patrons. The boma, lounge, bar and large viewing decks looking out over the Nhlaralumi river, are the communal areas of the lodge where guests become privy to the habits of the wildlife visiting the rejuvenating river.
