We spent 3 nights, and whilst the setting is absolutely beautiful, the following needs to be addressed: 1) We had no water for 90% of our stay, and while we filled up the bath tub for flushing the toilet, and the lodge management dropped off bottled drinking water, the cause of the problem was apparently a faulty electrical cable to...

We went to the Watoto camp at Shikwaru Lodge for 3 nights. It was truly an amazing experience to be in such a secluded part of the bush, far from any daily distractions. Our accommodation was a permanent tent with a full bathroom that was more than comfortable. The lodge experienced a brief problem with water supply to the camp...

Relaxing atmosphere and friendly staff! Great safari tents to stay in with awesome views and fire place. We love going back every year. Game drive very nice although not much game but amazing to see the breading of the Sable and black Impala.

I love the place so much I've stayed there the last 7 times I've travelled to South Africa. The atmosphere is relaxing, the food fantastic, and the activities are priceless. Whether...

Shikwaru is a special place, run by really friendly staff. There are a range of places to stay, which for us included one of the main lodges and some of the beautiful thatched tented units out on the perimeter. The walk in from there was fabulous and included sharing parts of it with wildebeest and zebra, among other wildlife. The...

A great place to visit while in South Africa and also breath taking since you are surrounding with amazing animals. This place offers you a country feeling yet it has everything to make your stay amazing and memorable. The food is amazing, the Internet access awesome, the view both in the morning and when the sun sets is just out...

Severely overpriced for what we got. A tiny little room in Rafiki (which I was told was the best option) - I have stayed in 4 star for better prices. Electricity went out half the day. No one was at reception when we wanted to buy fire wood to cook food so we made a fire with paper and left...
