When I started going on safaris the accommodations weighed heavily and for this reason I ignored the common fact in South Africa about Mala Mala's legendary gameviewing statistics.I visited 10 lodges in the SSGR before finally pulling the trigger on Mala Mala for a two night stay.I ended up staying five nights after frantic calls to reservations in JHB to extend my stay.Well the rest is history as I've paid several visits since then.This place is truly special.

To illustrate my point:

Have a look at Lion Sands Ivory Lodge at and then have a look at Mala Mala at camp)
on the net.

99% of people will choose Lion Sands on appearance and this is why I ignored all the ''best gameviewing'' calls of Mala Mala years ago.

Will you see the big five at Simbambili-absolutely.Will you enjoy Simbambili-absolutely...Will you know what you missed at Mala Mala,not until you pay your first visit.You will then become part of a group of return visitors second to none in the SSGR.

I don't know any of the current guides at Simbambili as Jaco left in December.

Enjoy your trip to South Africa and start saving up as I know you will return to Africa soon.
