Travellers' Choice
Located outside Serengeti National Park’s Ikoma Gate with endless views across the plains. Built of local materials and using solar power and hot water in the rooms, this lodge is unique to the area. Reception, lounge, bar and dining incorporate a natural rocky outcropping (kopje) into the design. Fifteen creatively designed large canvas rondavels reveal the romance of a tent with the security of a permanent structure. Each bathroom has an outdoor stone shower. Family rooms are in a ‘stone house’ with equally impressive views.

Our visit to Serengeti Simba Lodge was one of the best experiences of my life. It truly felt like an escape to the wilderness! The beginning of our journey began with a blast! As we were ascending towards the lodge which is located on the mountainside, we were greeted by a group of elephants! As soon as we reached the lodge, we were welcomed with refreshing juices and warm towels. Following the COVID-19 precautions, all staff were wearing masks. Our temperatures were checked and we were required to sanitize our hands before entering the reservation area! We were welcomed by both the managers Kenneth and Bill, who were extremely friendly to us throughout our stay! This made us feel like we were at home! Once we entered the reservation area, what caught my eye was the beautiful view of the Serengeti plains. As I walked towards the deck, my eyes caught onto the sun kissed pool and I was immediately intrigued to jump right in! The tented room was incredible. The room was spacious and offered a view of the plains of Serengeti, as well as the Wildebeest Migration. What amazed me the most about the room was it's outside shower. This was an incredibly different experience which I highly recommend for future guests! The food was as delicious as it looked. My personal favourite was the tomato soup that I paired with warm buttery home-made bread. Furthermore, the coconut cake that we had for dessert was scrumptious. The staff was kind enough to bake another coconut cake for my trip back home! All in all, this was a true escape to the wilderness. At Serengeti Simba, we were able to experience what it truly means to be in the wild - from the incredible views to the outside showers - we were offered a unique experience. The food felt like home and the staff was incredibly welcoming! Highly recommended!

My family of 4 spent the last 3 nights of our 8 day safari at Serengeti Simba Lodge in January, 2021. The location is incredible. This eco lodge is literally built into the mountainside. The views are amazing. Our room was very clean and comfortable and the outdoor shower was wonderful! My two teenagers enjoyed the reliable Wi-Fi in the main lodge. Manager Bill and all of the staff were lovely to interact with. We especially enjoyed the food. Our boxed lunches, buffet breakfasts and dinners were the best we experienced of the three places we stayed.

However much i praise simba lodge, i'll not be able to do justice to it. Our stay was fabulous! The owners went out of their way to indulge our wishes (a surprise birthday bash was organised within 2 hours of them knowing we had a birthday toddler in our family group). The staff, services, scenery, rooms, food, everything... 5***** Simba lodge group, you've won our heart and earned loyal patrons for life.
