Delicious breakfasts and lunches featuring fresh Pan African flavours are served in the main building or on the deck. Dinner is a sumptuous candlelit affair in various enchanting settings in the lodge. The cuisine at Shiduli is a celebration of senses - a feat of innovative flavours overseen by the award winning Head Chef. Boma dinners under the African sky are often ended by traditional dancing - a tribute from the staff to guest.

The 24 intimate air-conditioned en-suite rooms at Shiduli feature rich, earthly tones and aromatic timber. The huge romantic beds fitted with crisp white linen are swathed in flowing mosquito nets under the canopy of a thatch roof.

The rich African toned bathrooms have glass enclosed revitalizing showers with double wash basins.

Take pleasure in the prolific bird activities and animals that visit the garden from your verandah whilst sipping a cocktail.

The Royal Suite, which exudes unsurpassed luxury and elegance, lies tucked away a short distance from the main lodge. The interior of the suite with its kingsized bed, lounge and heavy wooden furniture reflects a grand colonial ambiance.
