About Simbavati Homestead

Located in the heart of the Klaserie Private Nature Reserve in the Greater Kruger region, Simbavati Homestead is an intimate self-catered safari offering an exclusive experience. The homestead is a modern African farmhouse and has been designed with friends and families in mind, with a contemporary style and great connection with the bush through expansive stoeps and terraces for soaking up the surrounds.

Simbavati Homestead features five bedrooms, all of which have king-sized beds (that can be changed to twin). Two are en suite with one having a private balcony, while the others offer shared bathrooms. The villa also boasts a swimming pool, small boma, covered patio, open plan lounge and a dining area - ensuring there is plenty of space for everyone to gather and enjoy the peaceful setting.

Simbavati Homestead Setting

Considered one of the largest and oldest safari areas in South Africa, the Greater Kruger region is made up of Kruger National Park, Sabi Sands, Timbavati Game Reserve, as well as the surrounding private game reserves (such as Klaserie). The entire area is one of the best places to view free-roaming game, experience guided walks and explore some of the wildest areas in the country.

Klaserie Private Nature Reserve is home to a magnificent wildlife population, including the Big Five, plentiful plains game and avid birdlife. Guests of Simbavati Homestead will have ample opportunity to explore all the natural beauty of the area with twice-daily game drives and from the comfort of the lodge overlooking the waterhole.

  • Slice of paradise!

    The house was beautiful and spacious. It really was a slice of paradise in the bush. Our game drives were wonderful and our private view and waterhole offered some incredible sightings while we played in the pool, including elephant, giraffe, hyenas, waterbuck etc.
