Shingwedzi lies in the northern part of the Kruger National Park in the heart of mopane country. It is a rustic camp that still captures the essence of the surrounding bush and is untouched by modern technology. Guests can choose from a range of different accommodation types to suit their needs. These include rustic huts, air-conditioned bungalows of varying sizes, a 4-bed cottage and the luxury Rentmeester Guest House. There is also plenty to see and do at Shingwedzi. A scenic game drive along the Shingwedzi River in a south-easterly 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. Visit the Ntishivana and Kanniedood Bird Hides nearby, enjoy wildlife films on a big screen, or book your breakfast/barbecue out in the bush. Experience magical evenings where the accommodation is arranged in two separate circles and the glow emanating from braai (barbecue) stands cast a tranquil spell. Staying overnight at Shingwedzi is an experience that will last a lifetime.
