We saw the BIG FIVE on our first safari. Our Guide Shadrack was most helpful, friendly and very knowledgeable. The cheetahs were an added bonus,a truly unforgettable experience. I am shocked to read of their breeding program with their lions. The chalet was reasonably priced, clean and comfortable . The meals were great, especially the sumptuous breakfast. Dolly,the waitress, was... More

Just spent a lovey time at Tshukudu. This is our second visit. Lovely sighting, enjoyable meals, Andrew our guide was wonderful, just a shame that our check in was way below par. The managing director/receptionist needs to go on a public relations course on how to deal with clients.

Tshukudu was the third lodge on our list during our travels in South Africa. On arrival there was no one present to greet us, in fact there was no one to be seen at all. After pushing the bell on the reception for a few minutes someone arrived to check us in. She showed us around the lodge and then... More

Very good family Lodge for both small and big groups, great animal encounters, game drives and bush walks, with first class food, very good and well informed guides. Dinners around the fire, and lunch near the pool.

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
