Shindzela Tented Safari Camp, is situated within the Timbavati Private Nature Reserve, part of the Greater Kruger National Park. Shindzela Tented Camp is a simple but comfortable South African bush camp, offering an authentic African safari experience in an unfenced, natural wilderness environment.

This tented camp is our safari base for our wildlife activities – game drives and walking safaris. If you are looking for an affordable Kruger camp, and a safari in a private game reserve, consider visiting Shindzela for a true wilderness experience.

We have comfortable safari accommodation in a canvas tent: Each tent has a wooden entrance door, adjustable canvas flaps for windows, and mesh to keep insects out. All tents have a thatch (grass) roof and porch, designed to cool the tents in summer and keep warm in winter. Tents are equipped with 2 x 3/4 beds, solar lighting, all bedding, and towels, private en-suite bathroom with shower, hand basin and flush toilet. In summer, mosquito nets are fitted above the beds.

Why Choose a Tented Camp

Staying in an authentic canvas safari tent is reminiscence of an authentic safari from a bygone era, when Africa was still being explored and a safari was all about the sights, sounds and smells of Africa.

A safari under canvas brings this back and lets you experience Africa up close and personal. Shindzela Tented Camp is owner run and managed, and your African safari is hosted by your safari guides and trackers.

We have deliberately decided to keep Shindzela undeveloped, so as to better blend in to the environment, and offer guests an undisturbed wilderness experience.

This Tented Safari Camp is an ideal option for your African safari, providing you with prime game viewing within the Timbavati Reserve, part of the Greater Kruger National Park.
