Shindzela Tented Safari Camp offers guests an old fashioned African wildlife safari, in an unfenced wilderness environment.
Situated in a private concession area of the Timbavati Reserve, and open to the Kruger National Park, Shindzela Walking Safaris offers guests a chance to explore the African bush on foot. The Timbavati Reserve is home to all of the Big Five animals, as well as a host of other mammal and bird species. All walking safaris are led by an armed safari guide, and expert tracker.
The camp hosts a maximum of 12 guests, with accommodation in safari tents, set on wooden decks. Outdoor, shared bathrooms offer showers with hot & cold water and modern flush toilets. Enjoy tasty home made meals, made from the freshest seasonal produce. Activities centre on walking safaris, but we also include game drives (day & night) in open safari vehicles.
We have no power in camp: instead we use solar power, gas and candles. The camp accommodates just 12 guests, and offers walking safaris, and both day and night game drives in open 4 wheel drive vehicles. The camp has an informal, relaxed atmosphere, and is alive with warm African hospitality.
Shindzela is a simple but comfortable bush camp. Accommodation is in twin bed safari canvas tents, set on wooden platforms. Each tent has a wooden entrance door, adjustable canvas flaps for windows, and mesh to keep insects out. Tents are equipped with a solar light, all bedding, towels and a torch. Separate, shared ablutions are built from reeds, thatch and wood. Each “bathroom” features a shower with running hot and cold water and a modern flush toilet.
At Shindzela, if you have an interest in walking safaris, you are able to participate in a specialized wildlife walking safari, where you can explore the African wilderness on foot. Our walking safaris are led by armed and experienced walking safari guides. We offer you a true walking safari in a “Big Five” game viewing area.
All safari activities are conducted in the early mornings and late afternoons. Your safari begins at dawn, and you return to camp mid morning. Spend the rest of the day relaxing in camp. In the afternoon, depending on the animal movements in the area, your guide may suggest a game drive and short walk, followed by sundowners and a night safari game drive. Our safari timetable is generally planned around the movements of the game in the area – this allows us to be flexible, and to maximize your safari experience
