There is only one thing really bad in Kudu Ridge: when the time to leave comes and you have to say goodbye to Pedro. It is the best place to stay and relax with your old friends and making a new one as Andrew and Alison.

Booked the hotel because of the reviews, but getting there it was a whole different story. Hard to contact the reception. Only an intercom and no one answered. Had to drive 5k and ask for help in another Hotel. The lady called Kudu Ridge and they gave her the gate passcode. Drove all the way back and could then get...

You refer to many things here which I find confusing such as an intercom at the entrance which doesn't exist. I think suffice to say that not everyone enjoys a bush lodge and the bush experience, judging by all our ratings the vast majority of our guests do and I'm grateful to them.

We were welcomed at the ranch by some happy barking dogs, a wonderfully friendly couple who were great hosts to us and had a delicious dinner during our stay while we we were going to Addo Elephant Park (about a 10 min drive away), lovely people and a great secluded property which was very relaxing!

What a lovely Family! And they made me feel like being part of it. The tents are very large and comfortable. The food was delicious. The tour to Addo Elephant Park was awesome. And the evenings around the fire... unforgetable. And last but not least please give Pedro a kiss from me. :-)

The best place to be, Brian, Jenny, Andrew and Alison all make you feel so welcome from the moment you arrive. The game walks are breathtaking, and the stories told around the bar in the evenings are great, can't wait until my next visit.
