    family atmosphere in a very well-equipped hotel with a very organised team. Be patient to see the animals you want to see, as all reserves. Winter is also a great season. Animals are more visible. Ranger's explanations are welcome to better discover wildlife

    What happens to the male lions in shiduli that are born there? I know that this question was asked to several of the rangers but they where very illusive in there answer.

    Hello Irene, We also went to Shiduli a few years ago and loved it. When phoning Saga about another holiday there next year we were told that they are no longer featuring it. They had no explanation as to why. Do you know?
