Camp Shonga is a small intimate bush retreat built in the foothills of the Lebombo Mountains, offering views over the African bushveld as far as the eye can see. Camp Shonga shares the same ethos as Camp Shawu, but with the added emphasis of guests’ participation in select environmental awareness programmes. Although located in ‘Big 5’ terrain of the Kruger National Park, the objective of Camp Shonga is for guides to equally share their vast knowledge of the ‘little 5’ as well as the varying eco-systems with their guests, so ensuring an all-round safari experience. The camp can accommodate 10 guests in 5 individual tents, all luxuriously equipped with en-suite bathrooms, outside shower, ceiling fans, and timber deck.
