Shikwari is a beautiful, grand, unpretentious old lodge with scattered en suite rooms on the property. It is owned and run by a couple and their adult daughter. The room was attractive and very comfortable and the meals were quite delicious. We found it to be an absolutely ideal spot for a drive along the Panorama route as far as Graskop. The drive up the mountain is simply stunning and we were happy to do it twice. We also really enjoyed a day in Kruger, but it was a bit of driving (an hour and 15 minutes each way). Recommend booking the Kruger fee in advance and bringing plenty of food as the options we found weren't great (Ann can provide tips, but write them down!). We enjoyed sharing meals with other guests and also the times we were the only people there!
