“Bush experience to remember”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 August 2012

My entire family-in-law from The Netherlands and I (16 persons in total, ranging from 80 years to 9 months) recently enjoyed a week's stay at Tshukudu Bush Camp. Being South African, I had certain expectations in terms of the facilities as well as the game-viewing opportunities. I was not disappointed and nor were the family. We had great fun self-catering, enjoying most meals around the campfire in the boma. We went on walks, drives and even had a bush breakfast. A definite highlight were the close-up encounters we had with various 'stars' from the breeding and rehabilitation programmes. Rangers Jake (our principle ranger) and David are passionate about the bush and were very informative. The staff at the camp are also very helpful. Sylvia, the owner, was very helpful when making the booking and catering to our specifc needs. It's a small park, some 5000ha, but it's packed with lots to do and see! There are also other interesting places to visit in the area (see Tshukudu's website for more details).

Room Tip: There are several cottages and dorm-type rooms to choose from that cater for everyone's needs. W...

I had a friend visiting form the UK, and we ended up here. What an amazing experience. Initially we were a bit taken aback, as there was no kettle in the room, but after that first coffee and rusks around the fire in the morning, we were hooked! Jakes, the ranger/ camp manager, was an absolute inspiration. His love for the animals and the bush was infectious. Thank you, Jakes 1The staff were all friendly and helpful too.We should have stayed 4 nights, but ended up staying for a 5th night. It was so awesome, sitting around the fire at night, stargazing or fire gazing, listening to the sounds of the bush or the silence and jut getting the soul restored!

Room Tip: We had the honeymoon suite!!
