About Simbavati Trails Camp

Simbavati Trails Camp is a truly unique experience, offering a luxury-yet-back-to-basics walking trails camp located in a secluded area of the Timbavati Game Reserve in the Greater Kruger region. A stay here is all about immersive safari walks with expert guides, where guests will be able to explore an unspoiled, unfenced wildlife area home to spectacular African landscapes, elusive species, and the Big Five.

With only four tents sleeping up to eight guests at a time, Simbavati Trails Camp is intimate and simple in design yet comfortable. The camp has no WiFi or cell phone reception, allowing guests to fully connect with nature in the heart of the bushveld. Each tent features comfortable beds, en suite bathrooms, and a private shaded outdoor area with seating, while the main area is host to a swimming pool an boma for delicious meals prepared over an open fire by an expert cook.

Simbavati Trails Camp 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. 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.

The Timbavati is a premier wildlife viewing destination for those hoping to witness the Big Five without the crowds of some of the bigger reserves. Located in a secluded area of the reserve, Simbavati Trails Camp is an authentic, back-to-basics tented safari experience for those looking to fully immerse themselves in the magic of the African bush.

Please note: The camp is only operational from March to November during cool weather.
