    We have been lucky enough to book in here twice over the last couple of years. Such a little piece of Bushveld heaven - it is quiet (no restaurant or shop) - has a nice new swimming pool in a lovely area and the location...More

    About
    Hotel description
    Shimuwini is a Shangaan word for "Place of the Baobab Tree". The camp is so named because the nearby Letaba River which fronts the cottages, is lined with these huge trees, one of them estimated to be between 2 000 and 3 000 years old. Shimuwini Bushveld Camp is the most modern of the bushveld camps, being completely rebuilt after the floods in 2 000.
