Tshukudu Bush Lodge is known for the amazing wildlife that lives in the park. There is always spectacular sightings and events unraveling at the Lodge.

Here is a story from Shawn Catterall.

“One evening we were coming home after an exceptionally quiet drive – and in the spotlight we picked up a familiar figure – lioness in front of the lodge – we saw more and more of them – 10 in fact – they were hunting – lights off and ears straining to hear any noise or movement – after a while – it all happened – we heard wildebeest stampeding in front of us – and then the all too familiar distress call – they had one – we moved our vehicle carefully forward and there in the lights 10 lions around a male wildebeest – it took them less than an hour to devour him – just the stomach content left – the most amazing thing about the entire late evening were the sounds the lions made – grumbling, snarling, fighting, lashing out with paws and claws – it sounded like a thunder storm in the middle of them – we sat in the dark until it was all over – guests silent – totally silent”
