My wife and I arrived at Kuzuko Lodge after a drive from Port Elizabeth Airport , the last 40 km along a gravel road. On arrival at the initial reception area we left the car undercover and was welcomed with a cool drink then collected and driven to the main Lodge itself.
During our stay of three days we saw all the animals we wanted to and got up close to them. In fact we came upon two lionesses in a dry river bed who had just caught a young Zebra. The Zebra was only a few days old and still alive. The Lions were playing with it and the Zebra was very distressed but that's wildlife, however upsetting it is to us.
On all the game drives we saw different animals and a big thanks to Adel for her tenacity in finding them, especially the Cheetahs which were really hard to spot.
The food was incredible and we really enjoyed every meal during our stay.
The attention to detail by the staff was great , at the end of every game drive a staff member was waiting to open the doors of the land cruisers for you and then in the reception there were two other members of staff handing out hot hand towels.
On returning from the evening drives the pathway to the reception was lit by oil lanterns which was a nice touch and in the main lodge there were two large log fires lit.
The accommodation is really nice and private with fantastic views.
All in all we had a fantastic time and thanks to all the Lodge Staff who made it fantastic
My wife and I came to stay here for 2 days of our honeymoon.
I have nothing but great things to say about this place.
The welcome was so warm and friendly. All the staff were fantastic.
Our chalet was phenomenal, wonderfully decorated, fantastic bed, great facilities and the views were spectactular.
The food was outstanding. Breakfast, lunch and dinner. Good options and staff again were brilliant.
Our ranger did a great job, the drives were just such a great experience. Going out and spotting what you can.
We were very fortunate too as we managed to see all of the big 5. The rhino made an appearance for, what we were told, was the first time in 5 months!
We got really close to a herd of elephants, the water buffalo, both male and female lions and the cheetahs.
Our ranger also regularly asked what we'd like to do and provided us with blankets and ponchos, as the drives were cold. We also stopped during the drives for coffee and biscuits in the morning and beers and wine in the evening.
The pool gives spectacular views out over the valley too.
The house keeping was brilliant too, twice a day, while we were out on drives, the housekeeping came in and prepared your room foe you coming back.
My only regret was that we only had 2 nights. I just hope that I get the chance to come back here in the future.
*the only point I would add is our arrival was a little rushed, in that we got to the receptions at 2, and the time it took to get to the lodge/our room meant we'd to rush lunch and skip the complimentary hand massage to make the 3:30 drive. The hand massage would have been nice.....
The animals are not scared of the vehicles travelling near them. We experienced some real magic moments in Addo.
