The sun rises over a new morning at Tshukudu. Already the guests eagerly await the early morning walk. This special experience draws both young and old from all over the world.
The first animals to be re-introduced to the property were white rhino, hence the name Tshukudu, meaning rhino in Sotho.
The third most well known and loved project undertaken at Tshukudu is still their rehabilitation programme. Sick, injured or orphaned animals of all shapes and sizes have been nursed back to health and re-introduced to the wild.
The lodge, the animals and the people have become part of the lives of our returning guests. With each visit they experience more and enjoy, more than ever before, the ambience of this Family run game lodge.
The face of Tshukudu is a wide grin at the gate, warthog trotting across the dirt road and giraffe gracefully flowing back into the thick bush.
The heart of Tshukudu is the warmth of the Sussens family, the care for everyone's needs and the love of the animals that make Tshukudu such a haven.
Tshukudu started in 1980 and it still has the same charm it had all those years ago. Life goes on but time still stands at Tshukudu.
