Welcome to Tshukudu Bush Lodge, an intimate sanctuary nestled away on its own private concession in the heart of the malaria-free Pilanesberg National Park. Just a two-hour drive from Johannesburg, this beautiful retreat is well known for its picturesque topography and extensive plains teeming with wildlife.
The lodge and its ten chalets are wrapped high upon the contours of a rocky outcrop giving it panoramic views of the grasslands and waterhole below – ideal for game viewing throughout the day.
Other than what to wear, you do not need to pack a thing because guests stay on a fully inclusive basis, which consists of breakfast, high tea and dinner prepared to perfection, select local beverages and two daily game drives with our experienced ranger on a private game vehicle.
The lodge’s location makes it an unbeatable destination for a quick romantic getaway, an intimate honeymoon, or an exclusive venue for a small wedding or corporate breakaway. It is truly spectacular; a place where guests can escape the world and just relax, unwind and breathe in the glories of nature.
TSHUKUDU DINING ROOM
Tshukudu’s Dining Room is set just off the main deck area and is a cozy nook for guests to dine inside on cool or rainy days. Adorned with a hand crafted, solid-wood table with seating for up to 20 guests, this is the perfect place to enjoy meals as a group.
Renowned for our exceptional African cuisine, meticulously prepared by our chef, guests can expect an incredible degustation experience starting at breakfast and ending the day with a full five-course dinner.
TSHUKUDU BUSH DINNER
One of the most charming dining experiences Tshukudu has on offer is a short trip into the African bush where our guests can immerse themselves in nature while dining under the stars.
With the fireplace as your centerpiece, expect to be served a starter of warm soup, followed by a traditional South African braai (barbeque) buffet, plated dessert, and an assorted cheeseboard to conclude.
As the meal comes to an end and the moon makes its way across the near-midnight sky, allow our rangers to entertain you for a little longer as they share an assortment of authentic African stories, fables and legends. This is a truly unforgettable experience and not to be missed. Group bookings essential.
With its breathtaking views over the plains below, the deck is the ideal venue for all meals at the lodge. Tables are setup and spread across the space, ensuring privacy for guests to enjoy their cuisine in their groups or pairs.
The ideal space to host a small meeting or conference, followed with a meal and sundowners on the deck. The intimacy of Tshukudu will ensure both the privacy and personal attention to detail.
From proposals to anniversaries and birthdays, each occasion is tailor-made and guaranteed to be a unique experience every time. We will work with you to make it a memorable one.
