Tshukudu, being a Big 5 Game Reserve, provides the opportunity to spot a vast range of wild animals such as Bushbuck, Buffalo, Cheetah, Crocodile, Duiker, Elephant, Eland, Giraffe, Hippo, Impala, Jackal, Kudu, Lion, Leopard, Steenbuck, White Rhino, Waterbuck, Wildebeest and Zebra as well as many other species.  Not too mention the abundant flora and birdlife.

Giving Back To Nature

Since we opened in 1979, Tshukudu Game Reserve has restocked many other reserves in South Africa with wild animals and has been actively involved in the rehabilitation of orphaned animals back to the wild.    We are involved in the public education and environmental awareness of our natural heritage, and our main priority is the protection of Rhinos.  "Tshukudu" means Rhino in seSotho or seTswana (native African Language).
