CAMP SHAWU

Named after the most famous of the African elephants, Camp Shawu will awe you, just as seeing Shawu would. The “Shawu Bull” roamed this valley for sixty years, and commanded instinctive respect and admiration from all who gazed upon him. With the longest tusks ever recorded in South Africa, Shawu is a legend of Africa whose legacy lives on. 

With authentic buffalo dung walls, Camp Shawu captures the spirit of the ‘real Africa’ described by the famous explorers of colonial times. This camp is situated in a 15000-hectare private concession in the world-renowned Kruger National Park. Private decks that overlook the Mpanamana Dam, allow guests a privileged view of game gathering to drink.

Explore Africa’s wildlife in and around Camp Shawu. Lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo, rhino, cheetah, hippo and crocodile abound. You will return restored and rejuvenated – having absorbed the magical energy and spiritual presence inherent in the bush.

ACCOMMODATION

The Camp can accommodate up to ten guests in five very large rooms, each overlooking the Mpanamana dam. All are luxuriously equipped with romantic ball and claw baths, sitting area facing an open fireplace, ceiling fans and an outside shower. A large verandah with reclining chairs and umbrella is the perfect spot from which to watch the game come down to drink.
