Shingwedzi is one of the most isolated camps in the Kruger National Park. It is far from any entrance gate and almost a full day's drive from Johannesburg. As a result, it is a very quiet camp with a relaxing atmosphere. Shingwedzi is located on the bank of the Shingwedzi River, but the river view is unfortunately not nearly as good as that of Letaba or Lower Sabie, for example.
Shingwedzi does, however, have a wonderful campsite that's large, flat, has ample shade and is located next to the swimming pool. There is also a great variety of bungalows to choose from.
Birdwatchers flock to Shingwedzi from all over in search of special species, such as the thrush nightingale and collared palm-thrush, which have been spotted in camp. More common species like fork-tailed drongos, mourning doves and black flycatchers are seen throughout the camp.
