14 years ago I experienced a tented bush camp with my wife for the first time and immediately I was hooked. The origional camp, which too bordered the Kruger National Park, closed about 10 years ago to make way for one of those expensive, over the top lodges, with air-con and a library!!!. Since then, we have searched for something to remind us of those 'good old days'. Well, in Shindzela we certainly found it. David, the owner manager is a wonderful host who loves the bush and all it has to offer. He has a vast knowledge of the flora and fauna around him and always goes the extra mile to make your visit truly wonderful. Backed up by a great team including Laura in the office and Gertie in the kitchen (superb food!!!) you are guaranteed an experience you will not forget!! We've had 2 stays at Shindzela and will will continue to return as long as it is there!!!!
- 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
