Located in the northern part of South Africa where the country meets with Botswana and Zimbabwe. Mapungubwe National Park is rich in history as it is in wildlife and flora, and is filled with numerous patches of land that poses traces of ancient civilizations and artefacts. Mapungubwe serves both as National Park declared in 2004, and a World Heritage Site declared by UNESCO in 2003.

Tshugulu Lodge is a luxury lodge located in the Western section of the park, approximately 23 km from the Main Gate, along the R572 Pondrift Road. Experience bushveld lavishness where the large and dangerous animals like to roam. Unguided walking is not permitted, as guests will be sharing their stay with the surrounding wildlife inhabitants of Mapungubwe. A striking setting of giant regal Baobab and Mashatu trees, riverine forests and allied plains makes the experience memorable.

This luxury lodge sleeps 12 people in 6 bedrooms, making it the unique retreat for intimate groups of people who enjoy gathering around the campfire to share stories of the day’s wildlife sighting.

Added facilities include an equipped kitchen, a bath, swimming pool and an exclusive eco-trail where one gets to learn the secrets of the surrounding environment. The lodge is accessible with a normal sedan vehicle.

Mapungubwe’s restaurant offers a comprehensive menu, and pre-packed dinners are available on request. Other facilities at Mapungubwe include picnic sites and a day visitor centre, a Limpopo and Shashe rivers Confluence Lookout Point, a treetop boardwalk, Maloutswa Bird Hide, and an auditorium ideal for educational groups or small conferences and can seat up to 50 guests.

The Mapungubwe Interpretive Centre, an amazing building that won the World Building of the Year in 2009s World Architectural Awards, was constructed to house a museum with many of the artefacts uncovered from archaeological sites in the park. Information on the park's fascinating history and biology is also available at the interpretive centre with knowledgeable guides on hand to take visitors through the centre.
