You have some rooms that have been renovated and others that are not yet improved. Whilst this is an understandable situation, you should not charge the same price for both! Otherwise we were very happy with our stay at Tshukudu, particularly with the professionalism of the rangers. The food was good too and the overall atmosphere quite delightful!

On an evening game drive with Patrick we were lucky enough to spot a pair of lesser spotted genet up,a tree. Very rare to see and charming. Patrick has a wealth of knowledge and ready to share with unreserved patience and passion

We really enjoyed our overnight stay, friendly staff, lovely food, great rangers and beautiful animals. The morning walk and the evening drive were fascinating, the rangers are very knowledgable and have great stories to tell, as well as great skill finding the animals.

My request would be to update the website as at present it is misleading with regards the animal and the animal interaction. Although still a pleasant experience but less than I expected. Staff are friendly and food was very good.
