Tshukudu, a Big 5 Game Reserve, boasts 3600 ha of unspoiled bush with a lovely view to the Drakensberg Mountains. Close encounters with rehabilitated (orphaned) as well as wild animals will leave a lasting impression on all guests. At a very affordable rate, visitors can observe the Big 5 as well as a wide variety of animals and bird species on game drives and walks with a knowledgeable ranger sharing the wonders of the bush.

Tshukudu Game Reserve was started in 1980 on what used to be a cattle ranch. Although many antelope species as well as giraffe were already on the property a variety of animals had to be reintroduced. One of the first were rhinoceros hence the name “Tshukudu” which means “rhino” in Sotho.

Today, Tshukudu is teeming with game, the birdlife is prolific and the bush has reverted to its pristine state. The many Acacia and Marula trees give a real feel of the African Bushveld…
