Shingwedzi Rest Camp has been beautifully repaired and refurbished and it was great to be back for 3 nights. The bungalow was excellent as always, the staff very efficient and the location and surrounds beautifully quiet. We've never seen so many elephants before, including lots of young and very young ones. Lovely birds and the Apple Leaf trees were in full flower - so much so that sometimes we drove over capets of pink and mauve.
- 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
