Good morning Bushbuddies

Thanks for posting your shingwetzi pictures. Unit 68 is indeed a wheelchair friendly unit. It looks beautiful and spacious.

I added your picture to the first page. :thumbs_up:

Some pics of our family Cottage FF4 at Shingwedzi where we stayed in March this year.

A plaque on the side of the outside wall.

The view to the back of the unit, would be great if they were facing in that direction!

Kitchen/dining area

Plates on the wall in the dining/kitchen area

ImageLarge

One bedroom/en suite bathroom which has 2 single beds pushed together.

Another view of same room

The other bedroom, double bed and en suite bathroom

ImageLarge

Another view, note the pics on the wall!! :wink:

Not a bad cottage but it did look rather tired in places and definitely needed some TLC which we did report in a feedback form and directly to the reception at the time.

That's nice LQ. Well any pics will be good, but one of the swimming pool and some general pics will be great. We were there a few years ago, but I was so sick, I laid in bed for 2 days and didn't have much time t walk around camp.

Hi Roaneric,
You asked me to post these photos of Shingwedzi earlier, but I had a few computer and work challenges. I will post them now. I will be in Shingwedzi again late December 2012 and will take some more photos.

There are 3 beds in this surprisingly large EH3 hut as well as a wash basin with warm and cold water, an electric kettle, cups, mugs, glasses and tea/coffee/suger. Outside is a large fridge/freezer and a large lockable space for groceries.
