About Tshukudu Lodge

Overlooking its own waterhole, set in rolling plains that abound with flora and fauna, Tshukudu Lodge allows the visitor a special glimpse of Africa as she was: untouched, unspoilt, unforgettable ... Tshukudu Lodge, "Place of the Rhino" in the Pilanesberg Game Reserve, offers 6 luxury cottages and 2 cabins nestled on an isolated rocky outcrop in the heart of a 55 000 hectare, malaria free, wildlife paradise.

Amazingly enough, this incredible wilderness experience is but a 2 hour drive from the concrete jungles of Johannesburg and Pretoria. Direct flights are available from Cape Town, Hoedspruit and Johannesburg to the Pilanesberg Airport.


Each of Tshukudu's luxury cottages are equipped with everything you could possible need from walking sticks to bubble bath. You will find a safety deposit box, mini bar, hairdryers, books and magazines as well as a tea and coffee facility. Slate floors and the thatched roof keep you cool in the hottest weather, and wood burning fires and hot water bottles keep you warm during cold winter nights.

To keep the pressures of the outside world remote, you won't find radios, television or telephones. Cell phone signal is very limited. Here the only sound is the wind whispering through the grass, perhaps the distinctive call of a lion, or a jackal's plaintive wail.

The sunken bath in the luxury cottages has its own private view of the waterhole. What a way to relax and forget the pressures of the city life and to soak in the sights and the sounds of the African bush.


Tshukudu's cuisines are not only out of Africa, it's out of this world. Each dish is lovingly prepared to 5 star standards. A full English brunch prepared to perfection at the end of an early morning game drive; high tea with a savory and sweet selection; sundowners under African skies; a splendid selection of wine provides the ultimate accompaniment to your five course dinner.

Overlooking its own waterhole, set in rolling plains that abound with flora and fauna, Tshukudu Lodge allows the visitor a special glimpse of Africa as she was: untouched, unspoilt, unforgettable.


A game drive or walk is a must. Our rangers share their intimate knowledge of animals and plants, answering questions and pointing out the wonders of the wild kingdom. Still, there are times when you might just like to take it easy, view the game as it visits the waterhole from the privacy of your own balcony or from the comfort of the Nest area. Or just relax in the sun around the sheltered rock pool.

i have stayed at this lodge in the years 1993 and 1994, and have the fondest of memories of Sunshine the baby lion cub and of our Ranger Stanley. My regards to them him if he is still around. i Loved Tshkudu and now see that the place has had a full revamp and is looking glam !! i used to come there with the Carhay Pacific crew group !! All the best, Mrs. Meherangez Bharucha Sarid
