"I felt like I was traveling with a great friend Federica and had such a great experience. She was so knowledgable about the tribes and cultures.she had such great knowledge of the area and it was so interesting to learn so much information about all the areas and historical information."
"Excellent voyage !! Pays magnifique, organisation et guide au top. I recommend this tour operator"
"Having travelled extensively in East and Southern Africa since 1990, I have experienced good and not so good guides. Without hesitation I can say Federica and Ruan are two of the best guides I have been lucky enough to travel with. Their passion for, and knowledge of, Africa and her wildlife is exceptional and infectious."
"South Africa Rainbow tour was a trip to remember. Our guide Ruan is a great expert in all areas, good driver and a wonderful cook. Seen fantastic nature and heard many beautiful stories from him. The highlight was the big five, he did everything to spot it. Moreover, he is careful with nature."
"What a pleasure to discover Southern Africa with Ruan and Federica ... They know perfectly the fauna, the flora as well as the natives of the crossed countries. Thanks to their knowledge and kindness their have made this trip MAGICAL! I hope to have the chance to meet you again!"
"I've travelled with Ruan to Botswana and Vic Falls, and everything was absolutely perfect, driving the truck, locations, accomodation, giving us all kind of explanations and stories about places, nature, animals and so on! He is really in love with his job and his Country"
"I loved the variety of our tour staying in luxury accommodation right through to camping out on the Delta. Our guide Ruan really knew the country he was showing us and went out of his way to make the most of what turned up unexpectedly such as animal sightings along the roadside and meeting local people."
"Great tour operators who care for the people on the tour and are very friendly. Very knowledgeable guides and love their job and love teaching people about the wilderness. They make you feel welcome with the local communities, and its people. Would recommend them anytime of the day!"
"I was lucky enough to have Ruan and Federica as my guides which turned into friends. Their knowledge of wildlife is top notch as is their enthusiasm to make the trip special. I got to see plenty of wildlife and experience lots of different things. I can honestly say this is one of the best trips I have ever done. Highly recommended."
"It was arranged well from the beginning. The communication was exellent. Our guide, Ruan, was the best. We learned a lot about the nature and animals living in South Africa. Every night we had another sleeping accomodation (since we were travelling around) and each time it was very good."
"Three years ago we’ve been to South Africa with Federica. Everything was so great that we decided to make another trip with her this year, in Southern Namibia this time. Once again, we have muchly appreciated her great professionalism even when difficulties occured, her excellent ideas during all the trip, her tasty cooking"
"Amazing experience, we spent about a week in South Africa with Shikwaru Adventures and everything was amazing. We did 4 days of Safari in Kruger, and visited Blyde Canyon. Federica’s attention was exceptional. We had to change our plans due to the covid outbreak and she was quick and responsive to accomodate and help us"
"Great! I will come back in this beautiful country! You get a great experience and adventure on your trip. You see all the beautiful things and special places . No question is too much. Everything is perfect arranged, they have a big love for their job! You get a unforgettable holiday. Enjoy it!"
"What a great experience our Botswana safari was. Our guides infatuation with the bush and love of the animals was contagious. Their knowledge and respect of the animals was evident in everything they did. Their attention to detail and the way they organized the safari was simply perfect."
"We have lived a unique experience! Thanks to Federica who, being very attentive and hospitable, organized us, helped and accompanied us at all times in this Safari. Everything was perfect and according to our budget. Thanks you Federica!"
"They managed to personalize and attend kindly and efficiently to every need in a highly diverse group of people. They are very knowledgeable, speak five languages, love nature and transmit the affection and love for it in a very competent manner. Can’t wait to go back and visit more. "
"We'll be back for more! We went on a tour of South Africa for two weeks with our guide Federica from Shikwaru Adventures after a friend recommended her to us. She adapted and tailored the tour and the visits according to what we wanted to see. We went for a whole tour of South Africa."
"Unforgettable experience in South Africa! This was my first time in South Africa and it was a vacation that I will never forget. The tour was super well organized and the team very prepared. You feel that they enjoy doing this. I will definitely go back for another tour. I totally recommend them!"
"I have been to Africa a few times BUT this time was very special, due mainly to the wonderful people of Shikwaru Adventures. They organized for me and my 8 year old a magnificent experience. South Africa is in itself a beautiful country. Shikwaru went the extra mile to make it more enjoyable and unforgettable"
"Just what i was looking for. South Africa is a MUST see destination for everybody. Shikwaru Adventures contributed 100% to making this trip an amazing trip.

"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!"
"Shikwaru made our experience in Africa a top 1 and unforgettable trip! Federica, one of the guides made us feel like home since day one. She picked up us in the JNB airport and drove us around the city - it was amazing to get to know Joburg from the eyes of a local. She clearly knew where and how long to take us to each place"
"El tour que nos armó Federica para Krugger, fue espectacular! Todo en hora, súper responsables ! Nos busco un hotel maravilloso frente a la reserva sin tener que pagar miles de dólares ! Súper recomendado!"
"Bonne logistique...pour 15 jours d aventures en "Namibie ...guide Federica très professionelle...chauffeur Dewald très pro également A recommander +++"
