We stayed in a five-bed cottage. Three beds on the ground floor, two beds in the loft. Large bathroom and an outside kitchen with enough utensils. Basic, but well maintained and clean.
Around the cottage we saw many monkeys and bold birds who wanted to steal our food. The scenery around the restcamp is beautiful and serene. We had read on several websites that the amount of animals in the northern part of Kruger Park would be much lower than in the southern part, but we had a different experience. We saw many elepants, buffalos, giraffes, monkeys and many more.
- 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
