Our ranger (Chris) was very good at finding the animals. Service: When we first arrive, we were met with a tall white man at the reception for checking in (didn't get his name),...

A very good place to stay. We enjoyed the cheetahs very close - we will never forget this. And we will never forget our ranger Shaddy, who learned us a lot and told us interesting stories of peóple and nature. We hope to come back as soon as possible.

You have some rooms that have been renovated and others that are not yet improved. Whilst this is an understandable situation, you should not charge the same price for both! Otherwise we were very happy with our stay at Tshukudu, particularly with the professionalism of the rangers. The food was good too and the overall atmosphere quite delightful!
