Perfect 4 night stay before Christmas. The food is out of this world, staff very attentive and the chalets are nice and well appointed. Loved the attention to detail. Game drives were very nice and varied. We did a walking safari which was very special. Will definitely go again!

Thank you for a wonderful stay, I would highly recommend this place and suggest booking in advance! A small lodge which makes it so warm and personal. Each room is detached and has a magnificent view of the game park...from the balcony and the bath tub! One morning we woke up for our game drive and the ranger had spotted... More

An amazing lodge which offers fantastic views from your balcony where you can sit and watch the animals heading toward the waterhole. The staff are very friendly and the food and service is second to none. Our ranger, Luke was so knowledgeable and spoke about all our sightings with great passion. We almost cancelled our visit here due to the... More

Great resort, great service,great people and some amazing game viewing. Highly recommended to those who require a non malaria area within easy reach of Johannesburg and close to Sun City. This is a small intimate resort offering luxury chalets and amazing food. A true African experience

Just spent 4 nights at Tshukudu and cannot find fault with anything at all. Excellent friendly staff who could not have made us feel more welcome. Great game drives made all the more enjoyable by Luke's passion and enthusiasm for the wildlife. Excellent food and good selection of wines. Great rooms overlooking the waterhole and plains below.

if you want to live Pilanesberg reserve at full Tshukudu Bush Lodge is the place where you have to be. Immerse in the reserve with breathtaking view lodges, you are pampered from the very beginning of your stay till when, unfortunately, is time to leave. the game drives are really professional and the advantage compared to other lodges is the...

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
