Our stay at Shiduli Washington fantastic. We loved everything. The food is excellent. People in Shiduli treat you very well.But the highest points are the Safaris. You really see the animals and see them very close to you.

Spend 2 nights with my wife; room is good and bathroom spacious, but overall could be better cleaning, considering the spider webs; food was ok, honestly is something that could be upgraded; safari jeeps needs a major upgrade, cars are made out from old cars spare parts, so by looking the instruments you cannot tell is fuel talk is full...

A Great location, well looked after by all the staff. All the rangers and tracker were excellent at their job and looked after us both on the safaris and at the lodge. The young girl SAM was excellent and was always on hand to help and advise us. It would be a great shame to loss her next year.

Shiduli Lodge and Karongwe Game Reserve was a fantastic way to experience an African Safari. The rooms and facilities were modern and clean and the staff were friendly and helpful. The guides on the game drives were knowledgeable and put a lot of effort into tracking down a wide range of wildlife(Saw all of the big 5 by the second... More

We were lucky enough to stay at Shiduli following a recommendation from family who had stayed before. We were not disappointed! The reserve is, of course, very remote so its perfect for total relaxation away from the hustle of normal life. The rooms are set in lovely tranquil landscaped gardens, and are a minutes walk from the main reception, dining... More

This place had all the charm of being in the bush but with all the amenities one could need. The staff members were kind and the rangers were knowledgeable. Game drives were unforgettable and the food was pretty good. Would definitely go again.

The design of the place is nice so with the rooms. The food choices are limited. No service water is being given thus you have to buy water. The saddest part I encountered was there was no HOT water so I had to take a cold bath. I reported this but no action was done. How disappointing- poor service and... More

What a place - we saw the big five within 24 hours of arrival plus leopard again during the week. Room 5 was smashing and convenient to the dining room and lounges etc. Swimming pool pretty chilly in early October.

The Shiduli experience far exceeded expectations. You can pretty much guarantee you will see the Big 5 and so much more. Staff at the lodge are so friendly and helpful nothing is too much trouble. Monkey, Baboon and Nyala visit on a daily basis in the grounds. Rooms more than adequate, good not cordon bleu good but you don't expect... More
