Kuzuko Game Reserve LodgeConcession of the Addo Elephant Park - Eastern Cape Karoo
Kuzuko Lodge is situated in a private concession within the Addo Elephant National Park in the Eastern Cape Karoo approx 2 hours drive from Port Elizabeth. This malaria free 15,000 hectare private section of the greater Addo Elephant National Park is home to the Big five as well as Cheetah. Kuzuko's Cheetah are habituated to allow guests to view them from a reasonably close distance on foot. They are not tame but simply tolerate guests whilst one gets to spend quality time close to the Cheetah, some super photographic opportunities are often presented on these walks.
The third largest National Park in South Africa, the Addo Elephant National Park has expanded enormously to include a wide biodiversity, landscapes, fauna and flora. Stretching from the semi-arid Karoo area here in the north around Darlington Dam and the Kuzuko Conservancy, over the rugged Zuurberg Mountains, through to the Sundays River valley and then south to the coast between the Sundays and Bushman's River mouths, Addo Elephant National Park is approximately 180 000 hectares (444 700 acres) in extent and this includes the Bird and St Croix Island groups.
