What our guests say
This is without a doubt, one of the best places I have ever been! The rooms are absolutely beautiful and clean with a personal touch everyday. If you want true African bush and to see animals of every kind…this is the place for you!

I was here for two nights, considering that you are in the middle of nowhere I think is very good. The room was always clean with a good Air conditioner. Staff were very friendly. Free internet from the lobby area is a plus when you are so far from home.
Danielvilla - Mexico City
The room was wide, well decorated, very clean. The Game drives were well guided, it was easy to find the big five or other interesting animals like cheetah and wild dogs. The staff were the most friendly I ever met (and I've been in more than 100 hotels in the past few years).

Camp Shawu was fantastic! We were originally only booked to stay for a night, but had to stay for another we enjoyed it so much! Being on the large waterhole enabled us to laze between game drives watching the young hippo frolicking and older ones lolling around in the water, fish eagles fishing, large herds of buffalo come down to drink (close to 500 I think) with elephant, hyena, lion, assortment of buck , zebra, rhino's which was wonderful considering they are near extinction now due to being poached.

Game drives are the highlight of our entire SA trip! The path way walks in clear sky is just an experience of it's own. We loved the cottage at the first sight itself! Very spacious and clean. Full of privacy! The open shower and tub is a unique experience! This place is really amazing to stay relax and enjoy the serene nature. This place is the most memorable place in our trip! Thank you all of you guys for the wonderful service!
