Shimungwe, named after the Bateleur, is the latest addition to Safari Lodges and Classic Retreats in South Africa’s (SLACRSA’s) prestigious portfolio of exceptional African experiences.
This luxurious, yet laid-back, family-friendly lodge is carefully crafted around a bend in the dry Timbavati River to bring you the best possible experiences available in the prime game viewing area of the Greater Kruger National Park.
Once reserved for private use by invited guests only, Shimungwe retains an intimate charm and is perfectly suited to exclusive use bookings. The lodge comprises just eight beds as well as comfortable dining and relaxation areas, a private game drive vehicle, and a crystal clear swimming pool.
Each carefully thought out space immerses guests in the unique, tranquil vibe of their surroundings to create a truly authentic southern African safari experience. A day at Shimungwe includes a morning and evening game drive, culminating in an evening meal around the campfire or al fresco with a view. In between, there’s plenty of time to enjoy moments of reflection and relaxation in your luxury suite or around camp.
Apart from the chance to enjoy extra game viewing at a waterhole placed in front of the lodge, guests will find themselves surrounded by many species of birds and their accompanying soundtrack, which is so typical of the African bush.
