About Tshukudu Game Lodge
Situated on five thousand hectares of pristine Africa Bush, Tshukudu Private Game Reserve is the ideal location to experience Africa’s Big Five. With the breathtakingly beautiful Drakensberg mountain’s on the horizon, the abundance of wild game, an astonishing variety of bird species, family style hospitality, luxurious accommodation, Tshukudu is the place to “reach out and touch, and let Africa touch you”
Established by Lolly and Ala Sussens in the early 1980’s, and supported by their sons Ian and Christopher, Tshukudu Private Game Reserve and Lodge has developed into a facility that is known worldwide, both as a Game Lodge, but also as a leader in the rehabilitation of orphaned wild animals, many who have been raised in the family homes on the reserve.
With the passing of Ala, Lolly and Ian, the new Management Team continues to foster the vision created and at the same time keeping pace with new and innovative developments in the industry.
With a Three Star Grading in place Tshukudu Game Lodge continues to offer our guests an experience that is not only unforgettable, but also unrivalled hospitality and mouth-watering homemade cuisine prepared and served by our dedicated staff, either on the open plan veranda or as is mostly the case in the evenings, around a log fire in the Boma.
Up to 28 Guests can experience comfort combined with “that African touch”within our individually appointed air conditioned chalets. With the open grounds of the Lodge surrounded by an electric fence that is almost naked to the eye keeping the large animals at bay, the Lodge merges into the natural surroundings of the bush.
Early morning walks, often accompanied by our resident Cheetah’s or Caracal, is a breath taking way to see the bush. Morning and afternoon game drives on open air Game Viewing Vehicles guided by our Team of skilled and experienced Game Guides, provide an adrenaline pumping up close experience with the African bush.
A place of exceptional character and history, Tshukudu Game Lodge has evolved to the haven that calls out - “Reach out and Touch, and let Africa Touch You”
We look forward to meeting with you soon.
