Vir my was dit geldmors.

Ek het net een aand daar geslaap of eerder probeer slaap. Air-conditioner in ons kamer het bly afgaan. Die dakwaaier het nie veel gehelp nie, want daar is nie 'n venster in die kamer om oop te maak nie. Net 'n skuifdeur - kon dit nie oopmaak nie, want jy weet nie wat daar rondloop in die nag nie. Dit was warm en bedompig en ek kon nie slaap nie. Aandete was laat - eers half agt en dan moes ons vir al die ander gaste wag voordat ons kon begin eet. Dit het nie vir my gewerk nie. Hulle wou ons die volgende dag in 'n ander kamer sit, maar daar was ook geen vensters nie. Sou nie vir my werk nie. Jy word ook nie toegelaat om jou eie drinkgoed saam te vat nie - moet by hulle koop. Ek sal glad nie die plek aanbeveel nie.

Hi Francois,
I am rather surprised by this review. I did try to accommodate you, firstly, in another room when the aircon broke down during the night. You decided that you didn't like the room I had shown you, because it only had sliding doors and no opening windows, so I offered a room with windows. I showed you the room and you said you would think about it.
You also complained that we serve all guest at 7:30 pm, which is the usual time for dinner and wanted dinner at 17:00 in the afternoon due to ill health. Although this was not possible, I offered you a snack to tide you over until dinner, which you refused.

Gasvry en netjies.

Ons was verras deur die pragtige kamer waarin ons gebly het en die vriendelike personeel. Geen moeite is gespaar om ons verblyf in die Shikwari Wildreservaat een vir die boeke te maak nie. Ons het vir Ann en Ian ontmoet, die eienaars wat ons verwelkom het met 'n drankie en ons na ons kamer gewys het. Die uitsigte is skouspelagtig en die diere loop vry rond. Ons was gelukkig dat ons die grootste Kudubul ooit gesien het! Die kos, wat deur Sue en Unecia voorberei is, was heerlik! Ons was behoorlik bederf en het ons verblyf baie geniet. Noel wou ons nog steeds aan sy beste vriend, 'n manlike sebra (Boytjie), voorstel, maar die tyd was te kort. As jy die beste skons en kos ooit wil hê, sal Sue en Unecia jou nie teleurstel met hul vaardighede nie. Nogmaals baie dankie vir 'n wonderlike naweek. Ons mis julle almal al klaar! Ons beveel Shikwari Game Reserve sterk aan.

Hospitable and neat.

We were surprised by the beautiful room we stayed in and the friendly staff. No stone was left unturned to make our stay at Shikwari Game Reserve one for the books. We met Ann and Ian, the owners who welcomed us with a drink and showed us to our room. The views are spectacular and the animals are roaming free. We were lucky to have seen the biggest male Kudu ever! The food, which was prepared by Sue and Unecia, was to die for! We were properly spoiled and really enjoyed our stay. Noel still wanted to introduce us to his best friend, a male Zebra (Boytjie), but time cut it short. If you want the best scones and food ever, Sue and Unecia, will not disappoint you with their skills. Thank you, once again, for a fabulous weekend. We already miss all of you! We highly recommend Shikwari Game Reserve.

Relaxing treat in the bush.

Very well treated. Our guide Noel did an excellent job keeping us happy and making us feel special. The food was great. Rooms perfectly neat and evident of hosts taking care of all the small details which made the stay at the lodge even more memorable. The game drive/feeding the animals was the most unforgettable experience ever.

'n Wonderlike langnaweek weg. Pragtige omgewing en 'n pragtige lodge.

Ons kan net met lof praat oor ons naweek weg by Shikwari Bush Lodge. Pragtige omgewing en pragtige lodge. Gerieflik en vriendelike diens. Elke maaltyd was 'n feesmaal en smaaklik voorberei.

Vriendelike diens, lekker kos en mooi omgewing.

Vriendelike diens, lekker kos en mooi omgewing. Die kamers is pragtig en goed toegerus. Die gebrek aan sleutels vir die kamers laat ons as Suid-Afrikaners ongemaklik voel. Die stoepgedeelte van die lodge was redelik stowwerig toe ons daar aangekom het. Alhoewel daar verbouiings was verwag mens dat dit steeds skoon sal wees as hulle gaste aanvaar.
