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! THANKS ANDREW AND ALLIE!

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.

Kudu Ridge just feels like home, from the moment you arrive the hosts Brian & Jenny and Andrew & Alison make you feel like family. Nothing is too much for them and the relaxed atmosphere is felt by all. The tented rooms or chalets make getaways with friends and family so special, the Addo bush veld surround you and nature...

Although no more than 100m from a tar road, Kudu Ridge is completely hidden from the world. The permanent safari tents are clean, surprisingly comfortable and well equipped. The communal braai area had a fantastic atmosphere with Brian, Jenny, Andrew and Alison the perfect hosts. Ideal base to visit the Addo National Elephant Park. Don't miss out on the safaris...
