Take a large shot of African nature, add wildlife and luxury, and stir in some superior service, and you find yourself describing Shisangeni Private Lodge. The lodge is situated in a private concession in the Kruger National Park, with the perennial Crocodile River to the south and Mozambique in the east forming its borders. This is a place where the people love to enchant you with traditional stories around boma fires under an African sky, where you can experience magnificent sunsets, game and predators at the watering hole, early morning or late afternoon game drives with an expert guide and sundowners in the bush, a pampering at the spa, a splash in the pool, with endless photo opportunities.
You are collected from the Johannesburg OR Tambo Airport by 07:00am and will travel via the N4 motorway through the Highveld of Gauteng and Mpumalanga, down the escarpment and into the scenic Lowveld until you reach the reserve inside the Greater Kruger National Park.
