Activities at Kuzuko Lodge
This 15000 hectare private section bordering the greater Addo Elephant National Park is home to the Big five as well as Cheetah. Being part of the arid Karoo region and just coming out of a severe drought the herd sizes in this unique reserve may not compare to what can be found in the likes of the Kruger National Park. However you will go far and wide to find the quality of up close game viewing Kuzuko has to offer. Kuzuko’s qualified game rangers have a passion for this unique area and they go above and beyond to ensure that all guests leave having fallen in love with the Karoo and its unusual beauty.
