Frequently asked

Will I be guaranteed to see the Big Five, particularly lions?

During the early years at Kuzuko all members of the Big 5 were reintroduced to the reserve. However, as the animals roam wild and free in our reserve there are no guarentees that all the members will be visible on every game with the Cape leopard being the most ellusive. To increase your chance of seeing these amazing animals we would suggest that you take part in as many game drives as possible.

Do I need binoculars?

Binoculars are very important. You will not always have the animals close by. A good pair of 8 x 30 or 8 x 42 would be ideal. We also offer binoculars to rent from our front office. There are various rental options available.

Is the water safe to drink while at the Lodge?

We rely on borehole water and the quality can vary from time to time. It’s entirely up to you what you prefer. We have spring water in glass bottles for sale at the bar should you so prefer. If you are booked on a full board package, we include complementary bottled water during turndown service at night and on the game drives.

Do you allow children on safari?

Children of all ages are welcome on game drives. We do our best to keep families with children together on game drives. Children on game drive may however affect the way members of the big five will be approached.

Children are most welcome at Kuzuko Lodge. We cater for all their needs from child friendly decks, kiddie menus and sleeper couches to a special activity programme overseen by a dedicated game ranger.

Do you offer Game Drives in Addo Elephant National Park?

Kuzuko Lodge is built high upon a hill in our private game reserve bordering the northern part of the Greater Addo Elephant National Park area.

Game drives are conducted by our own qualified rangers our private game reserve not traversing bonderies.

Self drives are possible in the National Park. The closest entrance is approximately 120km 1.5 hours drive from our lodge.
