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!...

Thank you Brian, Jenny and Andrew for your unequaled hospitality. So sorry we had to cut our weekend short. We had a memorable night with you guys and this is one of many. Thank you for the good food, accommodation and company!

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.

We stay in a safari tent, which has all mod-cons including toilet and concerte floor. We were fortunate to be the only guests, and had a beautiful meal with the hosts.... More

I stayed just one night at Kudu Ridge after visiting Addo Elephant Park, about 20 minutes away. Unfortunately I didn't have time to view the game at Kudu Ridge, but hope to do that one day in the future. The accommodation is in huge permanent tents. Mine would sleep four and incorporated a shower and ktichenette area. The hosts Brian... More

I got to stay in the very large and comfortable permanent tent accommodation which was a taste of what the safaris in the movies were like. These tents are far better than the small rather stuffy brick chalets. All accommodation is set among the undergrowth of the Addo Park and there is only a fence separating the site from the... More

The food is excellent and the host`s service good. Nice braai area and terrace for sundowner and star gazing. However the "chalets" are very old fashioned and basic and therefore quiet expensive... you get better value for that money in the area.

Nice lodge, good location, as it's an easy drive from Port Elizabeth and not far from Addo Elephant Park. Food was good and not expensive. We stayed in tents, but having a private bathroom and shower was rather nice. There was a bit of confusion about where the children would stay (we expected them to have their own tent, but... More

We spent 2 nights here and Brian and Jenny were lovely. They booked us on a safari with Schotia which we loved. We stayed on one of the tents in the grounds. We ate one evening meal with them which was simple and tasty and 2 breakfasts which were the same. They light the fire pit at night and have... More
