Shishangeni Private Lodge
Situated in a private concession inside the Kruger National Park, Shishangeni Private Lodge is a large and welcoming hotel-like safari escape that offers sufficient comfort and exceptional safaris.
With 22 rooms, an enormous living area and a casual atmosphere, you can keep to yourself or mix with guests and staff as you please at Shishangeni – a rare treat in this day of boutique all-suite lodges.
The rooms fan out in two wings well spaced from each other and connected to the main lodge by lovely wooden walkways. Built of brick and thatch, the rooms are enormous and comfortably furnished. Each room has a large free-standing tub with a view of the bush through French doors, an outdoor shower, a separate toilet, a sitting area that opens onto a private deck, a dressing room, a mini bar and a double-sided fireplace for a romantic bath.
The main house is equally impressive in stature. The double-volume thatch, timber and brick construction has a delightfully decadent wooden game viewing deck running its entire length. The living area comprises a sitting area with a large fireplace, a service bar and a spacious dining area with individual tables.
Inclusive accommodation in 22 large suites, private game viewing deck; mini bar; fireplace; en suite bathroom; outdoor shower; family rooms; large lounge, bar, dining area and game viewing balcony; swimming pool; wine cellar; mini gym; wedding and conference facilities
The game viewing at Shishangeni Lodge, being a private concession, is both excellent and exclusive. The added bonuses are off-road traversing, open-sided safari vehicles and night drives. Your guide and tracker are born and bred in the area making your Kruger safari experience all the more interesting and authentic.

AfriCamps at Mackers
Crazy name this one. Meet the Mackers. Ryan and Michelle opened this place in July 2018. Their dream? To have a farm. E-I-E-I-O.
No marble lobby, no crystal chandelier, this place is remote, spectacular and rocks a lot of clay. Admittedly H12 is an odd name. It’s H for the heart of your host and 12 for the number of hours on a clock, months in a year etc. Interpret however you like. It’s art, darling. And H12 Leshiba is about a bed in an art gallery in the mountains in the sky.
Garonga Safari Camp
The Big 5. Safari royalty. They’re here. Enjoying the high life on the Greater Makalali Private Nature Reserve. Makalali means ‘place of rest’ and they’re not kidding. You’ll see the word tent but forget it. These ain’t no scout tepees. These will be nights in white satin, ok it’s linen but man they look good. These are capital L for luxury.
