Hello Sirs,

Is the restaurant of SHING open? We will be there for three nights in a few days (24-25-26 of feb)

This question becaus last year Shingwedzi was completely flooded at the same period.

Many thanks for your answer

Hi,
Restaurant was open in December and food/service very good.
Don't know if it is changing its franchise,but don't think it is so should be open.

Welcome to the forums Wierde. :thumbs_up:

Shingwedzi restaurant is not changing franchise in the foreseeable future, and is fully renovated after the floods.

Hope you have an enjoyable stay there. :thumbs_up:

Hi guys, planning our first stay at Shingwedzi. Could only get BG 2 units so will split the kids between hubby and I. Any recommendation on unit numbers? We would love a spot where the kids can just play around us while we enjoy the fire etc.

Thanks

Hi Cape of Storms,

Shingwedzi is one of my favourite camps, but we don't visit there often enough.
I am not sure how much has changed since the floods but the bungalows are in two big circles, almost like Satara, so there is plenty of space for the girls to play in front of the bungalows while you enjoy the fire, no grass. There is normally 2 bungalows joint together, so I would suggest to request a two bungalows that is joint.
Shingwedzi has a lovely pool, so maybe try and stay as close to the pool as possible.
Enjoy the trip. On our last visit we saw our one and only Roan on the drive towards Kanniedood dam, one of the most scenic roads in Kruger.

I think you might be better getting two bungalows that are not linked but have facing kitchens, if you see what I mean. The linked bungalows actually more separate with a wall and then a fence between them. You will share a parking space and the area between the units that face each other which would be better for families I think.

Dear Pietskiet,
I must agree to the above. Try to get 52 + 51, their entrance and the patio must face each other. I have stayed twice in 54 (which is BD2). It is close to the pool and I found it is situated in a quiet area. Furthermore the communal kitchen is not to far away. The BG2 units do not have a kitchen.

Greetings,
Brigitte

I absolutely Love Shingwedzi! My new favorite. Even when the camp sites are fully booked, you never really get that impression.

As much as I love the south, it is unfortunately starting to show rat race tendencies (i am bound to school holidays for now).
