Located in the legendary Kruger National Park in South Africa, Camp Shawu offers a classic African safari experience. This intimate camp is found in a 15 000-hectare private concession within the Kruger, and is set overlooking the Mpanamana Dam. The camp offers wonderful views over the dam, and guests can enjoy the unique sight of animals coming to the dam to drink. The camp’s 5 spacious rooms are all well-appointed, and feature en-suite bathroom facilities, as well as outdoor showers for a thrilling experience. Spend time in between game drives relaxing in your room’s luxurious free-standing ball-and-claw bath, or out on the private deck overlooking the dam. There is a splash pool where guests can take a refreshing dip, and delicious meals are served either indoors or outdoors. Game drives take places in the mornings and afternoons, and are led by expert guides, providing the opportunity to encounter the Kruger’s incredible diversity of wildlife species.
