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.

This was a great outing, which started with high-tea at the lodge and end with sun downers on the banks of a dam occupied by a pod of Hippos. We was a pride of Lions and were privileged to hear the male roar. We were privileged to see multiple sightings of Rhino in the their natural habitat. A great reserve... More

This was my last day in Africa and I saw some cool stuff... but this was one huge disappointment. The first thing the guide said was there was no longer a walk with the cheetahs and that our walk in the game reserve was going to be short. With all the joking in this culture, I thought he was kidding..... More

Nice breakfast, very early start (6:15 am), but we did not actually walk with the cheetah. Yet, we could stroke a cheetah and a leopard which was awesome!

one night was pent here during our time in the Kruger area, and this was our bit of luxury, nice cabins in the grounds which you got escorted to after dark, with the sand swept every day so you could see the tracks in the morning, excellent game drives at dawn and dusk with a very knowledgeable guide (despite him...

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
