Simba Sleep Mattress

May 23, 2018


I love my bed! I love it because I know that no matter what at the end of the day it’s going to be there for me with no complaints, no requests, no long tales about how the guy at the grocery store who took so long to exchange a low-fat milk for full cream. Yes, I know that mattresses can’t talk, all I’m trying to say is that your mattress is kind of like a silent best friend that is always there for you no matter what.

So this post is going to be a bit out of the ordinary for me because it’s all about a brand new mattress brand called Simba Sleep that has been bought into South Africa by Takealot and that comes delivered to your front door literally in a box. Yip, in a full-on box which you then open up, take out and watch unroll, as if like magic into a fully fledged dual spring, memory foam mattress that has a combination of 2,500 conical pocket springs! It was pretty amazing watching this mattress come to life and go from really thin to literally a full on 5-layer sleep-inducing machine.

When the guys from Simba first contacted me I was intrigued by this concept, then they mentioned that they would like to send me one to try out for myself and if I liked it I could have another one for one of you guys! I liked that idea a lot, so I jumped onboard.

My new Simba mattress arrived about a week ago, we unboxed it, popped it onto our bed and haven’t looked back since. I mean I’m going to be honest and say that when we first swapped it with our current mattress I was a bit sceptical, I loved our old one, it was comfy and familiar but it took one night for me to change my tune and welcome my new best friend with open arms. I think what I like the most about it is the memory foam factor, so when Shane turns over or gets out of bed I feel absolutely nothing, no movement or disruption. It’s pretty awesome!

This very unique concept from the UK is only available in South Africa from Takealot and like I  mentioned above, they’re so amped about it that they’re giving me THREE prizes to give away to you guys to celebrate its arrival.


1 x Simba Sleep single mattress

2 x R500 Takealot vouchers (for the followers that I draw in 2nd and 3rd position)

    It looks amazing I’ve heard that it helps relieves back ache. I’m 41 and my back is starting to feel all the bumps in my bed. I read that you dont feel the movement. I would love this to keep me fresh and perky from a good night’s rest.

    I would love one for me.. But clearly won’t fit my bunch in a single Mattress. Haven’t had a good night sleep in 4 years.. Have barely shared a bed with my husband as kids have taken over our bed..
    Maybe with a new super comfy mattress, my kids might choose to migrate.. If fails, I might choose the single bed just for a few hours!

    Oh how lucky you are…peaceful sleep is everything!! With a 1 and a 4 year old I don’t get much of that…but hey…only 18 more years….haha!
