I stayed at Shindzela for 3 days with my two teenage daughters and we were completely unprepared for such an amazing experience. Our guides Peter and Monica we obviously very experienced in taking tours and were able to generate amazing wildlife interactions for us. We saw several leopards, rhino on a walking tour (which is a must) plenty of elephant, buffalo, lions and other animals as well as a number of additions to my bird list. If you ask questions they always have an answer.
The accommodation was very comfortable - the hot water bottle a great surprise on the first cold night in July - and the food excellent. This is an authentic comfortable camp to visit which families will enjoy without the pretension of some of the more upmarket venues.
Watched zebra and impala at the waterhole as we relaxed in front of our tent; listened to various night time visitors from inside our tent!.
Thank you for a memorable holiday.
- 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
