Tshukudu Bush Lodge

Elegant exclusivity on the plains of Africa

Tshukudu is one of those rare game lodges where perfection is a reality.

With only 6 luxury chalets and 4 suites, Tshukudu offers a romantic and intimate experience at the foot of the Pilanesberg mountains, with expansive views of the Savannah Plains below. Relax in your open plan lounge and watch the game wander lazily through the bush, towards the waterhole located below the lodge.

At night, after dinner, take a short walk back to your private chalet and watch the stars traverse the African sky.

Tshukudu is unique and memorable, in every aspect.





Tshukudu dining room

Breakfast is served on the deck, where you can enjoy either a continental buffet or order a hot breakfast. High Tea is served just before the afternoon game drive and consists of something sweet and savoury to see our guests through until dinner. Tshukudu is renowned for its exceptional African cuisine and can be enjoyed on the main deck, in the intimate dining room, or around the fire. Our chef will present his 5-course menu, of which you can expect a different dining experience every evening. Be mesmerised by our field guides who will share their bush experiences with you over dinner.
