Good friendly service. The food was typical boma fare but adequate and tasty. We stayed in chalet No 9 which was very comfortable with covered patio. The Lodge is close to the town of Hoedspruit which is clean and safe (we are from Joburg!) Good shops and places to eat. Many places of interest to visit in the area. We... More

We have been to Tsukudu 3 times now and the place never disappoints. We stayed in one of the refurbished rondavels and it exceeded expectations - good value for money compared with the other "private" game reserves. By its very nature the lodge is not teeming with wildlife as its fenced off with the Kruger but you will not get... More

Had a very quick work trip to Tshukudu, and really exceeded my expectations (as it is rated three stars and for the bed and breakfast price, in comparison to other game lodges). Did not get to go on a game drive but on the short drive in and out the camp saw giraffe, buffalo and impi's. Comfortable resort with big... More

Our stay at Tshukudu Game Lodge was our first step in our trip to the SA wildlife. This was the right choice. We were guided by JP, a young and passionate ranger, who spent the 24 hours with us, explaining us the bush, its fauna, flora and landscape, sharing his passion for wildlife. We had a early morning walk in... More

For the amount of money paid the accomodation is pathetic, either reduce your price or upgrade the facilities. For the rest food and game drives, the experience is the best we have had, Matt our ranger is exeptional really good temperment loves his job and very knowledgable, all the cooks fantastic personalities and good food and enough food.

The staff were very accommodating and did everything that they could to make our stay enjoyable. the game drives and walks were very professionally organised and the guides/rangers were very knowledgable about both game and the bush in general.

My review is very old as it dates back nearly 28 years which is the last time I visited South Africa. It was originally to see my Grandmother who lived near Durban- and also to visit other relatives and take the Blue Train, as my pre wedding holiday ..

We spent 4 wonderful days in this lodge, and our guide Shadrack was very interesting and experienced. We loved the cheetahs even if none of them was at the lodge, we met them in the bush (one had just killed a young impala). Watching the porcupines eating at night was fun! We will remember the lions roaring with the car... More

My advise: no need to go to that miserable place when you are so close to Kruger park. You will see much more and get a higher standard of services inside. Tshukudu people are greedy, mean and scornful. Transportation: We had to pay 1400R for transfert from Nelspruit to the lodge. No one advised us about this high amount out... More
