Camp Shawu - Shishangeni Private Lodge

Camp Shawu, an intimate satellite camp of the main Lodge at Shishangeni is situated in the 15,000 hectare southern eastern tip of the Mpanamana private concession area.

This uniquely designed camp comprises only five rooms, each with private decks overlooking the only dam and permanent water supply in the area. Authentically constructed dung walls on the outside, combined with canvas on the inside and completed by the  shaggy style thatching, each very large room is luxuriously equipped with romantic ball and claw bath, mini bar, sitting room facing an open fireplace, ceiling fans, mosquito nets, outside shower and paints the perfect picture of past colonial times. 

The central area consists of a main lounge, indoor and outdoor dining area as well as a splash pool. Daily menus are designed around guest desires and private meals can also be taken on the private decks, under the star studded African skies. Personal service and attention to detail are the hallmarks of this camp. A large veranda with reclining chairs is the perfect spot from which to watch the game come to drink, which includes large herds of elephant. Game drives in open four wheel drive vehicles are taken twice a day, with the possibility of guided walks an option for the more adventurous.

Following in the large footprints of Shawu is the current largest tusker in the Kruger, known as Duke. Offering a unique photographic opportunity, he is very often seen around the Camp, as if he too has come to pay homage to the legendary Shawu.
