Shidolo Camp – Self Catering Bush Camp

Shidolo is a lovely, yet rustic, camp with NO ELECTRICITY, situated in the middle of the African bush, for those who are looking for a real authentic bush experience! Be prepared to sit around a fire under a magnificent, star-filled night sky, which includes views of the Milky Way Galaxy on a perfect night, surrounded by the lions roaring, jackals howling, and all the beautiful sounds of the African bush! This is the perfect camp to truly disconnect from the world and technology with just nature surrounding you. A truly fantastic way to experience Africa at its best.

Other Important Information:

  • There are two friendly outdoor-only cats residing at Shidolo – Chaka and Anu. They tend to stay outside although they do have a tendency to sneak into the two rondavels at Shidolo at night in attempts to snuggle. Make sure to bring allergy medicine if needed.
  • Be prepared for extreme weather. In the winter, bring warm clothes as night temperatures and lion checks are very cold. In the summer, bring light clothing that still protects your skin from the elements and bugs.
  • If you plan on using electronics at another camp at some point, please bring an adapter. South African adapters have a unique configuration of fat round prongs in a 3-prong design. Plug adapters can be purchased at the Johannesburg airport or at the Pick ‘n Pay in Hoedspruit.
