As one of only three luxury lodges within a 15,000ha private concession in the Kruger National Park – South Africa’s flagship safari destination – guests at Shishangeni Lodge are promised an uncrowded and unique safari experience. Listen to the calls of the wild from the comfort of your private deck, embark on game drives in pursuit of the Big 5 among others, and dance after dinner in the campfire-lit boma.
Whether you’ve got binoculars in hand in the hopes of catching a glimpse of lilac-breasted rollers and Bateleur eagles, or you’ve got a keen eye on the horizon for any sly movement hinting at lion and hyena in the grassland, Kruger is the place to see it all. This safari mecca is home to the Big 5, over 500 bird species and an impressive array of other wildlife.
Wooden walkways meander between the main lodge and the 22 individual chalets boasting a fireplace, outdoor shower, deck and sitting area. Twice-daily game drives are each broken by morning coffee breaks and evening sundowners, while the Sanctuary Spa allows guests to enjoy treatments in the comfort of their room.
