This is the “Place of the Rhino”. From five stars to the Big Five has never been more apt than at the luxurious Tshukudu Bush Lodge. Built high on a hilltop, the lodge offers sweeping views of the malaria-free Pilanesberg National Park. Pilanesberg National Park, which covers some 55 000 hectare, is the fourth largest in Southern Africa. This malaria-free park is perched on the eroded vestiges of an alkaline volcanic crater – one of only three such craters in the world. On its undulating hills and everlasting open plains, you can get a glimpse of the “Big Five”, an abundance of animals and over 360 bird species.

When you visit Tshukudu, we ask that you leave all the trappings of city life behind - including your car. Guest vehicles can be parked in protected bays at Bakubung Bush Lodge - from where you'll be transferred to Tshukudu at 15h00.

    A mere two hours drive north of Johannesburg and Pretoria and you'll find yourself in the tranquil heart of the bush. Pilanesberg National Park is home to the gargantuan shapes of Africa's giants - elephants, rhino and buffalo. If you're fortunate, you may catch a glimpse of the stealthy leopard or lion, stately king of the bush. Wild country indeed, but without the risk of malaria.
