ABOUT CAMP SHAWU

The Kruger National Park in South Africa is two million or so hectares of unparalleled diversity of plant and animal life. It is also home to a variety of stylish and luxurious camps and accommodation options. One such camp is Camp Shawu, named after the most famous of South African elephants – the Shawu bull. He roamed the striking valley for more than 60 years and with his long tusk and striking beauty, those who were lucky enough to catch a glimpse of him were left simply awe-struck. This is what Camp Shawu aims to do: leave guests impressed and in awe.

Each of the five large, luxurious rooms have a distinct African flavour and are equipped with everything guests may desire during their stay. The Buffalo dung walls bring a real sense of authenticity to the camp and help to capture the true, and often elusive, spirit of Africa. The rooms come complete with outdoor showers and expansive verandas that provide the perfect setting to enjoy an exquisite African sunset. The private decks have glorious views of the Mpanamana Dam and guests can sit back and relax, all the while watching the game that comes down to drink at the waterside. Sightings of the mighty “Big Five” are almost always guaranteed and avid bird-watchers are in for a treat with hundreds of bird species making the area their home. A team of dedicated therapists are also on hand to ensure that it’s not only your mind that gets put at ease, but your body too. The healing energy of the area is present for every treatment so you’re sure to be left feeling re-energised and reinvigorated, as only the African bush can ensure.

ABOUT THE KRUGER NATIONAL PARK

The Kruger National Park is the primary destination in South Africa for many international tourists. Each year more than half a million visitors are registered.

The National Park was opened in 1898 at the instigation of then-president Paul Kruger. After hunters had considerably decimated the originally rich game stock, all the land between the Sabie and the Crocodile Rivers was put under the protection of Nature Conservation to ensure the survival of the remaining animals. Only as recently as 1961 was the extended Kruger Park fenced in.

The park stretches from the Crocodile River in the south up to the Limpopo River , which is the international border in the north. Altogether it is 350 km long, 65 km wide and comprises an area of about 20,000 sq km.

A web of roads of 1863 kilometres leads through the National Park, 697 km of them being tarred. For the visitor there are numerous differently equipped rest camps, most of them scenically positioned. Within the park boundaries, travel is only allowed between sunrise and sunset. After dark one has to stay in one of the fenced restcamps.

The best time for observing the animals is the dry winter season. Then the grass is low and bushes and trees don't have leaves, so that one can have an unobstructed view. Because it virtually doesn't rain in winter, the animals come to the waterholes to drink in the mornings and evenings and can easily be watched from the car.

Lodge Features:
  • Private pool decks overlooking the Mpanamana Dam
  • Large verandah to watch the game come down to drink
  • Splash pool
  • Big 5 game viewing in open 4WD vehicles
