Tshukudu where exclusivity is assured covers 3800ha of prime Bushveld and is situated close to Hoedspruit in the Limpopo Province.
Each of the spacious air-conditioned chalets/rondawels/family units/luxury tents are named after the raised and rehabilitated animals of Tshukudu.

Buffet style breakfasts and light lunches are served on the thatched veranda and showcase South African dishes prepared from fresh local ingredients. Evening buffet dinners are often enjoyed seated around a roaring fire in the African Boma, under the stars. Traditional venison dishes also feature on this authentic South African menu.
Recliners under a canopy of thatch beckon guests to enjoy shady relaxation around the pool, which is also a prime vantage point for game viewing.
