Feel like a posh five star hotel experience won’t bring you closer to nature? Then you have found your match. Shindzela Tented Camp is a small, eco friendly tent camp in the Timbavati Game Reserve, where animal lovers will leave with a warm African memory in their heart. Sit on your private veranda in front of your tent, and coalesce with the surrounding lush bush. Let a blanket of hushed air cover you at dawn, and peek at the hippos taking their morning splash in the waterhole, only a stones throw away. Shindzela is an unfenced camp, and will fulfill all your safari desires: the Big Five, thrilling game drives, animals roaming through the camp, home cooked soul warming food, South African hospitality, stunning night skies studded with stars; it is simply nature at is best. This is the real deal.
In a bygone era, safari was all about the sights, sounds and smells of Africa. Get a hold of this authentic feeling when you sleep under canvas. Each of the canvas tents at Shindzela Tented Camp has a thatch grass roof, to keep you cool in the African heat and cosy in the winter. Tents are built on wooden decks and come with a private veranda. Six of the eight tents have a view at the waterhole across the camp. Tent number seven and eight are more remote and slightly further from the main area, overlooking the dry riverbed. Your room has everything you need: mosquito nets, comfortable beds with fresh linen, moisturizing South African-made amenities (like body lotion, body wash and insect repellent), and a private en-suite bathroom with hot shower and soft towels. All tents are equipped with eco friendly solar lighting. And talk about reconnecting with nature: the tents don’t have electrical outlets. But no worries: there is a charging station in the main area. As is a WiFi connection, although you might feel like switching off – not just your devices - for a while.

We travelled with Falcon Safaris in Zimbabwe and Botswana for 16 days. Falcon designed a wonderful trip with private guide to the most interesting sites in both countries. The organization of the whole trip was excellent, flights within the country, accommodation and activites. The guides were very knowledgable and told us a lot about the countries, their history, people, economy and much more. Wevisited the Great Zimbabwe Ruins, the Victoria Falls and a number of national parks in both countries.
Rhino tracking was a real adventure! We had tremendous further game drives and saw very many animals - we did the Big Five. We had much more activities than planned and enjoyed very much.We strongly recommend Falcon Safaris to everyone planning a trip to Southern Africa and East Africa.
Our Consultant Vimbai was very helpful and accommodating. We stayed at the Elephant hills hotel which was nothing short of amazing.Our activities included a helicopter flight, dinner cruise as well as a morning game drive. All the activities were absolutely amazing.
We worked with Gertrude to schedule and organize everything and she did an excellent job. I asked a lot of questions via e-mail and she answered everyone in a timely helpful manner. Our guide at Victoria Falls was also great. He met us at the airport, provided a thoughtful tour of the Falls and got us to our next guide in Botswana. Our lodgings at River View Lodge were just as described- very comfortable and excellent food. All the staff were so pleasant and helpful. If I had to do it again I would arrange a morning boat ride as well. We only did the sunset boat rides and they were the high point of our entire trip- we saw so many animals and our guide was very knowledgeable. Just a great experience. Our lodgings at Oddball's Enclave was rustic and we loved it. So great to disconnect from the world for a bit. Leo, our guide, was the best - got us out and about, saw fantastic wildlife and got back to camp safely each time. Doc manages the camp so well. This whole trip was planned and organized by Falcon Safaris and we could not have been happier.
Falcon safaris have given my the correct advice with excellent service. The only suggestion will be to work closer with the lodges to confirm bookings as soon as possible. We have booked and pay our deposit a year in advance. We have only receive our final convermation from Chobe Safari lodge a week before departure. I do realize its not within your controle but with limit alternatives and a group of 14 people it becomes an issue to find alternative accomodation if the booking was cancelled.
Our passion for Africa and her rich diversity is what drives us to deliver superior itineraries for you. With over 30 years’ unrivalled experience, we believe your trip should be as unique as you are and so we tailor-make them for you as an individual.
