Shangaan River Club

Immerse Yourself in a Feast of Culture with a Night of Shangaan Song and Dance and an Unforgettable African Banquet

Follow the sound of the beating drums through a path of flaming torches and immerse yourself in a Feast of Culture. Based at Hippo Hollow Country Estate in Hazyview, the Shangaan River Club welcomes all to the festivities under the thatched Boma where traditional South African and Shangaan cuisine form a feast in the true sense of the word.

This joint venture between Hippo Hollow and the local community provides an enchanting evening blended with history and entertainment under the African night sky.


An African banquet with an impressive selection of Shangaan and South African mouth-watering dishes served from traditional cast-iron pots completes your enlightening and entertaining Shangaan experience. The Shangaan River Club is ideal for individuals, families, groups, or just you and your friends and is also a fantastic wedding venue.
