We enjoyed the quiet surroundings, view of mountain and informative guided bush walk. Chef Ann out did herself in providing gluten free meals, she made our dinners and breakfasts exiting! We left Shikwari feeling like we are leaving family behind and will definitely (God willing) return to this beautiful place.
Superb. 5 out of 5

Shikwari is without a doubt one of the best places I have ever stayed it. This place is definitely top class 4 star accommodation with Great Views! Very friendly staff. One of the best dinners I have had. Very close to the Blyde River dam. I wish I had arranged to stay longer.

I booked at Shikwari Game Reserve because of it's location, beautiful view of blydepoort canyon, did not expect the excellent food and treatment from host and staff. We were absolutely spoilt and treated like a king and queen. It was an awesome experience and a wonderful stay. Activities were organised daily by Shikwari Game Reserve so we got to see and do a lot more than we ever imagined. It was really a wonderful and memorable stay. Thanks to all at Shikwari Game Reserve and game farm.

The place was great, the food was amazing and the service even better. Every detail was well thought out and made the trip extra special. It was great to see animals on the property but when you are in your room, it feels like there is no one else there...

I stayed overnight at the reserve on my way from Thohoyandou to Lydenburg. The greeting and welcoming was done in a very friendly and professional manner and made me feel welcome. The food was also very good. Accommodation was clean and neat. Overall experience very good and value for money. I will recommend the place to anyone.

We went to Shikwari for our honeymoon. We were treated as royalty. The food was amazing. The rooms was always neat and tidy. They really went out of there way to spoil us and to help us when needed. The wild game walking in the park is truly remarkable.
