We stayed here for two nights in early Jan 2015. We drove there ourselves on dirt roads in high temperatures for about two hours each way from the main road (N10). This is not in Addo National Park as I had thought, it is part of Greater Addo, a semi arid region. On first impressions the place looks lovely. However,... More

Let me first of all talk about the game. After all that is why everyone visits lodges like this. Before I settled on Kuzuko I found it difficult to get decent reviews on the game but easy to get reviews on the accommodation on several reserves. I have to be honest and say the game was disappointing. Having said that... More

I stayed at the Kuzuko Lodge for five days and wanted to stay longer. It is located in Addo Elephant National Park and I loved it. The Kuzuko Lodge is part of the Legacy Hotels and Resorts operation and very much is a 'high-standard' location. What impressed me the most are the incredible views from all parts of the lodging....

Arrived at reception mid afternoon, checked in by welcoming staff and was whisked away in in game vehicles to the main hotel - quick wash-up before high tea and was then whisked away for an late afternoon game drive. Saw some magnificent animal on every drive and even though it rained each time we were out, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves,... More

Thank you to all staff and management for a great weekend. Even though we arrived late we had a warm welcome by the F&B manager, Andrew followed by a lovely meal. I requested some extras for the room before arrival which was happily arranged. Everything was top class - our only disappointment was not seeing any cheetah or lions... :-(... More

We spent two nights at Kuzuko and had a fantastic time. It would have been better to stay an extra night just to see everything. The lodge, food, service and guides were all top notch. Everyone was friendly and service oriented. From the moment we arrived, everyone made us feel welcome. The hotel is very remote and the views are... More

These individual huts are built high upon a hill. They are well furnished with a very comfortable bed & all other amenities. The huts have a small veranda out front looking out to the mountains. Breakfast was quite adequate. At night an outdoor boma dinner was served.
