Shingwedzi lies in the northern part of the Kruger National Park in the heart of mopane country.

A scenic game drive along the Shingwedzi River in a south-easterly direction towards the Kanniedood Dam is one of the most rewarding drives in the Park. Waterbuck, nyala, kudu and elephant are often seen here and the bird life is prolific. Staying overnight at Shingwedzi is an experience that will last a lifetime. It is a rustic camp that still carries the essence of the bush and is untouched by modern technology. Experience magical evenings where the accommodation is arranged in two separate circles and the glow emanating from braai (barbecue) stands cast a tranquil spell.

No Leaded fuel at Shingwedzi Rest Camp

Please note that Total has assisted with a temporary solution and Shingwedzi filling station now has diesel as well as unleaded fuel. However we are still not able to sell lead replacement petrol (LRP). We apologise for the inconvenience caused.
