Our deck bar and restaurant offer guests magnificent views and authentic Karoo Cuisine. At Kuzuko we strive to capture the essence of home style Karoo in our cooking. There is something about Karoo food that brings people together, no matter what age, race, gender, culture or nationality they are. This is what we strive to achieve with our food. Each dish we serve should start a conversation with the one next to you and across from you. That, to us, is Karoo cooking at its very best. Our food evokes emotions from and an interaction between our guests. These make for great stories and precious memories.

These can be enjoyed in our wellness centre, in the privacy of your chalet, by the pool or on your private veranda. With zero sound and light pollution, crystal clear air, this tranquil setting is the perfect location for a wellness breakaway, family vacation, romantic escape, intimate wedding or conference.
Now South Africa's third largest national reserve, Addo Elephant National Park lies in the malaria-free Sundays River valley in the Eastern Cape, just over an hour's drive from Port Elizabeth and 9 hours’ drive from Cape Town (817km).
The Park stretches from the semi-arid karoo of the north, over the Zuurberg Mountains and down through the Sundays River valley to the coast, to between the mouths of the Sundays and Bushman's rivers.
Addo is home to one of the densest African Elephant populations on earth, roughly 550 of them. They once roamed the entire continent. By 1979 there were only 1.3 million African elephants left, and in 1989 they were added to the international list of the most endangered species, with only sixteen left in the Greater Addo area.
The Elephants play a key role in the environment - pulling down trees, breaking up bushes, and digging waterholes and trails. Their droppings are particularly important as baboons and birds pick them over for undigested seeds and nuts, and the dung beetle (the flightless dung beetle is only found in Addo) use them in which to reproduce.
More recently the Addo Elephant National Park has expanded to become the only park in the world to lay claim to Africa's 'Big 7' - elephant, rhino, lion, buffalo, leopard, southern right whale, and great white shark. It has done this by expanding along the coast from the Sundays River mouth towards Alexandria, and by adding an offshore marine reserve that includes St Croix Island and Bird Island, both essential breeding grounds for penguins and gannets. St Croix has the largest African penguin colony in the world.
