Fantastic stay.
Great little place if you want to avoid some of the more exorbitant places in kruger. Saw the big 5 after a day and a half, plus cheetah, giraffe, hippo and plenty more. The 3 nights we stayed was plenty.

Great service but not enough animals
We did enjoy Shiduli, the crued was amazing and the food was delicious. The problem is that are not enough animals at the reserve. Going to Kruger is much more recommended if your goal is to see the big5. One thing more is that everything extra is cost based. Drive safetly near the reserve, the cups search for tourists to get some money from them.

Lovely place to visit
I booked this for my daughter & her boyfriend as a break whilst they were volunteering in South Africa. They absolutely loved it. The hotel / food were really good and the game drives superb - seeing a wide variety of animals at close quarters. The knowledgeable rangers join the guests at dinner which adds to the experience. They loved it so much they decided to stay for a 2nd night!

Les safaris étaient super ! Le ranger et le tracker ont été parfaits. Le jardin de l'hôtel est splendide et les différents salons très agréables. C'est un havre de paix. Par contre, les piscines ne sont pas très propres, eaux troubles et pas très propres.

Great to see the big five!!
Shiduli was the perfect place to go for a Safari. We managed to spot all big five, Evans was a great guide and Joel a great tracker. They were very patient explaining all they knew about the animals and enviroment. They also chose the best spots to see the animals and have some snacks as we would see the sunset. The staf were also very kind and helpful, ready to fulfill any request. The food was amazing and the places to rest between one game drive and another very relaxing. The rooms were clean and confortable.

Wild and fabulous
Equipe extremamente atenciosa. Refeições memoráveis, especialmente os jantares ao redor de uma fogueira. Ranger e tracker dedicados e profissionais. Safaris superaram as expectativas.

Uma boa opção de hotel com Safari incluso !
O hotel tem um staff amigável, e nos receberam com um welcome drink Tem os safaris as 15h30 e as 06h00 Pontos negativos: o quarto não tem tv ou wi-fi. Alem disso no Safari de manhã, o café da manhã só é servido após o Safari e não servem sequer bolachinhas ou algo ( ou seja você acorda às 05 e só vai comer as 09h30). Alem disto a refeição no Safari da tarde e as opções no almoço e café da manhã poderiam ser mais completas pelo valor

Muito bom
Lugar muito bom, com excelente custo benefício dentre as reservas privadas em que pesquisamos na região, guias bem preparados e simpáticos, único porém é o acesso a internet que apresenta dificuldades.
