There are three safari destinations in the Kruger National Park, close to the Mozambique border, that form the Shishangeni Game Reserve. Situated on a 15,000 hectare private concession of the world-renowned Kruger National Park, this wildlife reserve has the deserved reputation for showcasing some of the finest game viewing on the continent. Enjoy early morning or late afternoon game drives in search of the ‘Big 5’ with an expert guide.
The look and feel at Shishangeni lodge is pure Africa. From the ornate wood carvings on the walls, and dark, hand-carved furniture, the patterned rugs on the floor and the wooden doors, the textures and warm colours of Africa are skillfully and tastefully blended to produce sophisticated interiors.
Below the wooden boardwalk connecting the rooms to the lounge, restaurant, and reception area, tiny bushbuck wander around freely. Mischievous Vervet monkeys swing in and out of trees in full view of the breakfast deck and zebra and giraffe can be seen grazing in the distance, as guests enjoy their morning shower. But, this is Big 5 country and not far off lions are on the hunt until they, themselves, have to retreat when pursued by a huge herd of menacing buffalo.
The game rangers doggedly and skillfully track down lions in their prides, buffalo, rhino, elephant and the solitary leopard. After every exciting safari game drive, you will find Shishangeni staff waiting to welcome you back, as enthusiastically as when you first arrived.
The Camp can accommodate 10 guests in 5 individual tents, all luxuriously equipped with en-suite bathrooms and ball and claw baths, outside shower, ceiling fans, fireplace and private game-viewing deck with recliner chairs and umbrella.
Here, we believe that luxury and comfort in the bush is ultimately the best escape from the stresses of the world. This is a welcome retreat for guests who choose to be intimately connected to nature. Wander up to the main area and laze in the charming open lounge area, or dine and sip drinks on a spacious wooden deck as the game meander past. A splash pool makes for relief between safari activities.
