Shehanigani - Kruger National Park 

There is a place in Africa where legends are born, a place where the people love to enchant you with stories and rituals of the traditional Shishangeni Legend - this is that place…

4-Star Shenanigani is easily accessible by air or road and comprises three camps: Shishangeni Private Lodge, Camp Shonga and Camp Shawu, each adding a different experience. The emphasis of all three of our camps is on nature without losing the luxury and superior service our guests are accustomed to.

Experience magnificent sunsets, all manner of beast and prey at the watering hole, early morning or late afternoon game drives in search of the 'Big 5' with an expert guide, boma fires under an African sky, a pampering at the spa, a splash in the pool, sundowners in the bush and endless photo opportunities….

Dine on traditional cuisine at our restaurant or around a roaring boma fire under the stars of the African sky.  Stop in the bush for a coffee break or sundowner drink for an unforgettable bush experience.

Shishangeni is legendary when it comes to experiencing unforgettable African safaris that evoke mystery, wonder and above all else, adventure. Our camps offer big five game viewing, superior service, excellent cuisine, and accommodation to rival any in Southern Africa.
