I do not recomend it to anyone. Problem is not in the camp. The probvlem comes, what you contract and what you find there. Mike send me Shiduli Lodge picture, but later spoke about Chisomo River Lodge, and my Family and me finalized in Chisomo Camp.
They are using Kuruger name!!?? I do not know why?? Kruger Park is something Fantastic; but this is an open zoo only.
It is most unfortunate to receive a review like this as the client has not been in touch with us to complain. However that said I would like to try explain our side of the story.
The client came to see me at our offices and it was considered a last minute booking as he wanted to travel on the 27 December 2015 and he gave me only a few weeks to arrange the entire trip including flights. December i... Read mores peak season and there was no availability inside the Kruger Park.
Initially the client sent an enquiry for a tented lodge and I then managed to secure a safari for him at Chisomo Lodge which forms part of the same reserve as Shiduli Game Lodge. The safari included a private pick up for him in Pretoria as well as a drop off at the Hoedspruit airport on the last day including flights back to Johannesburg.
Chisomo is certainly not in the Kruger Park and I never claimed it to be, as it is a Private Reserve near Hoedspruit. I did send the client information regarding the trip and he was aware that the booking was at Chisomo.
It is with regret that the safari did not live up to the family's expatiations and I apologise for any miss communication or miss conception the client had regarding the trip.
The lesson learnt for me is to make sure the clients understands exactly what they are getting when they book and pay for a trip.
