At your hotel

Tshukudu Bush Lodge stands high on a hilltop in the middle of Pilanesberg National Park. The malaria-free park is home to a huge and diverse array of wildlife, including Africa's Big Five. Visitors can play “nature's alphabet” as they try to spot animals from aardvark to zebra. The Bushveld landscape is impressive, too: thickly forested ravines, rocky ridges, broad grasslands, undulating hills, and a large central lake that is a hotspot for game activity.

Game drives are offered twice daily, weather permitting. Game walks led by experienced field guides can also be arranged depending on the season. Both are included in the room rate.

Other activities include a braai (barbecue) under the starry sky.

Tshukudu Bush Lodge leaves roads and traffic behind; secure parking is provided at the Bakubung Lodge, with complimentary transfer (20-minute ride).
