Charming & Intimate Simbavati Amani is a charming, intimate safari villa in the peaceful heart of the Klaserie Private Nature Reserve, perfect for couples or exclusive use. Though there are only four luxury suites within the homestead, a magnificent double volume sitting room, mezzanine library area, interactive kitchen and bar mean there is generous space to relax. Warm evenings are spent socializing around the fire-pit, marvelling at the star-studded sky whilst animal calls echo through the darkness. Daytime means morning and evening guided game drives in the unfenced reserve, a part of the Greater Kruger and home to all the Big Five. The gardens offer a tranquil oasis, shaded by mature trees. They flow down to a secluded entertaining area with infinity pool, terrace, alfresco bar and campfire. All overlooking a rewarding and flood-lit waterhole. Simbavati Amani can be taken on an exclusive use basis to create your own private bush retreat.

Spent New Years at Simbavati Amani with our family group of 6. We had a fantastic time. Our guide, JV, was very knowledgeable, a great spotter and had a great sense of humour. You are lucky to get him as your guide if you stay here.
Mama Kate was our chef during our stay. She is a wonderful cook and went out of her way to make gluten free options for our daughter with celiac disease.

When guests are relaxing or meditating at the pool, it would be more enjoyable if staff is not enthusiastically busy doing stocktaking at the bar next to the pool, or catching up on the phone or TikTok posts for 1,5 hours.

We paid a fair amount for our stay and were rather unpleasantly surprised with 4 named envelopes in our room on our last day in which we could put our tips. It made ‘optional tipping’ feel obligatory and uncomfortable, and makes us wonder if the staff is paid a living wage or if they actually need tips to make a living…

A wonderful place to experience the African safari in an exclusive and familiar lodge. Game drives in the morning and in the afternoon. The Big 5 and much more. Private Water pools attracting kudus, impalas, zebras, baboons, elephants, professional, passionate and kind staff.

What a wonderful place! The whole staff so gentle: the buttler Sipho, the cook Tebogo, the guide Lioné and the managers Zana and Grant. The hotel is perfect to do the game drives! Thank you so much! I intend to visit them again with my whole family in a near future.

Our absolute favorite - up, close and personal. Guests feel like family members invited to stay.
Warm and professional service with lots of attention and laughter from Sipho, the butler, and Tebogo, the cook.
Outstandingly knowledgeable and enthusiastic guide Charlie making you appreciate not only the Big5 and wild dogs but also the trees, insects, birds and how it all fits together.
Couldn’t have been better, left heartbroken and in tears after 3 nights
