I must admit I had very high expectations for Shindzela and every one of them was met. The overall experience was even better as we had friends from Italy join us and they apparently had a very enjoyable experience as well. We cannot really fault a single aspect of our stay. From the moment we arrived, meals and the quality of our guide Sam who deserves special mention as he was tasked with hauling our group around on his own while the other guide had help in the form of a tracker. His knowledge and ability to track from a moving vehicle was nothing short of astounding. The game viewing was fantastic and even though we did not get the big five in this trip we did see lots of Buffalo, Elephant, some lion and a host of other wildlife and birds. The food and service was impeccable. They manage all this out in the bush with little electricity. Kudo's to Andre and Eugene the owners for the job on the solar setup they have and even some wireless in the communal are. What a great time thanks Shindzela team!
- 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
