We did not stay here, but did 2 Game Drives. Both guides seemed to love what they were doing, and knew a vast amount about their reserve and the animals in it. They did their level best to make sure that we saw and experienced as much as possible.

Visited this lodge about 12+ years ago, and loved it then and now! Friendly family business with good accomodation and food! Guides are warm passionate and eager to teach you about their lodge and wildlife. Highlight is the walk you can do with 2 male cheetah cubs, I had the pleasure of meeting up close and personal their mother 12+... More

The Managers were pretty rude on arrival and even though we paid for a bush walk we didn't actually walk through the bush as we couldn't find the cheetah we were going to walk with.... So we did a mini safari as we had run out of time due to looking for the cheetah for so long... A little disappointing... More

We visited Tshukudu Game Lodge on the 15th March 2015 for a game drive. It was such a lovely and worth while drive. We saw four of the big 5 and a few other animals. The drive was a bit long, but with all the animals seen it was worth it! The friendliness of the staff and food available was... More

My kids enjoyed the interaction that is offered with animals that have been rehabilitated especially walking with the Cheetahs was a mind blowing experience

We were taken here for afternoon tea which was beautifully served in a splendid location. We the joined Matt for a game drive. What an experience. So much better than Kruger. Talk about off road, he threaded the jeep through the eye of a needle. we had to duck down to avoid the branches but he always warned us. He... More

I have been going to Tshukudu for the past 11 years, I am never disappointed with friendliness and service of the staff. Beautiful scenery and just an all around peacefulness, surrounded by the big five what more could one ask for!

This place is awesome. I haven't been to any other lodges, but this certainly was a treat! The rooms were great, clean and lovely. The atmosphere was relaxing. The safari guides were knowledgeable and when we got there we had seen all of the big 5, except for the lion - they helped us find the lion and it was... More

We only did an afternoon drive through the Game Reserve and we loved it. many thanks to Deon, an excellent guide. Deon taught us a lot and answered all our questions. We are very sorry we couldn`t spend more time in the reserve. Nevertheless we saw lions eating a giraffe right next to the road, the cheetahs eating an impala,... More

Everything is very well arranged and all personnel was professional and willing to share their knowledge. As you have lunch and dinner with your guide and your group it's easy and natural to make new friends.
