As a family-run, private game reserve and lodge, our team understands the importance of time spent together as a family. Planning a family safari holiday is not an easy task on your own, especially as you need to consider multiple and diverse requirements.

Thankfully you have come to the right place! We are here to assist you with your family safari holiday requirements. We’ve put together information to help you find out more about Kudu Ridge Addo Game Lodge and our family-friendly Addo region. We can also offer you a great Addo family safari special. We are only a call or email if you need to ask us any other details about our haven in the Eastern Cape of South Africa.

Top 4 Family Safari Holiday Activities

The Addo region offers a wide range of activities to suit the whole family. Here are our top four family safari holiday activities:

  1. ADDO ELEPHANT NATIONAL PARK: All our Kudu Ridge guests delight in the time spent in this Big 5 national park. As a family you can enjoy a self-drive through the park or book our guided Addo safari tour. Kudu Ridge Game Lodge is situated a short 15 minutes drive from the park’s main entrance. We are happy to share suggested routes, picnic spots, popular waterholes and answer any questions.
  2. SUNDAYS RIVER BOAT CRUISE: Another popular year-round experience and great for families with children of any age. The cruise passes the Alexandria coastal dune field and stops at one of the highest sand dunes. Anyone wanting to climb up will enjoy spectacular views of Algoa bay.
  3. SAND BOARDING: The Addo sand boarding experience is a three-hour adventure where you get to ride down some of the biggest dunes in South Africa. Perfect for adventurous families. These dunes form the largest and least degraded dune fields in South Africa and overlook the Addo Elephant National Park.
  4. CANOEING SAFARI: Enjoy the slow pace of canoeing along the Sundays River. Watch birds and reptiles from a different, quieter perspective with the gentle lapping of the water on your canoe. The kids will enjoy the motion of the canoe while you can sit and relax.
