Tshukudus web site says: Renowned for the re-introduction of orphaned animals to the wild, it offers guests the rare opportunity of interacting with animals on a special morning walk.
Before booking we wanted confirmation so when we asked if Tshukudu walked with lions as advertised we were told:
'Our lion cubs ain't cubs any more so unfortunately we only walk with the Cheetahs now. There are 3 named Mtombi, Floppy and Hunter'.
Just before the walk we were informed that the cheetahs had made a kill and probably not want to walk. We went ahead with the walk beliveing that there was a posiibilitie that would join us.
We drove 65 kilometres for this experiance and were very disappionted that it was not to be!
In fact we were staying next to Motswari Lodge where we could have gone on a bush walk without getting up at 4am and driving 65k
The bush walk turned out to be a short stroll along a dirt road with a detour to see a ex-zoo hippo in a dam. Hardly a wild experience. Breakfast was unremarkable.
When we complained we were offered no apolygies and no refund partail or other wise. I felt we should have been given the opprtunity to cancel if the cheetahs were feeling un cooperative. A total waste of time and money.More
