My husband and I visited Kuzuko lodge at the start of August. We were warmly greeted with a welcome drink upon arrival and the hospitality never stopped from this moment. The lodge is beautiful and blends into the landscape perfectly. The food, staff, coffee and attention to detail is top class. Our ranger Angus treated us to 3 game drives, his knowledge, enthusiasm and passion for the animals and the conservation is contagious. We got up close and personal with elephants, rhinos, zebras cheetahs, buffalo and many more wild animals over the 2 days. We were treated to sunrises and sunsets with the animals. Angus' knowledge is incredible and we learned so much over the few days. He had a student with him, Precious, who added further fun, knowledge and care during our stay. Angus' mochas are something you need to experience, a rusk or two and a mocha in the middle of the wild..What more could you ask for? Kya's delicious cappuccinos kept us fuelled and nothing was too much to ask for during our stay. We couldn't have asked for a better way to end our SA honeymoon. Thank you everyone at Kuzuko Lodge. See you all again someday. Le grá, Edel & Patrick ❤️…
Wonderful people running a stunning Lodge. Room, food and service were outstanding. The game drive was lots of fun and very informative. The pandemic really hurt these Lodges in South Africa, but I am sure that they will recover and thrive. You need to visit Kuzuko at least once in your life!
Kuzuko - truly a place of glory as the name states. The devastating effects of the pandemic is still evident with lower occupancy and only skeleton staff operating on a tighter budget. The staff and experience were amazing none the less with hopes that all will return back ‘normal’. Let us support them!🙌😇
We stayed here at the beginning of July. Having never been to South Africa before let alone a safari I can truly say it as been a wonderful experience. The staff are helpful, friendly and kind, nothing was too much trouble, just fantastic. The accommodation was 5 star. Our ranger Angus was wonderful making us, which is now our new drink the choca Mocha. Also managing to find us the the big game and many more animals!! I can honestly say this was a truly amazing experience and one we will never forget. Anyone wishing to stay here will not be disappointed. If you are looking for an amazing experience I can not recommend Kuzuko lodge enough. Phenomenal!
We had the most fantastic and real experience at this incredible establishment. Location, views, exquisite staff, wonderful accommodation, game drive and atmosphere are simply unbeatable. This was a life experience we will never forget. Thank you to the team at Kuzuko for making us feel special and appreciated. We will make sure we return many times. This place is a must-experience for anyone wanting to see the best of the best.
Look. The room is really nice, view, waitress and the service is nice and professional. But we choose to go to this place for the experience of the game drive. We went for a drive twice, and did not see any of the big 5 that were advertised. At first we thought "well, its a really bad luck that we came all the way from asia, paid thousands of dollars in flights, drive so many hours and paid $700 a night to NOT see big animals, only gazelles and ostrich. But its nature, we can't just expect them to be present whenever we want to". But apparently we CAN!! When we said that its a bad luck and how the other family guest managed to see cheetah and lions from a very close range, the ranger called S*** said that it's because they went with the manager and the manager is using the radio to track the lions tracking device. And then we were like "why the hell didn't we used it?????" And he replied "because I don't like using it and it ruins the experience, i like tracking the animals". Well i think the manager really needs to train these rangers and guides. Guests who stays in a leisure game reserve will want to SEE big animals, and were spending so much money to do so. And the ranger should try to help the guests for that experience. Guests who want to TRACK will HUNT in a game farm. Really really pissed and disappointed to only see elephant dungs and getting a "sorry you didn't see anything". We literally saw more animals (zebra, antelope, warthogs, baboons) on the way home then during our stay.…
The welcome at the lodge was very warm and friendly. The location is really beautiful, endless views of hills and just peaceful. The chalet was nice and big and well-serviced every day - cleaned well. The view from the chalets is lovely and so calming every morning. The staff members were really friendly all the time and got us everything we asked for. The service is some of the best I have ever received anywhere I've been to. The wifi was a bit patchy for me, although others didn't struggle. Food was also really nice.
This is definitely one of the best places I have ever stayed at. Beyond expectations. The venue is beautiful, the staff were absolutely amazing. I don't think I've come across such great service. The food was really good. Every single thing was just totally fantastic. We went there for a conference. But had lots of downtime to enjoy this fantastic lodge.
I won a weekend trip to Kuzuko Lodge with my family. To be honest that was a good thing because I'm not sure I would have chosen to visit this place otherwise. Somehow eastern cape is more connected to garden route and the sea than game drives in my mind. But boy, was I wrong! Kuzuko Game Reserve is one of the prettiest parks I've seen. Not only you get to see a lot of animals,and you definetly do, but you really enjoy yourself while driving because of the gorgeous scenery.
On the weekend of 1 April 2022, my fiancé and I visited Kuzuko Lodge. The team went above and beyond to make sure that our stay was nothing short of magical. The team assisted my fiancé in his plans to propose. After the proposal, we were met with hearty congratulations from all the staff at the lodge. The staff felt like friends by the time we departed. They were so accommodating, helpful and friendly. The setting of Lodge speaks true of the African bush - the perfect place to relax and experience South Africa in its natural beauty. We were left speechless many times by the beauty of the lodge. The lodge also ensured a phenomenal culinary experience! Breakfast, lunch or supper - you won’t be left disappointed! Their menu is also complimented by a wonderful wine list. We cannot thank the Kuzuko Team enough for being part of a very special weekend. They will always have a special place in our hearts and be part of our love story! We will definitely be back and can recommend them confidently! Our biggest thanks to the team!…
