TSHUKUKU BUSH LODGE RATES: Tshukudu Bush Lodge Rates

Tshukudu Bush Lodge in Pilanesberg National Park, South Africa
Built high on a hilltop, the newly refurbished, luxurious Tskukudu Bush Lodge offers sweeping views of the malaria-free Pilanesberg Game Reserve. Offering only six cottages, attention to detail and personalized service is guaranteed. Each cottage has been uniquely designed and has its own private balcony offering panoramic views of the Park and potential sightings of over 80 species of wild animals, including the Big Five, as well as 360 bird species. To cope with the chilly Pilanesberg nights, a fireplace in each cottage creates a warm and snug environment. For the scorching summer days, a fully-stocked mini-bar will help quench the thirst.

Tshukudu is the Tswana name for Rhinoceros.

You can be assured that the six luxury cottages at Tshukudu receive personal attention with regard to every detail. Each unit has its own private balcony offering sweeping views of the park and waterhole.

Although almost everything about Tshukudu is unique, there is one feature that stands out above everything else: the exquisite bathrooms. Tastefully decorated in an African theme, each bathroom includes a sunken bath that overlooks the plains below, offering a breath-taking view of the wild.

The luxury accommodations include one double bed, two single beds, an open plan lounge with fireplace, a sunken bath overlooking the plains, a shower over bath, fully stocked mini bar, bird books, magazines, plug points, hair dryer, tea/coffee making facilities and a safety deposit box.

Hotel facilities
When you visit Tshukudu, leave all the trappings of city life behind - including your car. Guest vehicles can be parked in protected bays at Bakubung Bush Lodge. From there, you can entrust everything to the excellent staff.

Transfers between Pilanesberg Airport and Tshukudu can be arranged at a charge.
One daily transfer from Bakubung at 14h00. High tea served on arrival

Location & Nearby Attractions
A magnificent wildlife sanctuary lies not too far from the bustle of Johannesburg and Pretoria - located close enough to drive comfortably in under two hours, yet sufficiently distanced from the city lights.

Pilanesberg Game Reserve, which covers some 55,000 hectares, is the fourth largest in southern Africa. This malaria-free park is perched on the eroded vestiges of an alkaline volcanic crater - one of only three such craters in the world. On its undulating hills and everlasting open plains, you can get a glimpse of the 'Big Five', an abundance of animals and over 360 bird species. As well as the 'Big Five', you might also find the nocturnal brown hyena, wild dogs, cheetah, hippo, crocodile and even sable.

Ponder the silence by a blazing fire at night and enjoy food of international standard and African flavour accompanied by a wine from Tshukudu's splendid selection. By day, you can laze by the rock plunge pool.

Many guests are content to spend time at the lodge, drinking in the meditative silence and holding the wide, open plains in awe; but they never leave without tracking down the Big Five in the Pilanesberg Game Reserve, on game walks or drives.

After high tea, guests are taken on a game drive. Another game drive is available in the mornings, with the option of an escorted game walk. All game activities are conducted by experienced field guides. Special interest trails can be arranged for our guests. Tshukudu game drives are included in rates.

Tshukudu and Pilanesberg Game Reserve are situated adjacent to the world-renowned Sun City Resort. For a diversion, there's all the bustle and excitement of a day at Sun City, including:
• Tennis
• Squash
• Ten pin bowling
• Horse riding
• Crocodile farm
• Aviary
• Casino
• Live entertainment venues
• Theatre and movie
