Birders descend in droves on this peaceful bushveld camp set on a lovely dam on the Letaba River. Towering trees provide welcome shade, as well as sheltering dozens of resident and migratory birds. Away from the river, the riverine forest becomes mopane woodland where the beautiful roan antelope and rare sable antelope roam. Resident leopards patrol the territory, and elephants frequently browse in the mopane. Be sure to visit the huge, ancient baobab tree near the camp—shimuwini
is the Shangaan word for "place of the baobab," and there are lots of baobabs in the surrounding area. Cottages have one, two, or three bedrooms.
