With apologies to Lou Reed for plagerising...but it's what we did... we took a walk on the wild side... with the cheetahs. The Tshukudu Lodge has 3 wild cheetahs - 2 brothers and 1 sister - roaming the reserve and the highlight of the early morning game drive was our hour and a half-long walk with the 2 male cheetahs....

Thomby and her brothers are one of the reasons to come in this private game reserve. She is a very friendly cheetah that sometimes comes with you during the bush walk in the morning. But everything in this lodge is amazing starting from the game drives you have during your stay. Their rangers are well prepared. We had Matt who... More

I had the absolute pleasure of staying 3 nights at this lodge in August, 2014. They provided absolutely everything I could have imagined, and did it with a smile too. The staff is enthusiastic about their work, which they have an overwhelming passion for. The accommodations are extremely comfortable, and coolers well stocked. The game staff will take you out...

Second time that I visit the lodge. This time we went for morning walk (with cheetahs), breakfast, morning game drive and lunch. Very nice combination for a reasonable price. Food, atmophere, guides, cheetahs, Everything was excellent.

Matt was our guide and it was hard not to share the love he has for his job and the surrounding animals, which left... More

Loved this lodge. The caring for the wildlife is just wonderful and the lodge itself is a home away from home. Highlight for myself was Peanut the tame but wild bush baby that came to sit on my shoulder and say hello at dinner! The sighting and hearing lions roar at close range on Game Drive was incredible.Wonderful service and... More
