Simbavati Hilltop Lodge

 Timbavati Game Reserve Big 5 Safari

Simbavati Hilltop Lodge,  a romantic safari escape in the Timbavati Game Reserve

Hilltop Lodge is located in the premier Big 5 Timbavati Game Reserve, part of the Greater Kruger and sharing unfenced borders. A perfect romantic safari escape with just 11 elegant tented suites positioned on a hill overlooking a riverbed.

The guest accommodation at Hilltop Lodge comprises eight pavailion-style safari suites, spaced around a hill to ensure privacy while maintaining a village feel. Each unit consists of a wooden deck supporting two canvas tents, one for the bedroom and one for the bathroom. The luxury tents feature a inside and outside shower and a large outside deck with a beautiful day bed.

Game Drives in the early morning and evening  ensure game viewing when the animals are most active.  Currently there are over 40 mammal species in the Timbavati Game Reserve including the Big 5 of Lion, Leopard, Rhino, Buffalo and Elephant as well as 360 species of bird life. There are no fences between the Timbavati  Reserve and the vast Kruger National Park, giving game more than 20 000km² to roam freely.

Meals at the lodge are served in the open air boma and there is also a onsite wellness spa .After your morning game drive, slip into the infinity pool, with its views all the way to the foothills of the Drakensberg.

We can highly recommend Simbavati Hilltop for a special romantic escape or that special occasion.
