We did a one night stop-gap stay on the way from Addo Elephant Park to Port Elizabeth. Did not manage to see much of the game as we arrived late and left next morning. However it was enough to enjoy a decent home-made dinner, have a laugh or two with the family (super friendly) and other guests. Accommodation-wise KRGR is... More

The stay at Kudu Ridge Game Ranch was a wonderful experiece. Sleeping in the tents was just great. You experience the feeling of sleeping in the bush but in a save and not primitive tent. The premises are clean and in good conditiong

We spent some time here after visiting Addo park and we were delighted with the choice. The staff and family owners done everything to make us feel welcome and at home. Food, accommodation and hospitality were excellent.

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

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!...
