Guests can choose to stay in the rustic huts or comfortable air-conditioned bungalows. A 4 bed cottage is also available for guests to use.
There is accommodation catering for all vacation budgets, including the luxurious and spacious Rentmeester Guesthouse, offering a chance of an unforgettable and comfortable stay overlooking the Shingwedzi River. The Shingwedzi River flows only in the summer months, but winter is one of the best times to view wildlife when animals fight over the small diminishing pools which remain behind as the river recedes.
Get in touch with nature, track wildlife and birds on foot or head off on game safari drives in search of Lion and Leopard. Or why not set off on an unforgettable, heart-racing game walk out in the bush surrounding Shingwedzi Restcamp, or take a mystical night drive out in the African wilds.
Along the way, break for a barbeque and let the whoop of the Hyena and the frog-like call of the Mozambique nightjar enchant you. The 21 kilometre (13 miles) sycamore-lined route which passes by the Kanniedood Dam is a perfect place to be on the lookout for Crocodile, Hippopotamus, Elephant, Bushbuck and even Leopard.
The region around the Shingwedzi River is scattered with many mopane trees and many animals are reliant on this tree. At Inyati Restaurant, a top chef prepares gourmet meals and thirst quenching drinks tastefully, and candle lit maps cast a subtle glow in the African evening.
It still remains uncertain from where the name Shingwedzi is derived, but it is believed that the early Tsonga named the rivers of this area after prominent local people. Shingwedzi is said to be a combination of Shing-xa-goli, the name of a prominent person and 'njwetse', which describes the sound of iron being rubbed together.
