Ponder the silence by a blazing fire at night and enjoy food of international standard and African flavour accompanied by a wine from our splendid selection.
By day, you can laze by the rock plunge pool.
We find that our guests are most content to spend time at the lodge, drinking in the meditative silence and holding the wide, open plains in awe.
But they never leave without tracking down the Big Five in the Pilanesberg Game Reserve
, on game walks or drives.
This was a very nice experience, the big 5 in a day, while Tshukudu spoil you, well done.
The place was luxurious - the food was amazing and the game drives were excellent.
Staff was excellent and the accommodation first class. Zander is a top rated ranger. Food was world class. Only two negatives albeit small. I had to unplug the fridge at night due to very noisy motor. A small table on the balcony for drinks. Binoculars etc would be welcome. A great place.
