Serengeti Simba Lodge: Awe-inspiring views and wildlife year-round
Serengeti Simba Lodge is perched on a small hill (kopjie) with views out over the surrounding Serengeti National Park Ecosystem from almost every vantage point and room.
The wildlife seen throughout the year includes; lion, buffalo, cheetah, leopard, giraffe, elephant, bushbuck, zebra, gazelle and hartebeest, to mention a few. Birdlife around the lodge and surrounding bushveld are also exceptional year-round (with summer being the peak for birding).
A smallish lodge that offers guests comfortable rustic accommodation in a magnificent location, all at the right price.
The annual migration passes the lodge twice a year, around June-July and again in October. Should one be interested in these dates, one needs to book early for a safari at Serengeti Simba Lodge.
