Bringing People Closer to Nature

Tshukudu Game Lodge started with Ala & Lolly Sussens who are still respected and much loved posthumously. The Lodge was one of the first to open in the area by the Sussens family, with a dream to bring people closer to nature. Starting from humble beginnings, their dreams and passion fueled their success and today Tshukudu Game Lodge is one of the most visited and treasured gems in the Lowveld of South Africa.

Their children continued their legacy and in 2019 celebrated 40 wonderful years of guest prosperity, newsworthy animal stories and a lifetime of memories. Join us in taking a look back
