About Trails Camp

Simbavati Trails Camp is Simbavati’s luxury-but-back-to-basics walking trails camp. Located in a secluded area of the Timbavati, Simbavati Trails Camp borders an unspoilt wilderness area of 11, 000 hectares in the Kruger National Park.

The camp offers 4 en-suite Meru-style safari tents and hosts a maximum of 8 guests. Bucket showers are filled on demand with warm water, hearty meals are prepared over an open fire by an expert cook, there is no electricity, nor cellphone reception. Just you, in the heart of an untamed African wildlife wonderland.

Days start with a +/- 3 hour walk at a leisurely pace with an armed specialist guide. Experiencing the bush on foot is entirely different from being on a safari vehicle, enabling you to completely immerse yourself in the mesmerising sights, sounds and smells of the African bush. Stops for snacks and drinks tide you over until a tasty brunch is prepared back at the camp.

After some ‘me’ time spent snoozing or reading outside your tent, a savoury and sweet ‘tea’ is prepared before another +/-3 hour walk at the end of the afternoon, ending at a viewpoint to
enjoy an unforgettable African sunset. A short drive will bring you back to camp with time to freshen up before dinner around the campfire.

Simbavati Trails Camp does not accommodate children under 16 years’ old unfortunately.

To enjoy the full walking trail experience, a 3-night stay is recommended.
