    “Loved it”

    We visited on our honeymoon back in April and had the most incredible time! Everything from start to finish was amazing! We got greeted and taken to our tent which overlooked the river where we watched and heard the hippos! We then began our first game drive and we were lucky enough to see the wild dogs first! We got back from our game drive greeted with hot towels before taken back to your tent to freshen up for dinner/breakfast depending on which one! Andrew was our butler and we just loved him! He couldn’t do enough for us! We were lucky enough to see the big 5 during our stay – thank you, Jimmy and Vincent! All the little touches really made this place, the welcome letter, the wake-up calls, the turndown of our rooms to arrive back to after the afternoon game drive! Then on our final night a bath ready for us with petals and champagne! It really is spectacular and would highly recommend staying we were really sad to leave! Thanks all for looking after us so well, we will keep the memories forever!

    “Stunning Lodge”

    An amazing lodge with stunning views. The very luxurious tented property, attentive staff and wonderful food. Our guide Shaddy and tracker Daniel were wonderful, they worked very hard to spot the big 5 which we managed and even found us a family of wild dogs with 9 puppies – a very memorable experience for me. Within 10 minutes we had spotted a leopard in a tree with the remains of an Impala and a Hyena waiting patiently underneath for any remains. The Hyena cubs were also a star attraction for us. Thanks for making our first safari so memorable.

    “Life Changing”

    It has it all. All the animals that you ever dreamed of, the best staff you can imagine, wonderful rooms and great quality food and drinks. This is an absolutely world-class standard place to see all the animals and the guides are amazingly helpful and give you many interesting facts about the animals in the area. We managed to see the big 5 in 2 days. I highly recommend this place and would return in a heartbeat.

    “Amazing place, wonderful people!”

    We spent 5 days in the Simbavati Hilltop Lodge during our honeymoon. Our stay was absolutely amazing. The tents are comfortable and you have a lot of privacy. We had 2 games drive per day with our cool guide Joe and our tracker Tabor (sorry if I got it wrong!). We saw all the big 5, but our encounter with lions was pretty fast, so yeah… we need to go back.
    Amazing staff, Aubrey and Andrew made our time there even better, amazing food from breakfast to dinner.
    We wish to go back one day.
