Tshukudu Game Lodge

Safari where bushveld meets sophistication

Get up close with nature. Be it a sunset game drive, a dip in the pool, a trip to the spa, or a delicious meal accompanied
by an artisanal drink, Tshukudu Game Lodge is here to ensure you get the rest and relaxation you need… no, deserve!

Tshukudu, meaning “rhino” in Sotho, borders the Greater Kruger National Park. This little piece of heaven provides a
much-needed retreat from the hustle and bustle of city life. Isn’t it time you allowed yourself an immersive South
African wildlife experience in the Lowveld, open savannah plains and dense treescapes of a 3800-hectare private game

This Big 5 game lodge offers beautiful wildlife encounters, perfect for the avid nature-lover. Go on a game drive with
our experienced field guides who love to share their knowledge. The Tshukudu Game Lodge is open to day visitors.
(Self-drive game drives are not permitted, pre-bookings are necessary.) Treat yourself to a morning game drive. Finish
that adventure off with a sumptuous breakfast and a soothing spa service.

Mornings and afternoons are spent lazing around the crystal-clear swimming pools, relaxing in the stylish Tshukudu
Spa, or enjoying a meal and a gin tasting at our restaurant and bar. This is the ideal luxury safari experience for the
