Welcome to

Tshukudu Game Lodge

Part of the world renowned Kruger National Park
Tshukudu Game Lodge is situated in the Tshukudu Game Reserve which borders the world-renowned Greater Kruger National Park, which overlooks the Drakensburg mountains. The property is 3,800ha and boasts the Big 5, as well as Cheetah, Hippo, Giraffe, Zebra, a large variety of
antelope species, reptiles and over 250 bird species.

All animals are wild and free roaming with no human interaction.

The rooms are tastefully decorated, overlooking the Bushveld and all have free wifi, air conditioning, mosquito nets and complementary coffee/tea stations.
The morning and afternoon game drives are accompanied by experienced game rangers who love to share their knowledge about the local wildlife and environment.  Mid mornings and afternoons are spent lazily around the crystal clear pools or in the stylish Tshukudu Game Lodge Spa,
which provides an ideal opportunity to compliment the feeling of wellness one gets
from being in nature with a relaxing treatment. 

The Tshukudu Game Lodge Restaurant and Bar offers special gin tastings and boasts a very
popular pizza menu.

Tshukudu Game Lodge is ideally situated, 12km from Hoedspruit in Limpopo, a mere 40km from Orpen Gate and 75km from Phalaborwa Gate, Kruger National Park, which makes it ideal for a day round trip to and from the Kruger National Park.  Various other day trips can also be arranged from the property including the Panoramic Route, Blyde River Canyon, Hot Air Ballooning, Boat rides, horse riding and quad biking. Eastgate Airport is 17km from the Reserve.

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).
