    This is the first time we stayed at this bush camp. It is situated on the Letaba river, which makes for great game viewing. The chalets are well appointed, except we did not have braai tongs. The camp is solar powered, which is fine. Only...More

    The road to the camp is very rough and the chalets are run down. They are OK at best. We lost power for several hours one night. You can hear hippos all night! The kitchen is small and eating and sitting are outside.

    About
    Hotel description
    Shimuwini is a Shangaan word for "Place of the Baobab Tree". The camp is so named because the nearby Letaba River which fronts the cottages, is lined with these huge trees, one of them estimated to be between 2 000 and 3 000 years old. Shimuwini Bushveld Camp is the most modern of the bushveld camps, being completely rebuilt after the floods in 2 000.
