We booked Shalati through a South African web site, with scarce information and only generic pictures. Great deception when we arrived. Very basic chalets, small and uncomfortable, almost no space or furniture to open the luggage. Toilets dark and with suspicious smell (sewer) coming out from the hot water. We had to empty the hot-water tank completely and fill it with "fresh" water again in order to remove the smell. There were no customers at all, we were the only ones, and probably the hot water had been in the tank for too long. Good home-made food. It is a cheapy where overland trucks stop for a night. Better go to Orpen or somewhere elese within teh nearby Kruber National Park. The sorrounding area of Shalati is not so interesting anyway, we ended up going into Kruger

We stayed on Shalati's campsite as a part of an overland tour. The campsite is unique in that it's a mostly concrete sight where a restaurant once stood and that the land is leased from a local tribe and employs and provides on-the-job training for people from this tribe. The staff is great and we had our own private bar at our campsite! The only problem we encountered was when we had an overnight rainstorm- the bar area and some of the camping area had quite a bit of standing water, making it interesting to get around without getting splashed in the morning. Give back to the local community and have a nice stay at the same time at Shalati.

The Shalati Safari Lodge is a great place to stay if you wish to spot the big 5 during game drives in the "greater Krueger national park". The lodge is located directly at the border of the Manyeleti game reserve. The lodge offers simple, but very beautiful and clean chalets with own shower and toilet witch are perfectly integrated into the environment. Paul and Maryanna who run the place gave us a warm and cordial welcome and offer a great service. The "lekker" food is handmade and is served in a dining-hall at the pool. The lodge also supports a local school project. I would recommend this place to any of my friends.

We loved Shalati! We were on a tour with the manager Paul as our tourguide, with a brief stop at Shalati. Paul and his wife Maryanna were warm and welcoming, and the grounds quite well kept. They have a lovely outdoor bar and firepit, and you take wonderful meals by the pool. They heard that it was my sons birthday, and came out singing with a tray of breakfast muffins with candles, and had bought him a t-shirt as a gift. They arranged for us to visit a local school too, so that my kids could see what life is like in the village, and took us on some amazing game drives. It is not a luxury resort, but a well priced place to stay in the bush to get the full experience of a safari adventure.
