Reach out and touch, and let Africa touch you...

Situated on five thousand hectares of pristine Africa Bush, Tshukudu Private Game Reserve is the ideal location to experience Africa’s Big Five.  With the breathtakingly beautiful Drakensberg mountain’s on the horizon, the abundance of wild game, an astonishing variety of bird species, family style hospitality, luxurious accommodation, Tshukudu is the place to “reach out and touch, and let Africa touch you. 


A very special place…

Established by Lolly and Ala Sussens in the early 1980’s, and supported by their sons Ian and Christopher, Tshukudu Private Game Reserve and Lodge has developed into a facility that is known worldwide, both as a Game Lodge, but also as a leader in the rehabilitation of orphaned wild animals, many who have been raised in the family homes on the reserve.  With the passing of Ala, Lolly and Ian, the new Management Team continues to foster the vision created and at the same time keeping pace with new and innovative developments in the industry.

About Us

Up to 28 Guests can experience comfort combined with “that African touch” within our individually appointed air conditioned chalets. With the open grounds of the Lodge surrounded by an electric fence that is almost naked to the eye keeping the large animals at bay, the Lodge merges into the natural surroundings of the bush.

Early morning walks, often accompanied by our resident Cheetah’s or Caracal, is a breath taking way to see the bush. Morning and afternoon game drives on open air Game Viewing Vehicles guided by our Team of skilled and experienced Game Guides, provide an adrenaline pumping up close experience with the African bush.

A place of exceptional character and history, Tshukudu Game Lodge has evolved to the haven that calls out – “Reach out and Touch, and let Africa Touch You”

  • Loved this lodge. The caring for the wildlife is just wonderful and the lodge itself is a home away from home!
