Great experience!Posted Apr 14, 2014
Pros: It is in the malaria free zone. Combines luxury and outdoor experiences very well. Although it was considered the winter season, weather was great,
Cons: Website explanation of arrival timing with relation to first safari (one hour window),
Location: Very remote location.
Loved the facility and friendly staff. It is a very long gravel road drive to get there and we we told that check in did not begin before 2:00 so we arrived at about 3:30 already too late for the afternoon safari that left at 3:00, so they gave us credit for any of the additional actives they offered the next day, I.e. Cheetah walk, caves, spa. We availed ourselves of everything they had to offer. We had great morning and afternoon safaris with Rangers Rodwell and Jonathan who were both excellent at tracking the animals. We saw lions (and their kill), Cape Buffalo, elephants, rhino, cheetahs, ostrich, baboons, monkeys, every sort of antelope and wildebeest, and even saw a tortoise. The birds were abundant and beautiful. Driving into the park we came across about a dozen giraffes. The food, including afternoon tea at 2:00 was very well done.

Superb KuzukoPosted Mar 11, 2014
Pros: Staff, rooms, view, food.
Cons: The only thing I can think of is putting a sign at the junction with the main road. Just to take the doubt out of the dirt track drive.
Location: Location is superb. It's all right there. We saw Rhino, Elephant, antelope, baboons, zebra, kudu,cheetah, secretary birds, and many others. Brilliant
Loved our stay at Kuzuko Lodge. As we drove along the dirt track leading to the lodge we wondered if we were going the right way. There are very few signs and the road is long. Eventually we arrived at reception where you leave your car and jump in a safari jeep for the last couple of miles to the lodge. The Lodge itself is situated at the top of a hill overlooking the park. Beautiful views. We thought that the food was very good with a reasonable choice. The rooms were excellent. Lovely outside space with view. Inside everything clean and plenty of room. Fantastic. The safaris were excellent with well informed guides who were always enthusiastic and doing their very best to make sure that you got to see all the animals. Following a running black Rhino for a while and driving up a track to be met by Saracen the large Bull Elephant walking towards us was unforgettable. As he approached within about 20 feet you could tell who was going to give way ! We loved Kuzuko Lodge and after leaving we recommended it to several fellow travellers. It's also close to Addo National Park so after leaving Kuzuko we drove south through Addo. Another amazing experience Absolutely recommend a stay at Addo. The staff are excellent and you can tell that they are all very happy working at the lodge which makes the visitor happy too.

game drivePosted Jul 3, 2013
Pros: the beauty of the karoo
Cons: the food could be better not bad though but not the best part of the stay
Location: you have a 40km/36 mile drive on dirt which takes a little longer then I had planned
the game drives would have been better if the driver had taken the time to slow down - our fault though for not saying something straight away - scenery stunning and we saw lots of buck, the herd of elephants and the 2 lions and cheetah - the food was decent to good and the staff were very friendly and accommodating. It was a nice introduction to the game experience for my 5 year old daughter. The weather can be cold on the drives so I was happy for my down jacket and hat - gloves would have been a good thing to add to your packing list if you are there in the winter.

brilliant service and sight but too few animalsPosted May 21, 2012 on Hotels.com
Excellent service, beautiful location, very tasty meals. Yet, we found it very difficult to find the direction to the Lodge, no sign from the N10, it is almost impossible to get there without a phone call on the road ; the map on the Internet site is useless and not helpful at all. The reserve is awesome in terms of scenery, but we were disappointed with the lack of game, only 2 lions and one leopard said to be present in the reserve (we did not see any of them), it is a bit "light" with regards to the promise of "Big Five".

Great valuePosted Nov 7, 2011
This is a great place to go if you want some luxury, relaxing times and animals. Dont expect to find lots of animals every where as they arent loads and sometimes hard to find but it adds to the event. Especially would recommend with kids.
