Wild Experiences, untouched by modern distractions..
Timbavati Reserve, Greater Kruger
Shindzela is a tented safari camp, set in a traversing area within the Timbavati Private Nature Reserve, part of the Greater Kruger National Park, South Africa. Offering guests an old fashioned Kruger safari, you can enjoy an exciting wildlife safari in an unfenced wilderness environment.
The camp has no power – instead they make use of solar lights and gas energy.
Undisturbed by modern conveniences such as television and cell phones, preferring to immerse the guests in the African Wilderness - there is also a waterhole in front of camp to view.
Shindzela tented safari camp provides guests with a true safari experience in a private game reserve – an ideal way to make the most of your Kruger safari holiday. Shindzela is your home whilst on your safari!
They pride themselves on offering a relaxed, informal atmosphere; a trademark of genuine South African hospitality. Shindzela has a swimming pool in camp, and the camp overlooks a waterhole from where you can watch animals come down to drink – particularly in the drier months of the year.
Shindzela is a small tented wilderness camp, and hosts a maximum of 16 guests. Accommodation is in twin or double bed safari tents, each set under thatch tops and on wooden decks. Shindzela focuses on game drives in open 4x4 vehicles (day & night drives), and offer optional walking safaris.
The Kruger safari game drives place an emphasis on understanding the wild environment, and tracking and viewing animals in their natural surroundings - they are able to drive off road in search of African predators and Big Five animals.
In an effort to offer an affordable safari in South Africa, Shindzela has deliberately chosen to forego some of the features that add to the costs of running a safari camp: They don’t have an African spa… they think that fresh air and the sights and sounds of the bush constitute a spa experience second to none.. They don’t have a high staff / guest ratio: If you fancy some tea or coffee, please help yourself at the tea station in the dining room. The menus don’t feature dishes with culinary terms like “jus”, “compote” or “lightly seared”. The meals are tasty and homemade, with lots of fresh fruit, vegetables and salads. Enjoy a traditional South African braai (BBQ) with freshly baked safari bread, or a potjie (stew), cooked slowly over the fire.
The camp is not built by an award winning architect, nor is it furnished by an interior designer. What you will find at Shindzela Tented Camp is a comfy bed, freshly laundered linen, and décor from local crafters and artists.
Staying in an authentic canvas safari tent is reminiscence of an authentic safari from a bygone era, when Africa was still being explored and a safari was all about the sights, sounds and smells of Africa.
A safari under canvas brings this back and lets you experience Africa up close and personal. Shindzela Tented Camp is owner run and managed, and your African safari is hosted by your safari guides and trackers.
They have deliberately decided to keep Shindzela undeveloped, so as to better blend in to the environment, and offer guests an undisturbed wilderness experience.
