Where do I start....from the time my guide Juan met me at check in till the time I left. Fantastic experience. Lodge fantastic , food fantastic but what was really fantastic was Juan and Peter. The best guide and tracker in the business. We managed 4 out of the big 5. Tried hard to find the leopard but alas wasn’t to be. That just gives me a great excuse to return. I would return to Shiduli in a heart beat especially if I get Juan and Peter as my guide and tracker again

We had a very pleasant stay at Shiduli, everything was really well organized and services were excellent. Game safari were really exciting, the ranger and the tracker did really a great job trying to show us all the best of the animals of the reserve, we had an incredible time and fun. Would recommend it and hope to be back again!

Shiduli Private Game Lodge is magical! Tess, Andrew, Moven, Condre, Dennis, Pearl, Rachel, and ALL the staff were extremely attentive and professional. Everyone made a special effort to make us feel welcome and as if we were the only guests. The food was superb and the dining experience was always unique. The lodge itself is marvelous....clean, spacious, and a true game lodge experience. The game drives exceeded expectations. Moven and Condre are extremely knowledgeable and went out of their way to make our time truly exciting. Thank you everyone for a life-long memorable experience!

Our 3 night stay at Shiduli Lodge was the most amazing experience! We loved our guide (Juan) and tracker (Peter). I don't know how the other visitors felt about their guides/trackers, but our jeep group felt that we got the dream team. Juan is super knowledgeable about the animals and has an infectious enthusiasm for the wild. Peter was truly an amazing tracker. His years of experience resulted in often being the first jeep to see a particular animal. We were able to see the Big 5 and even saw a pride of lions with a kill. We will never forget our safari adventure - thank you Peter and Juan for a truly amazing experience! Besides the safari rides, I can't say enough about the lodge. The food was absolutely delicious - by the 2nd night, I was so full from all of the food, I could barely eat another bite. If I'm lucky enough to return to South Africa, I would definitely stay at Shiduli Lodge again. One word of advice - bring a decent camera. My husband and I used our iPhones and got good photos as well as videos (super important to capture the animals). We also borrowed my daughter's Canon EOS. I wasn't familiar with the features so used it as a point-and-click camera...and still got the most amazing photos like the ones I'm attaching here.
