This was the very first time we had stayed at a Lodge within a national park and our first impressions were "wow". Rooms were very large and were accessed by an elevated wooden walkway from the main reception building. Depending on your room number, the walk could take 3-4 minutes but if you are lucky (as we were), you could... More

The rooms in the lodge were excellent and the staff extremely accommodating and assisted us with a difficult menu requirement for one young guest. The game drives were as good as any that we have been on and we saw all. In general well run lodge however I think that management needs some further training for a lodge of this... More

Shishangeni private lodge has provided us with a customized experience. Game drives before sunrise and at dawn provide you with the best opportunity to see the big five and more. The lodge is located close to the Kruger southern border crocodile river, which is another guarantee animals flock together, especially during dry season. Added advantage is that it is close...

My first impression was not necessarily good, but I must admit that Shishangeni offers an awesome experience of Kruger National Park at a very competitive price. Definitely worth visiting!! Consider the 2 camps they offer - it's kind off more exclusive and remote with great views and atmosphere.

We had such a great time, the staff is friendly and helpful and the lodge is beautiful...the game drive experience was awesome, we got up close and personal with nature, led by an insightful driver. I would totally recommend this lodge for a relaxing getaway in the splendour of nature.

I had never been to such a game drive experience before and so I was so looking forward to expect the unexpected...and it was worth all the effort... while there was so much I had heard on seeing the Big 5, to me it was that feeling of oneness with nature I loved the most...and yes, going for those game...

What an amazing place! Roomy villas with a king size bed, large outdoor shower - strange feeling showering in the open looking out onto the bush at 5am. Had been told the food would be basic but there was plenty of choice at all meals. Watch out for the monkeys trying to steal your food if you eat on the... More

Our first time in Kruger and for sure not our last time. We saw so many animals and our excellent guide Nordic gave us such an amazing wildlife experience and was so funny as well. So a very big thanks to Nordic first of all. Also the rest of the hotel staff was extremely helpful and friendly at all time.... More
