Tshukudu Game Lodge offers a really great experience, enabling you to get as close as possible to wild animals. The rangers are very experienced and are eager to respons to your individual demands. To touch a cheetahs is surely a great experience whereas I found the morning walks with them not very much exciting. I would prefer to have real... More

If you want 4-star hotel comforts in the bush this lodge isn't for you. On the other hand, if you like a comfortable, friendly lodge South African style this may just be one of your better choices. Accommodations are fine, staff are friendly and wildlife is plentiful. Visitors have more freedom than at some other lodges but with that comes... More

We stayed 5 days, had very interresting bushwalks and game-drives with Moses, a wonderfull day in KrugerNP with Dean and Moses und amazing meetings with Ntombi, Hunter an Flobby (Cheetahs). Well - we had good luck to meet those wild animals :-) Everybody did his best for the guests - we enjoyed it very much, to be attended so nicely.

What an amazing experience. The opportunity to get up close and personal to some of Africa's most beautiful animals. Excellent chance of finding big game which may prove elusive in Kruger. Super knowledgable and caring rangers - Matt was a pleasure to meet and experience the park with. Highly recommended.

The stay was great with regard to the game drives and thinks. Also liked the food. However, the room where we stayed can use a makeover! We espicially liked walking with the cheetahs and ofcourse peanut, the bushbaby.

Had a good time, Shadrack was excellent and we learnt lots - many thanks. The room was clean but needs updating. Whilst everyone was friendly we didn't feel that 'we went as guests and left as friends'.

The camp is OK, the breakfast and dinner are good but not 'extra special'. Why MUST B&B guests sit with the guests who are here for game hunts ?? The wild animals in fenced places is not such a good idea..
