Baroque in the Bush

Join us for our final Baroque in the Bush.   This will be our 26th year, and it’s been a blast!  

Baroque in the Bush is a sublime three days of Baroque concerts at Shingwedzi in the Kruger Park, featuring 16 musicians from the Johannesburg Festival Orchestra under the direction of South Africa’s favourite maestro Dr Richard Cock.  

Shingwedzi has been the perfect venue: it accommodates the optimal number of people, has a lovely picnic area where we enjoy our open-air buffet dinners, and boasts a large thatched veranda which serves as our concert hall, looking out over the Shingwedzi River bed.  

September is sublime in Kruger – the days are warm enough for an afternoon laze by the pool, the evenings are crisp and star-studded, the trees are budding, and sometimes we’re lucky enough to get a rainstorm.  All in all, a unique way to experience the beauty of the African bush.
