I stayed two nights at Kudu Ridge Game Ranch with my sister and we really enjoyed the time. We slept in a tend outside and we had everything what we need. Thank you to Brian and Jenny for the great time and for your warm hospitality. I recommend Kudu Ridge Game Ranch :-)

What an experience. Stayed there as a base for the Addo Elephant Park 50 mile trail race. Hosts Brian and Jenny were magnificent. Just so friendly and understanding.

Hi Mark, It was a pleasure hosting you and after that 50 mile trail run in the Zuurberg Mountains you definitely confirmed an opinion that I have long held of the Irish!!!! I hope that you will be back for the 100 miler next year. Listening to Sky TV rugby commentary will certainly take on a new meaning for us....

This place is fantastic, rustic, bush tents and chalets, Family run, safe, nearby safari's organized, good bar + food. Reasonable price. Roof top view of sunset is brilliant. Because of where you are you will meet other interesting people. Got engaged here and will have to come back now.

This is not a luxury resort. The drive to the lodge from the main road is not one for timid drivers, but is easily accomplished with a foot on the gas pedal and a disregard for the suspension. The accommodation is slightly spartan but perfectly clean and comfortable. What makes this place special is the people who own and run...

I really appreciate you review. Our philosophy is to achieve exactly what you have described which possibly puts us in a niche market that may appeal to some guests and possibly not to others. Having said that we make a point of getting to know our guests as you never know who you are going to meet at Kudu Ridge,...

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.

This is not a five star luxury resort, but a very intimate place where the owners are dedicated to make your stay as pleasant as possible. You can see and feel the personal commitment in everything.

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.

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.
