Well done Shingwedzi

Unread postby K-4S » Sat Feb 08, 2014 7:03 pm

I have just returned from the park and I will write up a trip report in the coming weeks but just for now I would just like to say that the whole staff and overall experience at Shingwedzi rest camp was outstanding! the staff were all friendly and very helpful. The camp was always spotless and in very good condition considering that they are recovering from a flood.

the shop was much cheaper than Letaba. A shirt that I wanted to buy was R150 more expensive in the Letaba shop. :rtm:

and the front desk staff at Letaba were very rude, to the point in fact where I have decieded that i will not be staying at Letaba again.

Well done Shingwedzi I can't wait to come back :clap: :clap: :clap: :thumbs_up: :thumbs_up:

We have recently got back from 2 weeks in the park Punda - Bungalow 21 in good condition - thanks also to Garth and Mike. On to Shingwedzi Bungalow 22 - still in excellent condition - smiles and good service every where. They have a new lady manager who is doing a great job - lets hope she can keep it up On to Satara to Bungalow C68 in fair condition but repairs carried out pronto. Then 1 night at Skukuza - bungalow in good condition - cant stand the' brocade' curtains!! We needed to see the Doctor. The receptionist was delightful and Doctor Gary Peiser was informative and so good A first class service So all in all it is congratulations all round. The park is looking super just like a verdant forest sprinkled with white confetti (brown veined whites) The birds were great, the Leopards always fascinating. We will be back to Kruger on 19t March What more can I say than we love this place so dearly

We also just came back from the park . I agree with the service from Shingwedzi . This is one of the best camps in the park . Everything about this camp stepped up to the plate. If you look at the camp you would not say it was underwater a year ago . The staff always smiles and makes you feel welcome .The shop was my Wife's best experience of all the shops we stopped at in the whole park.

Shing has been my favourite camp in all of KNP for many years now, and I'm dead chuffed to see that they have got Camp of the Year for this year!! Great job, Christa and the team, very well deserved, and I can't wait to get back. Roll on, November ......
