Tshukudu Bush Lodge - 5 star *****

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 luxury suites, Tshukudu offers a romantic and intimate experience at the foot of the Pilanesberg mountains, with expansive views of the 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.

Situated in a malaria free area, offering game drives, bush walks, free WiFi and a swimming pool, Tshukudu is unique and memorable in every aspect.


The six free standing luxury chalets of Tshukudu lodge are individually decorated with a love of detail. Leather sofas and crystal chandeliers provide an elaborate feel while a double bed and a sunken bath tub guarantee comfort and relaxation.
