Excellent lodge with friendly staff particularly the safari guides who went out of their way to ensure we saw good game. Delicious home cooked food. Very comfortable rooms. Was not busy when we visited so had the place almost to ourselves so felt very spoilt with private game drives!

Well the owner needs to upgrade his place. Our room was clean and spotless, meaning it was not the staff but the owner that needs to sort out his place to match its status. The staff works really hard to maintain the place but its worn out, as clean as it is the rooms need a face lift literally. Check... More

I can tell tourists that this lodge and this safari experience was one of the best. The ladies working in the lodge were so loving and kind. The cooking and food menu was excellent. The huts where we stayed at night were very accommadating, modern in style, efficient! Just remember to take the right adapter plugs for south africa if... More

For a 5 star lodge I do not expect to have the following sort of problems: 1) Faulty bedside lamps. 2) Bathroom light not working at all. ( staff were aware of it.) 3) Hair dryer was a 2 prong but no adapters. 4) Bar fridge but not stocked. When we asked they said if we wanted drinks we should... More

What a treat Tshwene Lodge was. My friend who is visiting from Australia took me there as an early birthday where we could spend quality time catching up. From the moment we were met at the Main Gate, we were looked after by Solomon and the wonderful team. Our game drives were great - we even got to see an... More

Stayed in Tshwene for 2 nights and liked it very much. From the gate it's a 45 min drive to the lodge what gives you a first drive through the park. The lodge consists out of 4 areas. The boma, Swimming pool/deck, Main lodge and Tv area. All are very nice and cosy. Maybe not the most luxurious of all... More

We were very impressed from the moment we were collected at the main gate, until we left. We were treated to impeccable service, great game drives with funny and knowledgeable ranger Solomon, fantastic meals, and wonderful accommodation. A special thank you to Ezekiel, Solomon and Sina and her team. We look forward to returning.

My daughter and I spend the weekend at this property and had a wonderful time. Fantastic food created by Laptop (the chef's actual name...:) ), attentive and graceful staff always looking to please the guests. While the lodge is actually not top luxury, is what one comes to expect from an African Safari: well appointed, cozy and with good local... More
