10/10 Exceptional

We originally booked this property for eight days. We loved it so much that we canceled our stay at Sun City Palace and stayed at Tshukudu. We are so glad we did. Our guide, JR, was like having your own personal Wikipedia, sitting beside you on game drives. He was excellent in every way. The property is quiet and beautiful. We booked the chalet that had plunge pool. The water was just the right temperature every day. Yes, it’s heated. We had dinner in her room one night, and the staff had built a fire in the fireplace before our arrival from the game drive. The food is five star. I really have nothing negative to say about our stay here. We liked it so much, we are planning a trip to return in June 2024.

This is a stunning luxurylodge inside the Pilanesberg National Park. The rooms are al separate lodges each with their own private balcony looking out across the watering whole and savannah which is within a priavte area of the park only accessed by the lodge. It is a quiet and peaceful area with great views to sit and watch the animals of the park. Alternatively you can join two amazing game drives a day, icluded in the price, if you wish. This was a beautiful experience for my daugher and I who spent 6 days enjoying the facilities and hospitality of the wonderful staff.Our only wish was we could have stayed longer!
