Klaserie Game Reserve

Simbavati Camp George Location Map

Simbavati Camp George offers an oasis of tranquillity within the wilds of the Klaserie Game Reserve in the Greater Kruger Park.

It is a classic safari escape, set alongside a dry riverbed and is the perfect mix of authentic tradition with a modern twist.  The convivial and art-filled living areas lead out to expansive terraces. Beyond lies the mature indigenous garden which naturally evoke a sense of tranquillity and relaxation. Enjoy the serenity of the many huge fever and baobab trees, read a book in the swing chair, or watch the game at the waterhole where animals come to drink through the day.

There are myriad of other ways to relax at Camp George too - lounge around the expansive swimming pool, enjoy a soothing massage at the safari spa or on your private deck, or indulge in a garden picnic under the beautiful, almost luminous fever trees. 

Game drives take place in the early morning and late afternoon when the animals are naturally most active. Your guide may be a keen photographer and will be conscious and considerate if your mission is to capture sightings on camera. Your mode of transport is an open-sided 4x4 game vehicle with 3 rows of comfortable bucket seats in tiers. You generally head out with a maximum of 8 guests. This offers safe, yet close wildlife encounters. Guests sit up high for the best 'spotting' of birds and animals. There are no sides to inhibit your views and you naturally feel more in tune with nature. In the summer month, a shade top is added to protect against the African sun, but in winter it is open to the skies for the best bird-viewing and for stargazing.

This intimate lodge comprises 8 luxury suites, each with its own private deck overlooking the dry riverbed.

Each suite has a beautiful and unique wall mural which adds a stunning touch of style to the room, and is elegantly furnished with beautiful indigenous wood furniture. There’s a large and indulgent bathroom a deep soaking tub, indoor and outdoor shower and separate toilet.

Two inter-leading units are available for families or friends travelling together.

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week, dinner in the camps is a more hearty, campfire style meal served under the stars in a boma, a circular enclosure originally made from branches.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 and the gentle flicker of lanterns, candle-light and a welcoming open fire truly conjures up what is magical about a safari.
