This was a no-frills visit to a beautiful camp. Staff went out of their way to be friendly and helpful, and the guides and trackers were first-class. Meals were hearty and informal and we soon became friends with fellow guests around the table. What a pity we could not have a proper braai around the fire due to unexpected showers! Our room was spotless and comfortable, sitting on the verandah for a quiet read was as magical as going on a game drive. Game drives were fun and so informative with Johan trying to teach us to identify numerous bird species. His knowledge is astonishing and his sense of humour utterly refreshing. However, he is by no means a show-off ranger trying to impress guests. Our gifted tracker literally sniffed out lions from under the undergrowth. The early morning bush walk was a memorable experience. What's not to love?
- 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
