The safari was excellent and our tourguide Simon was a 10 star guide! He did everything he could to give us an amazing experience of a lifetime. The sevice of the hotel was not very good, they rushed all meals and served a 3 course meal in 55 minutes! Many of the staff spoke very poor or english and it...

Truly disappointed with Camp Shawu. I have stayed before (3 times) at Shishangeni lodge. This time I chose Camp Sawu to have a different experience. And everything was very much below my expectations. One is hoping to be better instaled then in Shishangeni lodge, due to price being higher than Shonga or Shishangeni lodge. Due to weak finishing of construction,...

I would really like to warn travellers not to waste their time and money at Shishangeni Lodge! For the money there are so many much better lodges that will treat you with care and respect. Our experience was terrible and they really have shown no signs of caring to rectify anything either during our stay or since! The Kruger is...

The lodge is located inside the Kruger park, close to the boarder with Mozambique. The guys working there are all very friendly and always eager to help. We really had a blast: our room was beautifully furnished and very spacious, a plus was the outdoor shower. The meals were all very good: sometimes buffet, some others a la cart, food...

We couldn't have asked for a better safari experience for my wife & I as adults and for my 9 year old son. The lodge is amazing, our room was incredible and backed onto the park so that we could watch the animals even while relaxing or showering, the food was fantastic and our game ranger, Nfondo (hope I spelt...

Focal point: if you come to this lodge in a private concession of Kruger park, of course, the main interest is not focused on reaching the best hotel comfort, but by this lodge you would expect a small step more in my opinion: 1) The furniture in the bathroom are rather in bad conditions and the poufs at the bottom...

I was here with a group last year and this time as well. The service and experience is excellent and the raiders/guides that take you on your game drives are really proffesional and give you the experience of your life! The water in the pool looked dirty but I think the dry period had given them some problems with the...

What a great place! Everyone has his/her own villa. The shower is on the outside, but that didn't matter. It's very private except for an occasional impala or monkey that wanders by. The meals are held in the main lodge and are buffet. The rooms are air conditioned, but not the main lodge.

The staff was available and helpful. The location inside Kruger National Park is a plus. Our game driver was friendly and knowledgeable. There was a variety of food choices and it was all delicious. We met several couples on honeymoon there, though we were not!
