I liked my 45 square meter well appointed contemporary style room, the wildlife viewing (we saw four of the Big Five), including outstanding lion and elephant sightings, comfort food, and friendly and attentive service. I would return and recommend it to friends.
At Earth Lodge time disappeared in the blink of an eye, leaving me wanting to linger longer by the main area water feature, in a comfy hanging lawn chair with an expansive view of the bush and any four legged visitors or poolside in my spacious and secluded Amber Presidential Suite. It was with regret that we left after two nights, and we look forward to returning in the future.
Given the abundance of food on safari and the restriction on places to walk I appreciated the availability of a fitness room. Simbambili will be on our short list of safari properties in the northern end of the Sabi Sand Reserve thanks to its combination of rewarding game viewing, luxury amenities and facilities.
We liked the property as much for its personal touch and warm service as for its creature comforts and European inspired rooms. We would return and recommend it to friends traveling in that region seeking a romantic or relaxing getaway.
We especially enjoyed the setting. Whether sitting by our suite pool catching a glimpse of a herd of dainty nyala on the dry riverbed below, gazing across the main lodge pool at the wild greenery beyond or at the starlit sky above there was always something to admire. We appreciated that the staff served most of our meals by the north facing main lodge pool, which offered a favorite water and bush vista.
