As a mother daughter travelling together Simbavati River Lodge was ideal for seeing the big 5 and so much more. To start our "deluxe tent" gave glamping a whole new meaning. So well appointed and clean and animals literally at your back door (or watching while you took an outside shower). The morning and afternoon safaris were amazing and we couldn't have asked for a better guide in Kyle and tracker in Daniel. Their knowledge of the animals and birds was outstanding not to mention the great driving skills exhibited when a lone Bull elephant got a bit grumpy whilst we were having morning tea and had to beat a hasty retreat
The staff at the lodge were outstanding Melody on the front desk so welcoming ,Bishop in the restaurant the happiest person ever, the girls in the spa,the barman poured the best gin and dry lemon EVERYONE was exceptional. Put this place on your bucket list.
