Resting high on a hill and commanding seemingly endless views of Addo Elephant National Park below, Kuzuko Lodge’s location in a private sector of the park, along with its 5-star status, lends itself to what is undoubtedly a rewarding safari experience conveniently found between South Africa’s Garden Route and the Wild Coast.
Addo is not only the 3rd largest park in the country—it is also home to an impressive elephant and buffalo population, thought to exceed 600 and 400 in number, respectively. The park’s borders extend to the Indian Ocean, making it the only park in the world to have the so-called ‘Big 7’: lion, elephant, rhino, leopard, buffalo, great white shark, and whale.
Kuzuko Lodge’s policy is one of inclusion as they welcome children of all ages to their 24 Chalets—3 of which are universal access. Their en-suite bathrooms have baths and walk-in showers, while the bedrooms have mini-bars, tea/coffee-making facilities, TVs, and private viewing decks. Daily life at the lodge revolves around game drives at dusk and dawn, strolls with cheetahs, guided nature walks to 400-year-old Khoisan paintings, stargazing, and 4X4 trails.
