Kuzuko Lodge offers fine five star safari accommodation on a private concession in the Addo Elephant National Park.
Kuzuko Lodge forms part of the greater Addo Elephant National Park region, situated north-west of Addo Main Camp. The lodge is built on a hill overlooking vast expanses of the majestic semi-arid Karoo landscapes. Just a two-hour drive from Port Elizabeth Airport, Kuzuko Lodge offers a complete breakaway from the urban environment. During the night, the veld comes alive with the cries of black-backed jackal, which is then met with a symphony of birdsong at dawn. This Big Five reserve is now home to the well-known lion ‘Sylvester’, who famously escaped from the Karoo National Park in 2015 and 2016.
There are 24 luxurious chalets at Kuzuko Lodge. Every chalet offers privacy and comfort. The main features of the chalets are the private decks, with their mind-blowing views across the wilderness. The spacious interiors include en suite bathrooms with separate baths and walk-in showers, tea and coffee stations, flat screen televisions, WiFi and direct dialing telephones. Guests have a choice between double or twin beds as well as pull-out sleeper couch that can be used as a bed for children. There are even kid-friendly patios to keep wandering toddlers safe without spoiling the breathtaking panoramic view.
The restaurant at Kuzuko Lodge takes pride in only serving fresh locally sourced ingredients, such as mouth-watering Kudu fillets that can be relished on the outside deck or even under the stars at the bush braai boma. The infinity pool is the perfect place to cool down while enjoying a refreshing cocktail from the bar. A wide range of treatments are available at the Wellness Center, and the therapists can conduct massages in the privacy of the chalets.
There are plenty of activities that can provide hours of entertainment at Kuzuko Lodge. Game drives during the morning, afternoon and even at night provide guests with the chance to spot a variety of different animals. During the morning and afternoon, there is a good chance of coming across elephants, buffalo and even a rhinoceros, while lions are more easily found at night. Guided hikes are available, as is the chance to visit bushman paintings that are thousands of years old. On clear nights, the Karoo sky can be investigated with an 8-inch-telescope on a cosmic safari.
