It was absolutely magical! Shiduli Private Game Reserve was wonderful!

Thank you for asking about our trip, it was absolutely magical! Shiduli private game reserve was wonderful. All the staff were extremely attentive and professional. Everyone made a special effort to make us feel welcome.

- Terry and Linda

This is a "trip of a lifetime" for anyone who wants to see raw nature at its best!

What an awesome experience. If it had cost twice as much, it still would have been a bargain. I travel a lot for leisure (4 to 6 international trips a year) and this trip was without a doubt, the best trip Ihave ever had.

- Paul

My trip to Africa was absolutely perfect, the people that you guys work with are amazing, kind and just want to make you feel welcome and happy.
The first resort, it was beyond our imagination.
