          Hi. Are the game drives included in the price? One of the previous comments suggests you have to have a certain number of people in the party. If there weren't many people there, and we are just 2 of us, would the drives still take place without any extra cost? Thanks.

          Dear Cindy, I am very sorry you feel this way about Tshukudu Game Lodge. I believe every effort was made to make your stay comfortable, however believe you may have a different agenda as this is not your first attempt to discredit Tshukudu Game Lodge nor do I believe it will be your last, please be truthful and stop making things up. This is certainly not the way we treat our guests. We get a 78% return rate on guests for a reason, as they are always treated well and we are service orientated. Firstly may I say that you were never invoiced for the transfer from Nelspruit by us, as you paid this directly to the transfer company. You are trying to blame us for things that are out of our control. We always advise our guests to fly to Hoedspruit Airport or hire a car and drive down or alternatively to get the shuttle. It would furthermore be unreasonable to expect to travel that distance of 230 km with no costs being involved. I also don't understand as we have new linen in all the rooms and as all other guests will state they are always clean and fresh. Rooms are clean, neat and comfortable. You are correct in saying that the mosquito nets in that room had a few holes and after closer inspection we have replaced them. Hoedspruit is most definitely not the most infected area or even close with malaria. We are considered a low risk malaria area.... We have a night watchmen/security that protects the lodge and all our guests. However we do not want to remove all these wonderful wild animals, they are welcome to pass through the lodge at any time as it adds to the Bush Experience that most guests would love.... The pathways to the rooms are well lit and visible. Again I don’t understand these comments as they are unfounded. Our food is of a high standard! We prepare good African style meals for locals and foreigners alike as well as other international dishes to satisfy various tastes. Our full focus and care is most definitely on both the environment/animals and our guests. Again I argue you to please STOP making false statements and unfounded remarks! Regards, Patrick Sussens Operations Manager
