SUNRISE & SUNSET
Game drives take place early morning and late afternoon. Our experienced guides are sure to track and point out the many species of game that roam the Kuzuko reserve. During our night drive nocturnal animals are out and about, and guests get to experience a unique side of the wild. Day visitors’ game drive times may vary.
Khoisan Cultural Exploration
At Kuzuko we believe that preserving cultural heritage is just as important as preserving our natural surroundings. As such, we are proud to provide guided walks where visitors can view Khoisan rock paintings that are approximately 400 years old. These ancient rock paintings are situated outside the main reserve on a 1500 acre Educational Reserve.
INSPIRING FUTURE GENERATIONS
Junior Ranger Programme
Children who are signed up for this programme receive dedicated attention from their ranger. This ranger will answer all their questions and teach them about plants, birds and ‘spoor’. During their family’s two or three night stay junior rangers go on nature walks and sit up front with the game ranger on game drives where they learn how to work with the radio and spotlight. Each junior ranger receives a branded T-shirt and cap. Upon completing the programme junior rangers receive a certificate.
BOOTS ON THE GROUND
This walk is intended to provide guests with the freedom to explore the unique landscape and its natural fauna and flora with a ranger in an area where there are no Big 5 animals. Giraffes may be encountered. All ages welcome.

EXPLORE THE WILD ON HORSE BACK
Kuzuko Horse Trails have partnered with our neighboring non big 5 game farm to ensure a unique and safe Karoo horse trail experience. We cater for small groups of four intermediate to experienced riders. Our Horseback safaris typically last between 1,5 and 2 hours, at a speed that allows plenty of time for wildlife viewing. Species that you can look forward to viewing include giraffe, springbuck, black wildebeest and sable, not to mention unique bird species and awesome fauna.
TWITCH UNIQUE KAROO SPECIES
Birding at Kuzuko Lodge is an incredible experience. Whether you are relaxing around the Chalets, or sitting in the A Rocha Memorial Hide, or out on a birding safari game drive, you will encounter a rich diversity of Karoo birds to add to your life list. When at the hide, look out for rings – part of a long term project monitoring the birds in the area.
EXPLORE THE KAROO
4 x 4 Trails
Enjoy a scenic self-drive with varying degrees of difficulty. The route takes you along the curves of mountains where you can view unique indigenous Karoo vegetation and wildlife. We offer a spot for a picnic lunch in the dry riverbed and guests have the option of pre-ordering a picnic basket.
SPECIES SPECIFIC PHOTOGRAPHY
Photographic safaris are limited to small group sizes, allowing you to better connect with your guide and ensuring that you make the most of every wildlife encounter. A photographic safari is one of the best ways to preserve your safari memories, improve your art and impress your friends back home.
CONSERVATION IN ACTION
Cheetahs in the Wild
Our Reserve Manager, Gerhard de Lange’s passion for conservation has led Kuzuko down a very special path, especially in the conservation and wilding of captive born-and-bred cheetah. To share this passion with you, and to welcome you in making an impact in conservation we offer you the opportunity to join our trained guides in tracking some of these individuals.
AFRICAN NIGHT SKY
Enjoy breathtaking views of the African night sky during our evening cosmic safaris.
Kuzuko Lodge offers some of the best stargazing in Africa. Our trained game rangers trade their binoculars for laser pointers as they guide you through the galaxies, stars, planets and other astral bodies through the lodge’s eight inch telescope.
