In one day at Tshukudu, we saw lions on a game drive and got to pet a caracal, cheetah, and leopard. This place is a must visit if you like big cats. We also saw plenty of other game. It's an amazing place not to be missed.

We did the "walk with the big cats" which included a walk with two male cheetahs, a visit with the leopards, and the most informative bush walk we have experienced in the three years we have been doing safari's. We did not stay at the lodge, so can't comment on the accommodations. The walk with the big cats, however, was... More

Went on a Big Cat Walk with two cheetahs. We got to pet them, be really close with them. The climbed trees, played with each other, saw them running, not at their top speed but close enough. We did not stay at the lodge, just went for the cat walk so I cannot say anything about the accomodation.

We did this as part of our stay at Nyati Lodge. We did a game drive, which involve a lot of of the road driving to get close to animals etc. We did get very close to a family of lions.

The accommodations and staff were nice. The food was good with an exceptional kitchen staff and chef who cooks the best desserts! We saw a mother leopard and her two male cubs that made the whole stay exceptional. This place is really trying to make your stay a good one. It is evident in all they are doing, Good place... More

As a full time wheelchair user I have found it difficult sometimes to transfer into specialised Safari vehicles. Here they went out of their way to make sure I could get into the front seat of the Landrover. One of the staff literally lifted me clear of my chair and into the front seat. I am not a lightweight but... More

The morning walk we had with friends was very disappointing. Not because we didn't see any animals but because the rangers we not clear. We didn't feel welcome and we had know idea of the program, There were no cheetah's, and the rangers not guided us well. They give us not the idea that we were guests. Overall we had... More

We visited Tshukudu Game Lodge one afternoon to try to see the big five. Unfortunately, we saw no lions or leopards but we had to come in close contact with two cheetahs.
