Tshukudu Bush Lodge


The luxurious Tshukudu Bush Lodge is on an elevated hill with stunning views overlooking the natural surroundings. This intimate lodge offers six luxury cottages, where attention to detail and personalized service is guaranteed.

Tsukudu means “place of the rhino”. It is not uncommon to spot the Big Five from this luxury lodge. The small intimate size of the lodge is perfect for guests who seek tranquillity in nature. Ideal for small groups.

High tea and meals are provided on the deck overlooking the plain, and there’s a waterhole at the foot of the hill. After a delicious high tea, guests go on a guided game drive that lasts up to 4 hours.

The cuisine has a strong African influence and is prepared to five star standards. Plus, a splendid selection of wines provides the perfect accompaniment to your carefully ready meal. At night, sit under the African sky beside the blazing fire and listen to the distant roar of lions.

To reach Tshukudu cottages, guests must climb 132 steps. Tshukudu Bush Lodge is renowned for its intimate setting, tranquillity and superb service 7,4 km from Sun City.

Not wheelchair friendly, unfortunately.
