We had a wonderful stay at the Kuzuko over the weekend. Did see some Cheetahs and Lions in Kuzuko but they also provided a permit for Addo which I could drive down on our return and could see some Elephants and other animals.






Myself and the family had a great stay at Kuzuko, we loved the spectacular views of the dense valley, we likes watching the Elephants at Addo.
