A fantastic few days of relaxation - a great welcome, great food and wine, interesting conversations and great guests as well. We'll definitely be back before long. The view from above the "braai" area is superb. And it's so near toad Elephant Park.

Best misunderstanding ever: I asked to book a game drive in Addo Elephant Park and I used the word "safari" (it's called so in German). Brian booked a very special trip: Addo Elephant Back Safari- riding on an Elephant. I was surprised about this event but I tried to do and it is one of the best experiences in my... More

Hi Marco, I am pleased I don't have to apologize for this misunderstanding. We still talk about it and wonder what you were thinking with that long rough drive and having to ride an Elephant when you were expecting to see Elephants in Addo Elephant Park and not questioning what was going on. You can say you earned the right... More

We stayed only one night but this was a really nice lodge, "hotel room" like tents with all you need. Good food. We would have liked to stay longer at this friendly place. At night they lit a very nice fire to sit around and have drinks and good talk with the friends and other visitors Nice spot to watch... More

This place is in a game park. You have to drive a rough unpaved road for about 300 meters to be at this lodge. The rooms are very basic. But the feeling to spend the night in a game park, in very nice hospitality and a braai (open fire place), good food and good company makes the stay an experience... More

Very friendly staff, in the middle of nature and spaceous basic tents. The place is family owned and everything is done for the guests. If I come back to Addo one day I would definetly go back to Kudu Ridge:).

A nice surprise to be booked into a tent - a big spacious tent, very comfortable living. Quiet location & very private - lovely family and atmosphere in the entertainment Braai area. A definite that we would return there. Drive to addo game park was great .

Nothing beats family and authentic people. Brian and Jenny are amazing people! They immediately make you feel at home when staying at Kudu Ridge. My wife and I, who are from the United States, have talked about taking my family back to Kudu ridge. They are really close to Addo Elephant Park which we did several drives. So many Elephants!...

Great location for access to Addo. Excellent cottage and tent accommodation and very hospitable hosts who are willing to accommodate special requests. Game farm is great for walks with plenty Kudu and Impala to see on foot.
