Fairfax, Virginia
Reviewed 5 days ago NEW

I had a nice room, shared with a friend. The rangers and staff are super-friendly; they make you feel part of the family. Every detail is handled, from airport pick-up, meals, drinks, and activities. I especially enjoyed the morning walks, walking with Ntombi (the cheetah) who was super-friendly; one day she lead the walk and another day she followed us....

Went for business and pleasure wanted to see some game and exceeded our expectations Will go again. The owners made us feel special and we felt like family time was very short but my kids loved it as so did we. Walking with the Cheetahs and be so close to the game was extremely special

Warm welcome, familiar and continuously pleasant atmosphere due to friendliness of staff both internal as well as towards visitors makes a visitor like spending time among close friends. The activities: bush drives and bush walks, led by competent rangers, are unbeatable. Close contacts with animals, under a careful guidance of the staff, form an additional not often met attraction.

I stayed three nights at Tshukudu Lodge and opted for the room, board and game sighting package. The daily schedule consisted of an early morning bush drive/walk (with coffee and biscuits freely available prior to departure), a continental breakfast, an optional (extra fee) 2-hr game drive, hot buffet lunch, 3-hr game drive at dusk, and buffet dinner. The rooms were...

I have been visiting Tshukudu many times over the last 15 years. Recently the atmosphere as well as the overall management changed significantly, not for the better! The first major change is the cancellation of the rehabilitation programme that used to be the main attraction. The second major change is the transformation of what used to be a family business...

Thank you for the review with regards to your recent stay with us. Tshukudu is still very much involved in wildlife conservation as a whole but have made certain choices regarding it's rehabilitation facilities due to public opinion and negative connotations attached to rehabilitation centers as a whole. This has however had very little affect on the service we provide...

The rangers really do their best to bring you close to the animals. The game drives are worth their money (the cars go merely everywhere:-) Morning walks in the bush let you come closer to nature. Everyone is friendly, the food is excellent. Thank you!
