My husband and I stayed at Tshukudu for four nights with another couple. We are all experienced travellers and have tried and loved many different experiences around the world but never a Safari before trying Tshukudu. I really can't speak highly enough of General Manager Shawn, her team, and our entire experience at Tshukudu. The experience is completely immersive -... More

It's the most idyllic place to be, the middle of the bush, no technology, just nature all around. Views are stunning! The lodges were so romantic, and the sunken bath tub was too wonderful! it also over looked the watering hole so the view from the tub was just as perfect as the view from the balcony. We couldn't believe... More

Our three night stay at Tshukudu was the most amazing experience! Morning and evening game drives, fantastic food, exquisite service and a room with a view where you can watch zebras, wildebeests, impala and more as they visit the watering hole by the Lodge. Three nights was the perfect amount of time as we were able to see so many... More

Have been lucky enough to live in the wilds of Botswana for years and so deprecating of the likes of Pilanesberg - until I visited recently. It's wonderful with some great game and wondrous volcanic scenery. And Tshukudu couldn't be more perfect. Small, private, personal with the very highest of standards. The views are extraordinary. The game drives and chitchat... More

This is a very friendly, personalised lodge with great staff, great food and very private. Quality rooms, no kids, and great game drives. I really enjoyed my two nights at the lodge and was sorry to leave. Great setting too.

My partner and I spent one night at Tshukudu and definitely loved the location. Limited numbers and intimate, the individual rooms are built within the slopes of a small Koppie / Hill. Room sizes on the smaller side but are well appointed and comfortable. The main dining area which leads out to open bar and verandah overlooks a large expansive... More

Excellent food, drinks, and service, we especially appreciated the private honeymoon dinner and champagne served in our room the last night. It was a wonderful touch. We loved the balcony with its view of the animals at the watering hole in the distance. We can't say enough about the game drives and our guide, Luke. He was very personable and... More

This was the best holiday we had in a long time. I will never forget the time we spend here. The walks in the morning with the Cheetahs and Caracal was unforgettable. The food, our room the staff, everything was absolutely outstanding! I will go back anytime. Richard was our game ranger and he did a wonderful job. Nothing was... More

My fiancé and I traveled to South Africa to elope and exchange vows in this beautiful country. Our first stop was Tshukudu and I must say it really set some high standards for the rest of our vacation. The lodge couldn't have been more perfect and romantic with its little private cottages and stunning views of the mountains and valleys... More

We arrived at Bakubung around 1pm where we were collected by our guide Luke who transferred us to Tshukudu. We were warmly greeted by Simon and offered a cool drink and a snack before our afternoon game drive. We were there for two nights and it was a wonderful experience. The accommodation was just lovely the food tasty and well... More
