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

The most informative game drives we have been on in South Africa. Far superior to the many other Game Reserves we have visited. The morning walks were an adrenalin rush, being so close to the animals. It is like being in a zoo, without cages, can be scary. Food is very good and plentiful. Beds are extremely comfortable. Staff are... More

An adventure not to be missed. The lodge has a few high class rooms and stylish Glamping tents which we stayed in. Being of retired age the camp style accommodation is well worth the experience with en-suite bathrooms,refrigerator and other necessities. Food is typical served African style in local surroundings. The game drive superb with knowledgeable rangers who drive into... More

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.
