Shishangeni private lodge has provided us with a customized experience. Game drives before sunrise and at dawn provide you with the best opportunity to see the big five and more. The lodge is located close to the Kruger southern border crocodile river, which is another guarantee animals flock together, especially during dry season. Added advantage is that it is close...

My first impression was not necessarily good, but I must admit that Shishangeni offers an awesome experience of Kruger National Park at a very competitive price. Definitely worth visiting!! Consider the 2 camps they offer - it's kind off more exclusive and remote with great views and atmosphere.

We had such a great time, the staff is friendly and helpful and the lodge is beautiful...the game drive experience was awesome, we got up close and personal with nature, led by an insightful driver. I would totally recommend this lodge for a relaxing getaway in the splendour of nature.

What an amazing place! Roomy villas with a king size bed, large outdoor shower - strange feeling showering in the open looking out onto the bush at 5am. Had been told the food would be basic but there was plenty of choice at all meals. Watch out for the monkeys trying to steal your food if you eat on the...

Our first time in Kruger and for sure not our last time. We saw so many animals and our excellent guide Nordic gave us such an amazing wildlife experience and was so funny as well. So a very big thanks to Nordic first of all. Also the rest of the hotel staff was extremely helpful and friendly at all time....

Great experience and highly recommended. Saw all the big 5. Main highlight were the amount of game we saw including a group of 17 lionesses and their cubs. We swam in the afternoon and saw elephants and cheetahs at our private watering hole. Only 5 lodges so everything felt personalized. Food was great and we utilities the spa treatments at...
