The Pilanesberg National Park is the fourth largest in South 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. Game viewing in the Pilanesberg is superb and there are excellent Game Lodges within the reserve. The lodges range from 4 to 5 star and cater for either small, intimate groups (couples) with the emphasis on personal service, luxury and a unique game viewing experience. (Tshukudu Game Lodge). Or for larger groups there is KwaMaritane or Bakubung Bush Lodge.

Tshukudu Lodge, “Place of the Rhino” in the Pilanesberg, offers 6 newly refurbished luxury cottages and 2 newly refurbished standard cabins nestled on an isolated rocky outcrop in the heart of a 55 000 hectare, malaria free, wildlife paradise. One of the highlights in the rooms at Tshukudu for any couple looking for a romantic beak is the in-room large volume bath with magnifcent views over the waterhole – watch the wildlife walk by as you sip champagne in the bath … (see photo below), very romantic and a really unique experience.
A game drive or walk is a must. The rangers at Tshukudu share their intimate knowledge of the animals with you and make every effort to ensure that you get to see as much of the wildlife as possible, including the Big 5. When you just want to take it easy, view the game as it visits the waterhole from the privacy of your own balcony or from the comfort of the Nest area. Or just relax in the sun around the sheltered rock pool ….
