Our first time staying in a game lodge and Tshukuda doesn't disappoint. You arrive at the sister resort and wait for a driver to collect in the game lodge vehicles which then is a 15 minute ride in the park which you start to see animals all around. Check in is painless and your rooms are large tree houses. No...

We loved it here. It's pretty much right in the middle of Pilanesberg, with a panoramic, elevated view over a large plain and watering hole which is full of wildlife. Our suite with plungepool was the perfect setting to while away the afternoons before the evening safari. Mel our safari host genuinely enjoyed imparting her knowledge of the park and...

Hi there, It was great hosting you both and am ecstatic that you had such a special time with us - and that Mel looked after you well. The view from lodge is always breathtaking but you need to get past the stairs first. We are very lucky and privileged to be able to share the lodge and the animals...

This is our third time back over the last 6 years, the second being when we got married at the lodge. But i'm going to rave about this last trip - it was just as fabulous and awesome as the last 2 stays. Aside from seeing the most awesome game sightings, one of which was a lion kill!, thanks to...

We spent 2 amazing days in this great spot! Thanks to our ranger, Shane, we had incredible game drives and a real bush experience. He really makes the difference. I will definitely recommend this accommodation.

My wife and I just finished 3 nights at Tshukudu, and we only wish it could have been longer. Tshukudu is an incredibly beautiful place, but the animals and the scenery were only outshined by the first rate staff that is up there. Everyone we came in contact with gave phenomenal service and were genuinely friendly. The accommodations are very...

As a couple who truly love the bush and have been going for years to enjoy the wild, we treated ourselves to this beautiful bush experience. I can only say its one of the best decisions we ever made. We were able to enjoy every minute of our chalet and the lodge in absolute luxury and comfort, but still very...

I've stayed at many safari lodges in South Africa and other countries and I can safely say that Tshukudu is well up there with the best. Whilst not on a large private concession it is on its own small private area, and we were fortunate to find a pride of 11 lions prowling across it; being private, we had exclusive...

Being our first visit to SA we are so grateful that we went to Pilansberg for our main game viewing experience.
