Description:

Tshukudu Bush Lodge is positioned high on a rocky hill with panoramic views of the magnificent reserve and offers the perfect romantic retreat for an exclusive safari experience. Pilanesberg Game Reserve lies in the basin of an ancient volcanic crater. The extinct volcano is the perfect example of an alkaline ring complex and one of the largest of its type. The ecology of Pilanesberg is also fascinating; it lies in a transitional zone between the dry, arid Kalahari Desert and lush Lowveld and there is a lot of overlap in the richness of the reserve’s fauna and flora. Before the drive back to Johannesburg, you have the option of a game drive in a closed tour vehicle in Pilanesberg Game Reserve.

ACCOMMODATION

TSHUKUDU BUSH LODGE ǀ Luxury accommodation in Pilanesberg Game Reserve

10 luxury thatched chalets, sleeping up to 20 adult guests

Tshukudu Bush Lodge is an intimate safari lodge located in the malaria-free Pilanesberg Game Reserve and is the perfect romantic retreat. It lies against the side of a hill, overlooking a busy waterhole and the open savanna grasslands. The Big 5 reserve lies at the base of an ancient volcanic crater and the lodge is built high up on a rocky slope that forms part of a rare alkaline ring complex.

Each thatched chalet blends in seamlessly with the beautiful hilltop surrounds and is carefully positioned for complete privacy. The décor is elegant with African-themed touches and offers luxury features such as leather sofas, crystal chandeliers, deep sunken baths with panoramic views, outdoor shower and your own private viewing deck.

Daily game drives are in an open safari vehicle with a professional rangers. The hours in between are pure relaxation; lying around a sparkling plunge pool on a large outdoor deck, game and bird watching from your private deck, pamper spa sessions and fine dining and excellent wine pairings in the intimate restaurant or around the firepit at the outdoor boma.

Tshukudu Bush Lodge is not recommended for people who are physically challenged. Guests need to relatively fit to climb 132 steps from the parking to the main lodge. There’s an age restriction on children staying because of how high the patios are off the hilltop side.

Children of 12 years and older are welcome at Tshukudu Bush Lodge.
