Shingwedzi of the 1950s




Hi there,

My wife and I spent some time in the KNP in March this year. Whilst at Shingwedzi, my wife was shown an old black-and-white photo of the original circle of accommodation units. We were fascinated by the photo so moved around the units (which have been greatly altered now). By looking at the position of the old mopane trees we were able to work out which units were photographed (now numbers nine to 11), and where the photo was taken from. On the back of the photo was written 'Shingwedzi 1950' Thought these photos might interest you for your Kruger Park Times.

Regards Hugh and Loueen Chittenden, Eshowe
