Simbavati Camp George

Overview

Refined bushveld retreat

    Bush walks

    A bush walk is a completely different way to experience the African wild. You gain a far greater sense of the landscape and how everything is interconnected, from the smaller things you'd miss on a drive with the chance of an encounter with one of the larger animals.

    Campfire dining

    Several times a week, dinner in the camps is a more hearty, campfire style meal served under the stars in a ‘boma’, a circular enclosure originally made from branches. The cosy, lantern-lit ambience recalls the early days of safari pioneers.

Community & Culture

Simbavati is passionate about their local community with a long-term goal to see the community around us thrive both economically and socially. For this reason, they have partnered with Eco Children, a local non-profit organisation focusing on improving education in the area.

Eco Children focuses on hands-on environmental education and whole school development and work with primary schools in the area. They help schools better their infrastructure and the overall teaching conditions, in order to improve education and empower learners to break the cycle of poverty they have been born into.
