Traveller Reviews

  • Tshukudu Lodge is such an amazing place.

    Anne Pflimlin, March 2012
  • Game drives viewing, wild life safari experience and the unspoiled nature. The evening viewing of Lions crossing the road in front of our eyes and passing close to our open cover car was the climax, frankly we were bit shivering if Lions were hungry!, we were speechless and breathless!.

  • The highlight for us was our stay at Tshukudu Game Lodge. Words can't say what a great time we had there. Simply amazing!

"Tshukudu means 'Place of the Rhino', and is really one of the Pilanesberg's most intimate, luxurious lodges. There is a climb of 132 steps to the top, but the views are worth it!"
