Upon my arrival, my driver and guide, sean, warmly greeted me and gave me a tour of the property. The lodge, pool, common area, grounds and rooms... More

Had a great experience, very good accommodation, lovely meals and friendly people. Excellent game drives, the Rangers were so enthusiastic for us to see the big five, which we did. The Lodge itself is in a beautiful setting, with monkeys and baboons patrolling the grounds. I would not hesitate to go back.

Truly magical experience, staff could not do enough for you. Shaun the game driver was excellent, worked very hard to ensure all guests were able to see as many animals as possible. The atmosphere was very relaxing rooms comfortable and clean.

Travelling as a family, with 2 children of 10 and 12, we had a magnificent time during our 3day stay at Shiduli lodge. The warm welcome, the reception hall, the rooms and bathrooms and not to forget the bar were all beautifully decorated and makes you want to stay. But best of all were our ranger and spotter, they were... More

My wife and I stayed here over the new year on our first safari experience. The game drives themselves were incredible, our guide Sean was knowledgable, attentive and friendly. The same for his tracker Michael. The staff all around made for a fun and exciting experience. Service in the dining room, front desk and spa left a little to be... More

We stayed in December 2015 at the Shibuli Game Lodge. Our experience was magical. Our game driver, Evans, was outstanding in his knowledge and in his desire for us to get the most out of our time with him.. we learned SO much ... Our room was great- very romantic and the bed was very comfortable. Food was good and... More

I had a wonderful time here in Shiduli, the Accommodation is very clean, the food is good quality and the service couldn't be better. The general manager of the hotel picked me and my family in Hoedspruit Airport which was a really nice gesture. Also, once we arrived everyone was helping us locating our room and with our luggage. The... More

Great rooms, we had 2 en-suite rooms with 2 bathrooms, spacious, comfortable with everything needed. The pool, a pure paradise for the children! The staff: super friendly and competent.... More
