I hate to say it but aside from the up close encounter with the cheetahs Tshukudu was a little less than stellar. We stayed in a larger family accommodation with no locks on the doors, a leaky sink in the bathroom, holes in our towels and a local staff that was luke warm in their overall interactions with our family...

We saw 4 of the big 5. A cheetah was staying most of the time with us in the camp. She was so relax with us. The elephants...

This is the place to go on a Big 5 game drive. During a 4 hour game drive we got to see 4 out of the big 5, hear a lion roar and pet a cheetah! The guide, Patrick, also was the most professional and knowledgable, yet chill and laidback out of any of our guides during a 5-day safari...

Amazing as always! We are never disappointed with the knowledge of the game drivers or the professionalism of the staff! A most beautiful experience in a stunning piece of Africa! The wildlife was brilliant and no one in our group was disappointed with the game drive and walks. It was a huge hit with the kids!

The accomodation and food was excellent, we saw the big five in one day. Our personal guide Shadrack was exceptionally knowledgeable and pleasant. The whole experience was thoroughly enjoyable and I would recommend it highly.

Very friendly staff, amazing views and wildlife, superb drives and walks with very dedicated ranger (Richard). Clean basic rooms and best of all: a cheetah who loves to be hugged! We, two adults and two girls aged 12 and 15, stayed three nights and wished we had time to stay three weeks.

Great stay, wonderful animal sightings and some added extras like the caracal breeding program and the cheetahs! Their focus on conservation and rehabilitation of animals is commendable. We had a great walk and had the privilege to joint the two male cheetahs on a hunt.

I recently visited Tshukudu Bush Camp with a friend and we took our kids along. My 4 year old daughter is not used to wildlife and the bush and I was a little worried that she would be difficult, but she loved it from the moment we arrived. When we got there, we were greeted by a tame cheetah named...
