A safari lodge set on peaceful riverbanks in the Timbavati Private Game Reserve
Located on Timbavati Private Game Reserve, Simbavati River Lodge promises an unforgettable safari getaway for couples and families alike with a choice of secluded suites, family-friendly chalets, and luxury tented accommodation. The beautiful river setting complements the traditional safari decor, and the subtle contemporary features enhanced by ample amenities give the ultimate experience of luxury. The reserve forms part of the Greater Kruger region and offers fantastic Big 5 game-viewing opportunities. One of the clear favourites of this stay is the dining deck with a flood-lit waterhole below it, frequented by herds of elephants. Other classic safari activities include sundowners, night drives, traditional boma dinners, and indulgent spa treatments.
Best time to go to Greater Kruger Region
The best time to spot wildlife in the Greater Kruger Region is during the dry season, which typically falls between May and September. This wintertime season offers the best opportunity to spot the wildlife as the animals are drawn to the waterholes and other sources of water and the vegetation is less dense. During this time, the days are warm and the nights are cooler. The summer months have more rainfall and the green landscapes provide a stunning backdrop for photos. Plenty of young animals and their predators are present and bird watching is particularly enjoyable.
