Al Simhara (السمهرة) is a pre-made destination sub-world that was introduced in The Sims 3: World Adventures along with Shang Simla and Champs Les Sims.

Al Simhara is an ancient land built against a river, full of magic and mystery. It is a land of mummies, pyramids, and crocodiles. It is found in Egypt and features activities and items drawn from Egyptian culture. The name is a reference to the Sahara Desert of Egypt. This town features fully explorable tombs and hidden tombs, including famous Egyptian landmarks such as the Pyramids, the Sphinx, and Temple of Queen Hatshepsut. Sims can explore these landmark tombs, thereby undertaking adventures. The company MorcuCorp features strongly in these adventures. It is an excellent subhood for Sims to improve their Photography skill. There are numerous pre-made families in Al Simhara, although they all, unfortunately, lack description texts and money. A trip to Al Simhara costs §1600 for one Sim and §1000 for each additional Sim.

Comparisons with Giza[]

While Al Simhara is based on the real world location Giza, Egypt, there are several differences mostly due to limiations on world size and to add more tombs for adventure:

  • Abu Simbel, Temple of Queen Hatshepsut, and Ruins of Karnak are not located within Giza.
  • The Great Pyramid is the northernmost of the Pyramids of Giza in the real world. In game, it is between the two smaller pyramids.
  • Al Simhara is located next to a sea, Giza is located 180 km south of the Mediterranean Sea.
  • Al Simhara has a small village near the pyramids while Giza is a large city (3rd largest city in Egypt) that extends near the pyramids.
  • There is no real world counterpart to The Pyramid of the Sky.
  • The Great Sphinx in the real world is fully solid (no tomb inside). However, it is rumored to contain an ancient library known as Hall of Records under the Sphinx, its existance is uncertain.
  • There are only the Great Pyramids Al Simhara, while the Giza Necropolis there are smaller pyramids along with the three.

Al Simhara contains a variety of tomb lots as well as tomb puzzles on non-tomb lots. Each major tomb in Al Simhara has a distinct relic named after it.




All Sims among these families have the Egyptian Culture hidden trait. NPCs generated in Al Simhara do not have this trait, instead they have the hidden trait connected to their job (e.g. Pizza Appreciator for Pizza Delivery), and other Sims such as Explorers have no hidden traits at all.
