Tshukudu Bush Lodge

Anne Pflimlin

"Tshukudu Lodge is such an amazing place."

Fadi Najjar

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!.
