Memorable trip in South Africa! Our trip to South Africa would not have been the same without Shikwaru Adventures! Federica went out of her way to make our trip a memorable one. We were extremely happy with the Safari at Kruger! We saw the big 5 and many more animals. We can’t wait to go back and visit other places with them in South Africa!

South Africa - Johannesbourg and Kruger Park What an amazing vacation in South Africa! We started in Johannesburg where we visited several nearby attractions (cultural villages, elephant sanctuary, Apartheid museum) and we continued to Kruger Park where we had the most amazing experience doing safaris. Federica, the guide,had a vast knowledge about the culture, fauna and flora of the country and she was always available to accommodate our requests and make our journey even greater. We will definitely contact Shikwaru again for tours in other countries. Totally recommended for couples. friends and families with children!

Fantastic Team We had a purely magical experience of South Africa with Fede and Ruan ! Our trip was perfectly organized and ran smoothly from the first to the last day. They both went out of their way to share their profound love and knowledge of this magnificent place my 9 year old. We were so inspired that we are coming back for more in January 2020!

Best Travel Experience to date Ruan and Federica by far have been the best tour guides I have ever had. Their knowledge and experience made our trip better than we expected and I still talk about this holiday today, 5 years later. If you want to not only create an amazing travel experience but friends that have kept in touch over the years, then highly recommended Ruan and Federica to take you on an amazing journey.
