Shindzela (named after the Honey badger in the African Shangaan language) is an authentic tented Safari camp set on wooden decks under thatch (grass) roofs, each with their own en-suite shower, toilet and hand basin.
Shindzela is nestled within the Greater Kruger National Park, Timbavati Private Game Reserve.

It is from here that Shindzela brings you an affordable wildlife safari, where you can explore the African wilderness on game drives in open 4×4 safari vehicles and on foot during our walking safari trails. Safari activities are conducted by professional and knowledgeable safari guides.

The camp has an informal, relaxed atmosphere, and is alive with warm African hospitality. Shindzela offers guests a greater Kruger wildlife safari, in an unfenced wilderness environment. We make use of solar powered lights & gas geysers. We are undisturbed by some of the modern conveniences such as television, preferring to immerse ourselves in the African wilderness.
Shindzela also has a swimming pool in camp where guests can relax and overlook our small watering hole. The camp accommodates just 16 guests, and offers both walking safaris, and game drives twice daily.


Shindzela is a comfortable tented bush camp, set on the banks of a dry riverbed. Our Safari Tents can either be made up in twin or double bed accommodation.

Each tent is furnished with the following
  • Wooden entrance door to bedroom and bathroom
  • Adjustable canvas flaps for windows and mesh to keep the insects out.
  • Solar main and bedside lights
  • Bedside tables, chest of drawers and open style hanging rail with hangers.

Camp Includes the following

The general bush camp area encompasses of a covered (thatch/grass roof) safari style dining & lounge area, kitchen, staff accommodation and a central African fireplace (boma) – a perfect spot to relive safari experiences around the fire. Your African safari is hosted by a guide and tracker, and the camp is owner managed. We do operate a bar, where guests can ask their guide/tracker for a drink, all drinks are excluded in your nightly fare and can be settled in cash/credit card (Visa or MasterCard only) at camp upon check out. We have deliberately decided to keep the camp undeveloped, so as to better blend into the environment, and offer guests an undisturbed wilderness experience.
