6/10 Good

Tshukudu Game Lodge - Review
The game lodge provides a great lion, cheetah and elephant experience as these are easier for the rangers to find due to telemetry. Leopard and Rhino can be fairly elusive and you can very likely leave not experiencing the big 5 as was the case in my instance. The accommodation is very clean however not as modern as expected. Staff are fairly friendly and accommodating. The lodge is fairly well situated to get to the Kruger National Park as well as, God's Window and Potholes.

The room was very clean and the staff were very friendly and helpful. We had a great time staying at the property and the game drive and bush walk was just amazing! Was a unique experience getting to walk with the cheetahs and to touch them as well! Would definitely come back in the future!

Amazing Stay
Our stay at Tshukudu Game Lodge was excellent. The room was clean and well appointed, in the style of an African hut. The staff were warm and friendly and the food good and plentiful. The safari drives were superb - our guide, Michael, was fun, friendly and knowledgable, and we saw some incredible sights, including a family of lions (including cubs) feasting on a water buffalo, rhino, giraffes, hippos and zebras. And of course the resident cheetahs, which are tame enough to stroke - a fantastic experience.

8/10 Very good

Still very good
This was not our first visit to Tshukudu, our first being in 2005. Everything was as we expected regarding the accommodation, always clean and comfortable with excellent staff who really make you feel at home. Although the wildlife experience was very good, with the Cheetah brothers visiting the camp a couple of times, we felt slightly disappointed that there was no longer an early morning walk with a young lion or a cheetah. If we were visiting for the first time I'm sure the camp would have lived up to or even exceeded our expectations, but having visited in the past with Savana and when they had a Lion breeding program it was not quite the same! If though you are looking for a first time Safari experience then Tshukudu would be an excellent choice

Superbe Logde
Superbe logde, bien pensé, avec possibilité de 2 safaris par jour, plus un possible en supplément. Le personnel est très accueillant et prévenant. A recommander pour 2 nuits ou 3 nuits, plus on risque de tourner en rond.
