Great African Safari Experience

Posted Oct 24, 2013
Pros: Great view, excellent service, intimate
Cons: Nothing
We visited the lodge in early October with our 21-year-old son. The lodge sits on a hill overlooking a valley and a waterhole. The atmosphere is luxuriously wild and intimate. There are six guest cottages, a nice veranda, a fire pit area and a swimming pool. The view is spectacular. We saw 50 to 80 wild animals in the valley below the lodge at any given time. Impala, zebra, wildebeest, giraffe, kudu, chimpanzee and others were seen. The routine at the lodge is to get up at dawn have a cup of coffee and then go on a game drive. Ralf did a fantastic job of showing us all kinds of animals on the game drives. We saw lions, rhinos, chimpanzee, giraffe, crocodile, hippos, birds, impala, kudu, and many more. They serve you a great breakfast after the morning drive. The mid day is free for reading swimming or lounging. The evening game drive is cool because you get to see lots of animals after dark. The food, drink and hospitality at the lodge is first rate. If I go back, I plan to arrive in time for the evening game drive, probably spend two nights and might even bring a large party to rent the whole place. There is no where to exercise except going up and down the stairs. Overall a spectacular place that is highly recommended.

Awesome Safari Lodge

Posted Oct 23, 2013 on Hotels.com
Our room was clean , comfortable and attractive. view from our balcony was spectacular! Every staff member was highly professional and made us feel safe while so near to lions, rhinos, hippos and elephants. the food was quite delicious and plentiful. Staff was informative, friendly and always eager to help. I hated to leave and will always have fond memories of Tshukudu Lodge.

Tranquil and Friendly Stay in Pilanesberg

Posted Aug 6, 2013
Pros: The isolated location and fantastic view over a water hole.
Location: Located in the center of Pilanesberg. Sun City is near by but nothing in the area beats Tshukudu's game drives and tranquil rest.
Our stay at Tshukudu was quiet, restful, friendly, and informative. The staff is well established, knowing both Pilanesberg and the lodge well. Their knowledge and investment into Pilanesberg provided us with a neat insight. The enjoyable food was prepared by a chef that loves what he does.

Do not stay at this place!

Posted Feb 26, 2011 on Hotels.com
$500 was taken from my bag when being delivered to the car at check out and we were the only guests in the camp the manager took no responsibility for the situation. She did not ask any questions or file a stolen items report or ask her staff what happened. As far as I know she could have been in on the scam because it took her a really long time to show up to pick us up once we sent our bags down so they had time to go through our stuff and take anything they wanted.

It was an amazing lodge... and we travel a lot.

Fantastic. That's about all I can say. Make sure Zander is your ranger. Chef Nicholas is great and clearly takes great pleasure in preparing interesting meals for the guests.

We had a wonderful stay in Tshukudu. We were there for 3 nights in the end of July. The game drives were terrific - saw the Big 5 and much, much more. The game guides were skilled, the food fabulous, and the environment was peaceful. I'd go back in a heartbeat!
