Shindzela is the real bush camp safrai experience. The tented and unfenced camp means that you are genuely close to nature. Animals are free to wander through the camp which made for some amazing close-up elephant sightings.
Dave, Laura, Mike, Gerty and Melita work tirelessly to ensure that the guests get the most from their stay. They create an informal and relaxed atmosphere. Their knowledge of the flora and fauna in the game reserve is impressive and matched by their genuine passion for the animals and environent in which they work. Nothing is too much trouble.
The camp is comfortable, not luxurious (although the plunge pool felt divine in the heat). If you are seeking an authentic bush experience then look no further.
- 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
