“Camp is tidy and sufficient”
Reviewed November 7, 2011

This park is sufficient if you need a tidy kept place to stay over at.

Rooms were tidy and well kept. No green grass outside. Mopanie trees provide shade.

The swimming pool is still kept but age is starting to show.

Main reception area is clean. The smell of bat dung is very evident when under the thatch roof.

Reviewed June 4, 2009

We stayed in a clean, spacious and functional chalet with a much appreciated double bed. We were able to eat outside in the retaurant overlooking a floodlit waterhole (dry when we were there). The food was fine and they were able to customise a veggie option for us (jacket potato). Not the height of luxury but recommended as a base to see some of the more northerly parts of Kruger.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Shingwedzi lies in the northern part of the Kruger National Park in the heart of Mopane country. A scenic game drive along the Shingwedzi River in a southeasterly direction towards the Kanniedood Dam is one of the most rewarding drives in the Park. Waterbuck, nyala, kudu and elephant are often seen here and the bird life is prolific. Staying overnight at Shingwedzi is an experience that will last a lifetime. It is a rustic camp that still carries the essence of the bush and is untouched by modern technology. Experience magical evenings where the accommodation is arranged in two separate circles and the glow emanating from braai (barbecue) stands cast a tranquil spell. ... more   less
