We have spent a perfect and wonderful stay in Shiduli Private Game Lodge in March 2014 with our two kids. Great place, safari, animals, personnel, service... a game lodge to visit absolutely in South Africa.

Everything about this property agreed with me. Now, it must be kept in mind that I don't have another safari against which to compare it. Greeted at the airport by Simon and Evans, hopped in the van, and off we went. Evans got my room key and showed me around; they'd put me in room 50, which is out at... More

Went on a Saga holiday for 1 week in Sept 13. Whole experience was so wonderful we booked a return visit for the same period in 2014 as soon as we returned to the UK. The Rangers and Trackers knew their profession and showed us Lions and Cheetahs at almost touching distance. The most memorable was walking to within 15... More
