About Shingwedzi Rest Camp Kruger National Park SANParks

ACTIVITIES CAN NOW BE BOOKED! Choose an activity under Room Types when requesting your quote!

Shingwedzi lies in the northern part of the Kruger National Park in the heart of Mopane country.

Staying overnight at Shingwedzi is an experience that will last a lifetime. Accommodation is at a rustic camp that still carries the essence of the bush, untouched by modern technology.

Experience magical evenings where accommodation is arranged in two separate circles and the glow from the braai stands cast a tranquil spell.

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 Kruger National Park. Waterbuck, nyala, kudu and elephant are often seen here and the bird life is prolific.

Please note the rates displayed are subject to the number of adults as well as children staying, hence we advise guests to request the appropriate tariffs.

For a small rest camp in the middle of nowhere this rest camp is a very nice place to stop while in the park. The restaurant area is lovely, located on the river where you can watch the animals while eating a nice meal. The accommodation was nice, clean and comfortable with each cabin having their own braai area. As field guides ourselves we decided to go on a night drive to try and see some of the nocturnal animals in the area, I have to say though there were some major discrepancies in the guides knowledge and skill. I do not want to seem cruel but I think some major study is needed by the...

Game to be seen all around the camp. Bird watching is special experience in this camp. Just sit outside the Restaurant and watch them fly all around you. The staff we met were all very helpful. Our 3 days at this camp have been a plessure.
