Tshukudu Bush Lodge


Tshukudu Bush lodge, or “place of the Rhino”, is on a hilltop. The luxurious Tshukudu Bush Lodge offers sweeping views of the malaria-free Pilanesberg National Park. This intimate lodge offers six luxury cottages, where attention to detail and personalized service is guaranteed. Game traverses the plains below and Big Five sightings are the norm, rather than the exception.

To reach Tshukudu cottages, guests climb 132 steps which make the area inaccessible to the physically challenged. Tshukudu Bush Lodge  is renowned for its intimate setting, tranquility and superb service.

Not wheelchair friendly, unfortunately.
