Shindzela Tented Safari Camp

Found in: Bushveld, Kruger National Park, Limpopo, Lodges, Safari Lodges

Shindzela (named after the Honey badger in the African Shangaan language) is an authentic tented Safari camp set on wooden decks each with their own en-suite shower, toilet and hand basin. Shindzela Tented Safari Camp is situated in the Timbavati Private Game Reserve, part of the greater Kruger National Park, South Africa.

It is from here that Shindzela brings you an affordable wildlife safari, where you can explore the African wilderness on game drives in open 4×4 safari vehicles and on foot during our walking safaris. Safari activities are conducted by professional and knowledgeable safari guides. The camp has an informal, relaxed atmosphere, and is alive with warm African hospitality.

Shindzela offers guests a greater Kruger wildlife safari, in an unfenced wilderness environment. We have no power: instead we use solar powered lights, gas geysers and candles. We are undisturbed by some of the modern conveniences such as television and telephones, preferring to immerse ourselves in the African wilderness. Shindzela also has a swimming pool in camp where guests can relax and overlook our small watering hole.

The camp accommodates just 16 guests, and offers both walking safaris, and game drives twice daily.

Shindzela Tented Safari Camp Accommodation Shindzela is a comfortable tented bush camp, set on the banks of a dry riverbed, facing a small watering hole. We offer an authentic African safari experience in an unfenced, private and natural wilderness environment. Our Safari Tents can either be made up in twin or double bed accommodation, set on wooden platforms.

Each tent has a wooden entrance door, adjustable canvas flaps for windows, and mesh to keep insects out. Each tent has a thatch (grass) roof and porch, designed to keep the tents cool in summer. Tents have solar lighting, and are equipped with all bedding, mosquito net and towels. Each Safari tent has got an en-suite bathroom that is made from reeds/wood and feature’s a shower (hot and cold water), hand basin and flush toilet.

The general bush camp area encompasses of a covered (thatch/grass roof) safari style dining area & lounge, kitchen, staff accommodation and a central African fireplace - a perfect spot to relive safari experiences around the fire. Your African safari is hosted by a guide and tracker, and the camp is owner managed.

We do operate a bar, where guests can ask their guide/tracker for a drink, all our non-alcoholic drinks are included in your nightly rate, and all alcoholic drinks can be settled in cash/credit card (Visa or MasterCard only) at camp upon check out. We have deliberately decided to keep the camp undeveloped, so as to better blend in to the environment, and offer guests an undisturbed wilderness experience. Shindzela is situated in a private concession area within the Timbavati Reserve - this means we are able to offer our guests a number of distinct advantages for their wildlife safari:

  • We are able to offer true walking safaris in a Big Five Reserve
  • The camp is unfenced, making it very much part of the wilderness
  • We can stay out later on activities, including night drives and spend more time at each sighting
  • We are permitted to drive off road into the bush in search of predators and / or unusual sightings
