Fantastic memories of Tshukudu LodgePosted Mar 3, 2015
We stayed at the Lodge in December 2014 for 2 nights. What an amazing experience. The game drives were fantastic. Our guide Shawn was very good and we were lucky enough to see Lions , Elephants, Giraffe, Leopards and Jackals. I cant recommend the game drives enough. The rooms were lovely and the service was good. Loved that all the drinks in the mini bar are free. Highly recommend Tshukudu and will treasure our memories from our time there.

Excellent bush lodge overlooking plain and waterhoPosted Nov 28, 2014
Pros: Beautiful location. Excellent rooms. Great staff.
Location: LocTed on a ridge looking over a waterhole and plain. Gold courses, casino and restaurants in Sun City about 20 minutes away
A truly wonderful experience from start to finish. Beautiful location, superb service and unforgettable game drives. Luke, our ranger, made sure that he passed on his passion for the wildlife in the park and was also a superb host along with Shawn.

Pros: There are only a few cottages so we felt so spoilt on our honeymoon! The game drives were awesome thanks to Shawns knowledge and 18 yrs experience
Location: Beautiful national park
Don't miss this beautiful hotel in your next trip to South Africa. Shawn looks after her guests like we are old friends with old world charm! The food, accommodation and game drives were amazing!

Traumurlaub in der WildnessPosted May 9, 2014
Wir haben einen sehr schönen Aufenthalt erleben können. Eine private schon fast familiäre Atmosphäre in der Tshukudu Lodge. Sehr schöne Zimmer mit persönlichem Komfort und einem sehr aufmerksamen Personal. Das Essen ist sehr gut und es wird auch auf individuelle Wünsche eingegangen. Unsere Pirschfahrten waren toll. Jedoch kann es auch sein, dass man nicht soviel Tiere sehen kann. Joy unsere Begleiterin war im ständigen Austausch mit anderen Fahrern, so dass wir viel sehen konnten; unbeschreiblich die Erlebnisse!

Geweldig!Posted Feb 27, 2014
Voor rust en wilde dieren spotten. Prachtige locatie met geweldig uitzicht, zeer vriendelijk personeel en prima eten. Geen wifi of telefoon, dus even helemaal 'uit de lucht', dat is ook wel eens lekker. Wel iedere keer de 132 trsptreden naar de entree lopen, maar prima te doen.

Great African Safari ExperiencePosted Oct 24, 2013
Pros: Great view, excellent service, intimate
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 LodgePosted 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 PilanesbergPosted 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.
