We enjoyed our 3 night stay at Tshwene lodge very much. From pickup at the Welgevonden gate to drop-off 4 days later the service was extremely friendly without being intrusive. With only 5 units this lodge is ideal for a couples break. Food was delicious. We loved the tapas style lunches and enjoyed the oxtail dinner around the campfire in the boma. Most meals however was served on the deck next to the pool which is also very nice. Wifi is only available at the main complex and there is no cellphone reception- a bonus. We probably had one of the best massages ever- spoil yourself. Our room no 3 was spacious with a deck which we enjoyed. The bathroom is beautiful with inside and outside shower. A minibar in the room would have been a plus as would be a small coffee machine. There is a mini fridge they can just as well stock it with a few drinks. Jacobs sachet coffee just doesn’t fit a lodge like this. I got a sense that woodwork like doors and decks in and around the rooms needs a little tlc.

If you love the bush and want a few days off at an amazing reserve, look no further than Tshwene. The staff are brilliant and one stand out part was the food. It is without doubt 5 star. Thanks to all the staff. We also experienced a Lion Kill and we say an Aardvark, which was a first for us.

A really amazing weekend. Staff, food, game viewing was all top class. The service we received made the weekend amazing, our only task was to relax and enjoy ourselves. Chef Isaac made sure we were fed the most amazing food, and our guide Thabang ensured we saw everything we wanted. Highlight was a female Cheetah with 4 cubs! We will be back, but for more nights!
