Each of the 5 air-conditioned, fully-equipped tents has a romantic en-suite bathroom, as well as an outdoor shower. Guests can enjoy the view from the private viewing deck, or enjoy a cozy evening by the fireplace in the winter months. In keeping with the camp's intimate nature, Camp Shonga can accommodate a maximum of 10 guests.
Camp Shonga is located deep within the well-known Kruger National Park, home to the Big 5 - lion, leopard, elephant, rhino and buffalo. Other wildlife often seen in this area includes giraffe, zebra, wildebeest, hippo, waterbuck, cheetah, wild dogs and, of course, impalas. Game drives are conducted on open 4x4 safari vehicles with expert guides, and the game viewing in this area is fantastic.
Camp Shonga's guests can take a refreshing dip in the outdoor swimming pool, or stroll up to the main area to relax in the open lounge. 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.
