A wonderful place where you can enjoy the pilanesberg. The hotel is nested on a small hill facing the bush where you can see wild animals during the all day from your terrace. The restaurant is marvelous, a great service, and cherry on the cake the private pool on your own terrace facing the bush... One advice: book at least... More

Dear Christophe, I am so happy you enjoyed your stay at Tshukudu Lodge - yes one night is not long enough - one cannot enjoy the lodge and the surrounds in just one day - but it is a good start - we are very fortunate to have a watering hole in front of the lodge - this brings the... More

This was my second visit to Tshukudu. I took my daughter as a birthday present to see what a true safari was all about. Neither of us were disappointed in any way. The food was five star. The rooms very clean and comfortable. The view from my room was spectacular. I could see animals headed to the watering hole or... More

Our stay at Tshukudu was incredible! The lodges are hidden discreetly among the trees on a hill. Very private with stunning views of the watering hole and savannah below. Each lodge has it's own deck with sun loungers and we spent hours soaking up the sights and sounds of the bush. Game watching from the bathtub was awesome! Little special... More

We stayed 2 nights as a group of 6 couples for a special trip to Sun City. It was the perfect ending to a great holiday. The rooms were all lovely (though get a suite if you can afford it as there is more room). We saw some fantastic animal sightings. The food was delicious and the staff couldn't do... More

Took my husband there for his birthday. We have done many safaris and can be a little hard to please !

There is not a single fault to the whole set up. From the start, which was the pick up at Sun City, to the check in process that was arranged so well. They transfer to the lodge was an experience in itself. The steps at the lodge are a minor (very minor!) inconvenience, but when you enter the chalet, you'll... More

Nice venue, friendly team, excellent food, exceptional view from the rooms and diner room. Get ready for more than 100 steps when you move in and out (it keeps you in good shape). It is easy to access from Johannesburg, I recommend this place if you don't have time for a long SA trip.
