"This is my third time to Shikwaru ... We stayed in Rafiki which is next to the main lodge. The entire experience at Shikwaru brings a whole new meaning to fresh air and relaxation. Great family place. The accommodations are wonderful, the food is outstanding, and the scenery is fabulous. You can hunt, fish, go on safari, golf.... And you are supporting an amazing ministry at the same time."
