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.
Each spacious tent has a wooden entrance door to both the bedroom and bathroom. Adjustable canvas flaps and mesh keep the insects out. A solar powered main gives power to the fan and bedside lights.
