Hidden within the cavernous bushveld of the Sunday River region of the Eastern Cape lies the Addo Elephant National Park. It is here where the evening's silence is broken by the howl of the black-backed jackal and the francolins' call heralds each new dawn. With uninterrupted views of the Karoo Plains and the Zuurberg Mountains, Kuzuko Lodge lies in a private concession to the north of the Addo Elephant National Park, the third largest national park in South Africa in a malaria-free region.
In a setting of style and comfort, the Kuzuko Lodge Restaurant has various dining options, fabulous set menus, tempting light meals and, of course, a special menu for our younger guests. Open every day for brunch, high tea and dinner. Join us for a Boma evening and try our traditional over-the-coals meals, with less traditional side dishes for those who are less adventurous.

Kuzuko Lodge lies in a private concession to the north of the Addo Elephant National Park, with uninterrupted views of the Karoo Plains and the Zuurberg Mountains. The Addo Elephant National Park is the third largest national park in South Africa and is in a malaria-free region.
Deep within the shadows of the dense valley bushveld of the Sundays River region of the Eastern Cape lies the Addo Elephant National Park. Here, the evenings are punctuated by the strident howl of the black-backed jackal, and the call of the francolin heralds each new dawn. Safe from relentless persecution of elephants in the past, these grey leviathans of the bush now roam in peace. The original elephant section of the park was proclaimed in 1931, when only 11 elephants remained in the area. Today this finely tuned ecosystem is a sanctuary to over 450 elephants, Cape buffalo, black rhino, a variety of antelope species, as well as the unique flightless dung beetle, found almost exclusively in Addo. There are plans to expand the 164 000 ha Addo National Elephant Park into a 360 000 ha mega-park.
In addition, plans include the proposed proclamation of a 120 000 ha (296 500 acre) marine reserve that includes islands that are home to the world's largest breeding populations of Cape gannets and second largest breeding population of African penguins.
The area is classified as semi-arid to arid, receiving an average rainfall of less than 445 mm per year. Rainfall is relatively evenly distributed throughout the year, but there are two peaks, in February-March and October-November. Frost occurs at times in winter. There is no natural water in this section of the park and all waterholes are fed by boreholes. There are a number of small pans in the area but these are dry except in years of exceptional rainfall.
