What a lovely place to stay was made to feel very welcome by the people there, our ranger was very informative and answered all questions. I personally have the cheetah interaction as my holiday highlight.

I had the opportunity to stay at Tshukudu as a part of a group students. Our guide, David, first welcomed us to the camp and we dispersed to our bungalows. For being in the middle of the African bush, the accommodations were wonderful and included air conditioning, running water and house keeping. The group then met up at the communal... More

Special thanks for David and his team for a wonderful time at Tshukudu bush Camp. The room and the communal area was well kept and clean and the staff worked with commitment to make our stay pleasant. David's deep knowledge of nature make the bush come live - both in big and small ways! Worthwhile to visit!

All I have to say is that I thoroughly enjoyed my recent stay here, the accommodation is good with everything that you need. The staff and facilities are very good. I would recommend this to anyone that likes wildlife and getting up close and personal.

Apart from the great food and comfortable room we got a complimentary book with the story of the founders and owners of the farm. A great true story that should be made a movie. We have visited quite a couple of places that offerred a trip... More

Rustic accommodations, so not for everyone but the Bush Lodge is available for those who want more pampering. We found our room to be quite comfortable, even thought it wasn't exactly spotless. Tshukudu was a welcome change from Kruger and fighting cars for game viewing space but I only wish we could have spent more time each day viewing. It... More

Its not easy to find a self catering place in the reserves based around Kruger and this one is really a gem in my view. I must say I like Kruger itself most, but we usually combine our visit with some of the neighbouring places and this one was the best we have found so far. If the animals are... More

Stayed here in September with my children, a truly wonderful experience. Very clean accommodation, fantastic safari drives, great spotting. the owner, David, is one of the most knowledgeable guides you will encounter, he really cares for the wider environment too. We would definitely visit again.

This is a great bush experience guided by a professional and knowledgeable ranger David. If you are looking for a realistic way of getting a close-up experience with the big five, without breaking the bank, then this is the place for you. Family oriented, and geared up to those who are both experienced in the bush or for a first... More
