The main area also has a large wooden deck, where guests can enjoy a drink or delicious meal, while absorbing the scenery. In the evenings, delicious traditional cuisine is served in the camp's outdoor boma (reed enclosed alfresco dining area). Guests enjoy their meal around a roaring fire, with nothing but the African night sky overhead.

Access to Camp Shonga is by road transfer from Nelspruit (about 2 hours). Alternatively, you can rent a car with us and drive yourself to the lodge. Camp Shonga offers good value-for-money and a great safari experience.
