Kuzuko Lodge – The Place of Glory
Operated by Legacy Hotels & Resorts, Kuzuko Lodge & Reserve is a private contractual area in the north of the greater Addo Elephant National Park − the third largest national park in South Africa in a malaria-free region.
With uninterrupted views of the Karoo Plains and the Zuurberg Mountains, Kuzuko Lodge is not only known as place of glory but also of absolute seclusion and tranquillity. This exclusive lodge is a must for every nature lover who enjoys to relax and take in the sounds of the wild.
Kuzuko means place of glory in the Xhosa native language. Once you stand on the restaurant deck upon arrival gazing over the never-ending expanse of the Karoo, you’ll understand exactly why it’s called ‘Place of Glory’. It’s soul soothing…Think superbly appointed private chalets, sweeping hilltop vistas, sumptuous cuisine and a ‘wilderness wellness centre’ – The Main Lodge all perfectly integrated into the natural surrounds. Designed in such a way that the floor to ceiling windows ensure that the beauty of the location is never lost.
The deck, bar and restaurant offers stunning views while guest savour 5-star authentic Karoo Cuisine. The spacious family lounge offers free WiFi and space to spend quality time or simply snuggle up in front of the fire place.
