Our tour guide Steven was very informative and interesting. My girlfriend and I had a very relaxed half day tour in a small vehicle which was able to get off road and into some tight areas. We saw four of the big five on this particular safari. Would highly recommend this as a tour although we didn't stay at the... More

We did four game drives on private reserves during our time in the Kruger region as well as doing a game drive in Kruger itself and this was by far our favourite (although they were all excellent). Richard was a fabulous guide who knew all of the animals we saw personally and therefore we got to understand the natures of... More

We carefully reviewed the cheetah program at Tshukudu before we booked for a morning cheetah walk. We wanted to be sure that the reserve was genuinely committed to their cheetah program and that it wasn't one of those "canned" predator establishments. We found Tshukudu to be an inspiring place with staff truly passionate about their wildlife conservation projects. They gave... More

Tshukudu Game Lodge is situated 5 km outside of Hoedspruit. If you want an African Safari experience without the horrendous cost, then this is for you. Up-close interaction with animals. Big 5 on the property. The resident Cheetah's are a huge attraction. Clean , comfortable rooms. Aircon. Swimming Pool and Game Drives-and -walks. Friendly service , great Rangers.

This was a real experience to be able to pet a wild cheetah. Our rangers were absolutely excellent, very informative, very professional and we felt safe with them. Would love to do it again.

What a beautiful place to visit. Complete with swimming pool and individual cabins to sleep in, youll find the people there friendly and welcoming. You'll also get the chance to be up close with Ntombi the tame leopard who will quite happily sit and be fussed. The trips on the jeep out into the reserve are fantastic and its clear... More
