The major advantage of staying in a private camp is the off road experiences in following the wildlife in their natural environment. Shindzela is at the lower cost but does not lessen the quality of the service offered by a small team of highly enthusiastic staff. Our car driver/guide was a native of the area who has worked in this field for some 16 years. The other guide / driver was a younger Africaan whose family has lived nearby for ages. We stayed in October - a great time to be here. The accommodation is basic but all you need. Food is typical; of the Africaan farmer style - a little rustic but very tasty and served in a huge quantity. Animals are everywhere and luck is whether you see lion or cheetah or hyena or leopard or black mama snakes etc. It is different to public park life and it is definitely worth it. Any couple or group of mature friends would enjoy themselves immensely satisfied at Shindzela. A true Kruger Park safari experience - one which the original founder had in mind for most tourists
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Shindzela is an authentic tented bush camp situated in the Timbavati Private Nature Reserve, greater Kruger National Park. The camp accommodates a maximum of 16 guests and is unfenced, making it very much part of the wilderness. Shindzela is not built by an award winning architect, nor is it furnished by an interior designer. What you will find though, is a comfy bed, freshly laundered linen, and décor from local crafters and artists. Shindzela is a comfortable/rustic tented bush camp, where you can relax, enjoy our warm hospitality and immerse yourself in the African wilderness. We love our informal, relaxed atmosphere. Each safari tent is built on wooden decks, and has their own en-suite shower/toilet and hand basin. The camp also has a swimming pool and overlooks our little watering hole, from where you can watch animals come down to drink. ... more less
