Certificate of Excellence
Shishangeni by BON Hotels is easily accessible by air or road and comprises three camps: Shishangeni Private Lodge, Camp Shonga and Camp Shawu, each adding a different experience. The emphasis of all three of our camps is on nature without losing the luxury and superior service our guests are accustomed to. Experience magnificent sunsets, all manner of beast and prey at the watering hole, early morning or late afternoon game drives in search of the 'Big 5' with an expert guide, boma fires under an African sky, a pampering at the spa, a splash in the pool, sundowners in the bush and endless photo opportunities….
