The lodge is made up of a small number of rooms perched on top of a hill with amazing views over the park. Our driver who transported us from the airport dropped us at the main lodge on the outskirts of the reserve and we were then driven to our lodge in the park at around 2pm. We had a...

We have visited Pilensberg a number of times but this is the best place to stay if you do not have children or elderly people. The position is outstanding, sitting on a rocky outcrop overlooking the plain and a super water hole. The game drives with Shawn are the best we have done, she is knowledgeable, enthusiastic and certainly is...

Spent a few nights in the larger suite - what a great experience. Game drives were tailored to our interests, staff were friendly and passionate about their work, and the facilities were fantastic. We'll definitely be back.

This was my second stay there and it is still my favorite safari lodge so close to Johannesburg. They have extended a little with 2 or 3 new and comfortable rooms with their tiny pool on private terraces. Comparing to ten years ago, the only difference was that we had the feeling of a more crowded reserve. ( that has...

Dear Peter, Thank you for your review - it is always important to us to receive what our guests have experienced - I am pleased you had a good time with us - the park is getting busier and probably during the school holidays or public holidays - Pilanesburg is becoming much more popular now - it is so close...

We were lucky enough to celebrate our anniversary at this truly unique and amazing bush lodge. From the moment you arrive at Bakubung where you leave your vehicle and are welcomed by your dedicated game ranger and are transported to this small lodge on top of a rocky hill where only 10 chalets are situated overlooking a plane teaming with...

My wife and I had such a special experience here. It could not have been more perfect. The lodge has a large private area within the park and its perched above a nearby watering hole where we were treated to elephants, zebras and other animals drinking and cooling off. Although there are steps up to the lodge it is not...

A wonderful place where you can enjoy the pilanesberg. The hotel is nested on a small hill facing the bush where you can see wild animals during the all day from your terrace. The restaurant is marvelous, a great service, and cherry on the cake the private pool on your own terrace facing the bush... One advice: book at least...

This was my second visit to Tshukudu. I took my daughter as a birthday present to see what a true safari was all about. Neither of us were disappointed in any way. The food was five star.

Our stay at Tshukudu was incredible! The lodges are hidden discreetly among the trees on a hill. Very private with stunning views of the watering hole and savannah below.
