Tshukudu was quite an experience. The lodge was well organized and had very friendly staff. We felt welcome and comfortable. Meeting a few tourists also visiting Tshukudu was a bonus. The game drives were lots of fun like chasing the sunset. Being able to interact with a cheetah was by far our favourite! We will definitely visit Tshukudu again.

An experience to never forget - you can walk in the bush with the cheetahs before the great game drives and finish your evening in a circle of wonderful people enjoying a great meal. And a whole new level of hospitality!

Stayed for two nights, travelling with friends who had been before. Well layed out 'camp', with all facilities being close to hand. Rooms are basic, but sufficient. Water pressure was incredibly powerful and lovely hot water. Mosquito nets around the bed at night time. Staff do a turn down service while you are out in your afternoon game drive. Beds...

I took friends from Germany and they loved it so much! The friendly people and welcoming made this extra special, rooms at Marula camp are wonderful and we will visit again. The fire at the boma was ready at night, and this made every thing easy and cosy!
