Tshukudu Bush Lodge
Tshukudu Bush Lodge is the "Place of the Rhino".

Nestled against the side of a hill surrounded by the mountains of the Pilanesburg National Park, overlooking a waterhole and savannah plain, lies one of the most well-known Pilanesburg lodges - Tshukudu Bush Lodge.

Tshukudu Bush Lodge is one of Africa’s most romantic game lodges, nestled within the remains of an extinct volcano where game traverse the plain below. Big Five sightings are the norm rather than the exception when travelling with the field guides, or on your own. Each custom designed chalet offers a romantic sunken bath, an open plan lounge and bedroom, a fireplace and private balcony. Tshukudu is known for its five star service, bushveld experience, the quality of its field guides and uniqueness of its African inspired cuisine.

With some of the best luxury accommodation, Tshukudu Bush Lodge is one of the best bush experiences in South Africa

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.
 Reviewed by Anton van der Watt over a year ago

Excellent, really enjoyed it!
 Reviewed by Jaco Folscher over a year ago

The place was luxurious - the food was amazing and the game drives were excellent.
 Reviewed by Krista Larson over a year ago

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.
