Shindzela Tented Safari Camp

Explore the Wild: Discover the Beauty of the Kruger National Park


Established in 2009 as a mere walking trails camp, consisting out of small bow tents, Shindzela has grown into the wonderful tented product that is before you. Situated within the Timbavati Private Nature Reserve in the Greater Kruger National Park in South Africa, Shindzela offers guests an authentic African wildlife experience.

The eco-friendly (solar-powered) camp is the perfect place where one can feel part of the bush. We are passionate about conservation and our staff strive to make guests feel right at home. Our aim is to provide an enjoyable and fulfilling experience in an exceptional wilderness area.

What to Expect

Shindzela, named after the honey badger in the Shangaan language, is an unfenced tented camp within the world-renowned Timbavati Private Game Reserve forming part of the Greater Kruger National Park in South Africa.

Our safari style tents are situated under thatch (grass roof) structures and can be made up in either twin or double-bedded accommodation. Enjoy your morning coffee on your wooden deck or freshen up in your semi open en-suite bathroom (shower, W.C. and hand-basin)

We strive to offer an affordable wildlife safari during which you can explore the African wilderness on game drives in open 4×4 vehicles (don’t forget your sunscreen) and/or on foot during a walking safari. Our safari activities are conducted by professional, knowledgeable and fully qualified guides.
