Shindzela is a fantastic authentic bush camp and exceeded our expectations that had been set very high due to great reviews. Gertie, Melita, Mike, Sam, Isaacs and Dave really went out of their way to ensure that we had a fabulous stay. Nothing is too much trouble and the simple aproach to making the holiday a memorable one works, and works well. Our original encounter with a herd of elephants was a great start to our stay, but to walk to within 5 metres of a rhino takes some beating as does sitting in the Jeep 5 metres from 3 male lions. But the final memory of seeing elephants walking through the camp, eating the grass at the shower of tent 6, will linger for a long time. As a South African living in the UK I cannot wait to return to Shinzela and sincerely hope anyone reading this review takes my advice and books immmediately. You will LOVE it.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Shindzela is an authentic tented bush camp situated in the Timbavati Private Nature Reserve, greater Kruger National Park. The camp accommodates a maximum of 16 guests and is unfenced, making it very much part of the wilderness. Shindzela is not built by an award winning architect, nor is it furnished by an interior designer. What you will find though, is a comfy bed, freshly laundered linen, and décor from local crafters and artists. Shindzela is a comfortable/rustic tented bush camp, where you can relax, enjoy our warm hospitality and immerse yourself in the African wilderness. We love our informal, relaxed atmosphere. Each safari tent is built on wooden decks, and has their own en-suite shower/toilet and hand basin. The camp also has a swimming pool and overlooks our little watering hole, from where you can watch animals come down to drink. ... more less
