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).

After floods, all revamped and painted. Fresh smell. Shop is magnificent. Also one of my favourites. Stayed the 29th and 30th December 2013.

Just for interest's sake (and because it's one of my favourite spots in the entire park) what does the causeway look like? Has it been rebuilt? Did they raise it?

When we were there last week the causeway was closed off and it didn't look like any work had been done on the causeway as yet. Camp itself was superb! Well run by a lady that checks up on everything all day long, made sure all braai's were cleaned daily, came around and asked if we were still happy, spot checked abulution blocks, etc. She is definitely an asset to SANPARKS.

Thanks, angiek. I agree with TD, that's the sort of employee that is needed. Hope she gets the due recognition for her good work.

I am looking forward to our stay at Shingwedzi in May - sounds great now.

Wasn't there a program where one could nominate her. We were missing some towels and she herself brought them to us.

Thanks, TD. Our kids are long-gone from the nest, so we can travel out of season - and get our Pensioners' Discount!!!

I'm sure December will be here before you know it. Hope you also have a great trip then.
