Tshukudu Bush Lodge in the Pilanesberg

Tshukudu Bush Lodge is situated high on a rocky outcrop. Tshukudu is renowned for it’s intimate setting, tranquil and superb personalized service.
With the cottages situated that high up and the only way up being a climb of 13 or so steps, it makes the area largely inaccessible for the physically challenged.
Just a 2.5 hour drive from Johannesburg, this lodge is close enough to make it a quick and easily accessible one or two night getaway.

Tshukudu Bush Lodge is located in the malaria free Pilanesberg National Park, in North West Province. It is built high on the side of a hilltop and offers sweeping views of the plains and the waterhole below.
You check in at Bakubung Bush Lodge and are then transferred to Tshukudu, a 15 minute (game)drive away.
