Shingwedzi

Kruger National Park, Mpumalanga, South Africa

This attractive thatch-and-stone camp sits in northern Kruger beside the Shingwedzi River and near the Kanniedood (Never Die) Dam. Consequently there's more game around this camp than anywhere else in the region—especially when you drive the Shingwedzi River Road early in the morning or just before the camp closes at night. Be careful you don't bump into a hippo. (You'll face a hefty fine if you get back to camp late after the gates have officially closed.) Comfortable accommodations are of two types: A and B (literally). Try for one of the A units, with an additional two-bed loft; some also have fully equipped kitchenettes.

PROS

  • game-busy river road
  • in winter, gorgeous bright pink impala lilies

CONS

  • some accommodations are grouped in a circle around a big bare open space that affords little individual privacy
