Our place of glory is blessed with an incredible variety of available activities – each of which is conducted by a well-trained, extremely knowledgeable guide whose goal is to keep you entertained and safe.
Game drives may take place as the sun rises, mid morning, during the afternoon, as the sun sets and at night depending on the time of year. Our experienced guides are sure to track and point out the many species of fauna and flora which occur on Kuzuko. With nocturnal animals out and about, sunrise, sunset and night drives offer a very different view of the wild. Dependent on the time of your game drive, please enjoy a complimentary hot beverage like hot chocolate, tea or coffee with home-made rusks or a snack and local beverage. Bottled water is supplied complimentary with all wildlife activities.
During a cheetah experience the fastest animal on land invites you for a leisurely stroll at Kuzuko… Our cheetahs have learnt to tolerate the presence of humans, which allows for the exclusive experience of getting up close and personal with one of Africa’s big cats during a guided walking safari. While enjoying unique photo opportunities, guests are left in awe as they come away humbled by spending time on ground level and within close proximity of these impressively aloof predators. An additional fee may be charged for this activity on behalf of the Kuzuko Foundation to assist funding their Wildlife Rehabilitation efforts – assisting us in our endeavours to preserve Africa’s wildlife legacy.
Our guided nature walk and cave exploration takes visitors back in time with the magic of 400 year old Khoisan cave paintings. Located just outside of the Big 5 reserve, this area is stocked with plains game and the walk forms a large part of our community conservation education component.
The African sky comes alive as night falls over our place of glory – creating perfect conditions for a cosmic safari. While they may be light years away, the heavenly bodies seem close enough to touch as Kuzuko offers some of the best stargazing in Africa all because of our off the beaten track location. The trained game rangers trade their binoculars for laser pointers as they guide you through galaxies, pointing out stars, planets, moons and other astral bodies through the lodge’s eight inch stargazing telescope. This uniquely exclusive activity offers the magical experience of viewing not just the majestic Big Five at the lodge, but also the glory of the mystical sky above the lodge.
Challenging 4×4 routes offer guests the ride of a lifetime, while bird watching enthusiasts are in for a real ‘tweet’ as the diversity of birdlife within the park is nothing short of amazing. All the above activities are weather dependent.
I'm sorry that at check out we did not get the time to scribble a special note to you in the BiG visitors book! A huge thank you from the Duckitt-family for the hours spent with you In your "Ranger". These were no normal "drives" they were really exceptional! With great excitement we set off everyday in anticipation of what we're going to see and the new knowledge we were to gain! Not just the fauna & flora but reaching for the stars and beyond. Thank you for making each drive such an exciting adventure which each of us will remember with great fondness. Your knowledge and the way you communicate this to others from all ages and countries was exemplary. We wish you and your young family much happiness. Thank you again you made our stay one that will not be forgotten! With our warmest regards,
Monique, Mark, Noa, Peta and Eli
