Recently renovated after being closed,new fridge and kitchen utensils. Staff very friendly, helpful well stocked shop. The restaurant was closed but looked like it was about to reopen. Peaceful atmosphere and drives quieter than in the south. You could see how devastating the floods had been, huge trees down and swept down the river.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Shingwedzi lies in the northern part of the Kruger National Park in the heart of Mopane country. A scenic game drive along the Shingwedzi River in a southeasterly direction towards the Kanniedood Dam is one of the most rewarding drives in the Park. Waterbuck, nyala, kudu and elephant are often seen here and the bird life is prolific. Staying overnight at Shingwedzi is an experience that will last a lifetime. It is a rustic camp that still carries the essence of the bush and is untouched by modern technology. Experience magical evenings where the accommodation is arranged in two separate circles and the glow emanating from braai (barbecue) stands cast a tranquil spell. ... more less
