It was excellent. We were looked after. All the staff made sure we were taken care of. The game viewing was amazing and we saw all The Big Five in two days. Certainly will recommend it to all our family and friends.

Dear Caroline, Johan, John, Andre, Maleta, Eugene et al, Sandy and I would like to thank you all very much for a memorable experience at Shindzela Tented Camp. It was everything we had hoped for in a safari experience. Being in the company of like-minded people and guided by people who truly have a passion for the large and small ecosystems is everything that the safari experience should be. You are definitely a class act that will be difficult to top. We will definitely spread the word that your establishment and personnel are true value for money. We were more than thrilled to get up close and personal with all of the animals that we fortunate to observe. Johan's insistence that we sit and be relaxed definitely paid off. We have never been so close to wild animals in their own habitat. Seeing the big five all in one day was unbelievable. But the cherry on the cake was coming across the elephant herd that was protecting the newborn baby elephant! How often does that happen? Incredible.

The safari tent with outdoor shower was perfect. It was clean and adequate for our needs. Who could ask for more when you have your own toilet, hot/cold running water, even shampoo and insect repellent and lotion? We ate so much, Maleta, we had to go on a diet as soon as we got home! Meals were good, hearty fare. The open bar with everything one could ask for is wonderful.

Again, thank you so very much. Hope you have a Merry Christmas and a great New Year. Cheers!

This was a really friendly place to stay, not only the staff but also the smaller number of guests meant a friendly relaxed atmosphere. The tents were wonderful and the food generous and good.
The guides were excellent, clearly very experienced at tracking and very informative. I would recommend this camp to anyone.

This was our first trip to Africa and based on our experience at Shindzela, we would not hesitate to do it again. Dave and Laura (the owners) are fantastic people and went out of their way to ensure our visit was special. Their staff, Melita (the chef), I wanted to bring home with us, and Lawrence (our tracker) was exceptionally gifted and just a very nice person!

The facilty was what one would expect for a bush camp. The grounds were very clean and well maintained; the pool very refreshing; the tents very comfortable. Our forays into the bush was exciting and we managed to see all of the big 5 except for the leopard.

We were "in-country" for nearly 6 weeks and this was, without doubt, our highlight week! You can pay more and get more but if you want value for your dollar, go Shindzela!
