The food was excellent and the staff serving it very happy to be there nothing was too much trouble . The early morning walks and... More

We stayed in the lodge for 3 days and made use off the different game drives, morning walks and the lovely lodge area. The rangers are very knowledgable and made it possible to go really close up to Elephants, Chitas, Lions, Giraffe etc. Lovely stay. Can fully recommend

Excellent! Great service, great accommodations and you can tell they really know their animals and care for them. No wonder whenever on ZA I'm always going back to Tshukudu plus visiting other lodges.

We could not have been made more welcome from the moment we arr Fed, really friendly staff, lovely location and great accommodation. The evening meal is a real treat and at times you can hear the lions roar. The game drives and walks are conducted by really knowledgable rangers who are really interested in making sure you have a great... More

Beautiful surroundings and close up wild life. I had heard about Tshukudu Game Lodge years ago and wanted to have the experience while we were in the close vicinity. The Lodge and accommodation was of very good quality. I feel that the staff could have been a little more accommodating and I was slightly disappointed about the experience. At the... More

If you want a great safari experience at an affordable price, come here. The staff is super and will do their best to meet your needs. We got up close to all the animals on the reserve. Matt was our ranger for the four days we were there. He was personable, knowledgeable, and did his best to make our experience... More

Tshukudu offers a unique experience where you can get up close and personal with their resident cheetahs. Our ranger and the wildlife viewings were fantastic, the only let down was the unfriendly management.

Stayed only one night whilst on business. The food selection at meals was very disappointing and little thought was given to preparation and presentation. The rooms are very basic but clean. On the upside I had an amazing game drive in the morning. We got to walk with 2 male cheetahs who were on the hunt and who chased away... More

Staying in the park is very convenient for making several trips into the park during the day. When we went in for our 5:30am drive there were no elephants to be seen but when we went back to the waterhole around 11am there were about 30 around the Kapoor waterhole. Although the Rondavels are advertised as overlooking a waterhole, we... More

The lodges were very well equipped with large bathroom and a nice terrace overlooking the surroundings. The next morning we saw several wild animals near the gate and two cheetah's who came to the lodge to drink... More
