What a great place! This was the last camp we stayed in on a week long adventure through the Kruger. The accommodation is a bit dated, but the location and surrounds were fantastic. We stayed in No.15, right at the end of the camp. Our open air "lounge room" overlooked the watering hole with hippos and crocs right on the door step.
The gardens are well maintanied and the staff were super. Only issues relates to ablutions.We didn't have any hot water and there wasn't a shower.
Leopard right outside the camp, elephants, rhino etc. Waterbuck and impala grazing out the front of the waterhole. Just magic!
Other than that this is the camp for me from now on!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Shimuwini is a Shangaan word for "Place of the Baobab Tree". The camp is so named because the nearby Letaba River which fronts the cottages, is lined with these huge trees, one of them estimated to be between 2 000 and 3 000 years old. Shimuwini Bushveld Camp is the most modern of the bushveld camps, being completely rebuilt after the floods in 2 000. ... more less
