When we arrived we got a very, very warm welcome. We got access to our room at once. After some food and coffee it was time for our first safari with Oliver and Rojmond. I will never forget their knowledge of nature and animals. The entertainment of the staff was also fantastic. Tank you for a wonderful time, provided by... More

Stayed at the Lodge for a week last November, and had the best time ever. Comfortable rooms with amazing "rain forest" shower, comfortable bed and reasonable food, with a few evening meals out of doors thrown in. Went out every day for both the morning and evening game runs, that included a welcome coffee and muffin on the early morning... More

Had the most amazing time! The accommodations were amazing, way beyond my expectations. The food was fabulous and the people friendly. The animals were spectacular and I was able to get some amazing pictures. My stay was lovely and truly memorable.

Shiduli is a small, private game lodge in the Limpopo region of South Africa. The staff are willing and helpful, and nothing is too much trouble. There is a lovely atmosphere, and everyone smiles and is quite obviously very happy in their work. The rooms are well-appointed with everything one needs for a comfortable holiday. I particularly liked the fact... More

We had the "Big Five" by our 3rd game drive - the leapard within a half hour of our first drive. Luck for sure, but Jefferey and Reymundo were awesome at what they do. The staff were all friendly and went above and beyond to make sure our small group of 6 were taken care of. Food was excellent and... More

We had the most amazing stay at Shiduli from our welcome at the unique Phalaborwa airport and welcome drink on arrival at the Lodge. Rooms are lovely with a fabulous stone tiled shower, tea tray (with biscuits - not always provided in more expensive hotels) and little chocolates on bed turn down The staff are wonderful from the room, immaculate...

A safari in Africa was always on my "bucket list", but I never thought I would actually do it. Thanks to Master Travel & Tours my partner and I spent 5 magic days at this wonderful place. Beautiful room, with a huge stone wall shower and comfy bed artfully draped in netting for the possibility of mosquitoes. (there were none!)... More

The staff here could not be helpful enough! The trackers and guides did an amazing job on the game drives - we saw just about every animal there was to see there! The food was fresh and very well cooked. And massages are well worth the time!

Having been to South Africa once before, twelve months ago with Saga, albeit to a different game lodge, which we thought would be hard to beat, how wrong can you be! Shiduli Game Lodge is better than the brochure states. It is set in beautiful, well maintained gardens, has three pools, loungers and other seating everywhere. The rooms are superb,... More
