Camp Shawu named after the most famous of the African elephants, the Magnificent Seven. ‘Shawu bull’ roamed the valley here for sixty years. With the longest tusks ever recorded in South Africa, Shawu commanded instinctive respect and admiration from all who gazed upon him. Those lucky enough to have encountered this awe-inspiring bull say he took your breath away. Camp Shawu aims to do the same.
With authentic buffalo dung walls, Camp Shawu captures the spirit of the ‘real Africa’ described by famous explorers of colonial times. This camp is situated in a 15,000 hectare private concession in South Africa’s world-renowned Kruger National Park. Private decks overlooking the Mpanamana Dam, allow guests a priviledged 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 10 guests in 5 very large rooms overlooking the Mpanamana dam. All are luxuriously equipped with romantic ball and claw bath, sitting area facing open fireplace, ceiling fans and outside shower. A large verandah with reclining chairs and umbrella is the perfect spot from which to watch the game come down to drink.
