Our guide veon was the best foaled...

Shindzela was just great. Facilities were very good and comfortable; Small but well organized. We really felt part of the nature surrounding us. A water hole on the other side of the "dry" river (150-200m) attracts all kind of animals. During our safaris, we went off road many time and got really close to the animals. We were lucky and...

We stayed 3 nights at Shindzela. We loved it very much. Staff is customer oriented, food delicious, tents very comfortable and above everything, all safaris (2 per day) were unforgettable! We had the chance to see the Big Five and so much more! Thanks to everyone at Shindzela to make our dream comes true!

Having done a safari before this one I was going to be a bit picky. I had a perfect safari the first time and hoped this one would at least be somewhat comparable.

We came to Shindzela as a group of female friends and stayed for 3 nights. In that time we saw everything we wanted - and we all had a different "bucket list". The guides did a superb job of sorting out who wanted to see what and do their best to make sure it happened; and in our case it...

This was my first trip to South Africa and naturally I had to take the opportunity to see the wildlife.

We stayed 4 nights (in tents 7 & 8) and thoroughly enjoyed our time with the excellent staff, great drives (twice a day) and hearty food. The tents are comfy with very good beds.

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
