We were recently day visitors to Tshukudu Game Lodge. On our arrival at Reception there were nobody present to welcome us. The security guard at the Entrance Gate from the Main Road treated us with more courtesy and friendliness than the Boss Lady herself. Being in the hospitality business ourselves for more than 30 years it is a basic Hospitality... More

Stayed in a comfortable Rondavel. Comfy, clean, well appointed. You can hear the animals at night, really lovely. Food was great, some slightly experimental courses at times but on the whole we enjoyed it. Great time walking with the Cheetahs, they have 3, to address the negative points below we understood that currently the sister is awaiting relocation and so... More

This was my first time to the country and first ever safari and I couldn't have asked for a better experience! Coming from Australia, going on safari is a once in a lifetime experience and I had an idea in my head of what it would be like to go on safari which was definitely delivered at Tshukudu. I actually... More

Tsukudu game lodge has been the worst experience during our trip in south africa. If you love nature and wildlife , don’t come here ! Let’s start with the cheetahs who are the main reason to come here for most of the visitors. Before booking, we asked if the cheetahs were wild ans the answer has been « the cheetahs... More

The rooms are not so lovely as in other Game Parcs, but Game viewing is nice. Our Ranger explained a lot and did a very good job. However, the comfort and well beeing of the guests did not appear the primery focus of the rest of the staff.

What an amazing place! Excellent and friendly service from the Management right through to the Gate Guard. Real African warm hospitality. Our room was perfectly private, sparkling clean and comfortable. The food was 5 star. The Game Ranger literally walked the extra mile to show us from the big five to the smallest animals and told us interesting details about... More

I am a repeat guest but took my mother and my two and a half year old child for their first experience of Tshukudu. It was heart breaking to see the effects of the drought.
