SUNRISE & SUNSET
Game drives take place as the sun rises, during the afternoon and as the sun sets. Our experienced guides are sure to track and point out the many species of game that roam the Kuzuko reserve. With our nocturnal animals out and about, sunrise and sunset drives offer a very different view of the wild.
Khoisan Cultural Exploration
At Kuzuko we believe that preserving cultural heritage is just as important as preserving our natural surroundings. As such, we are proud to provide guided walks where visitors can examine Khoisan rock paintings that are approximately 400 years old. These ancient rock paintings are situated outside the main reserve on a 1500 acre Educational Reserve.
INSPIRING FUTURE GENERATIONS
Junior Ranger Programme
Children who are signed up for this programme are allocated with a dedicated ranger. This ranger will answer all their questions and teach them about plants, birds and ‘spoor’. During their two or three night stay junior rangers go on nature walks and sit up front with the game ranger on game drives where they learn how to work with the radio and spotlight. Each junior ranger receives a branded T-shirt and cap. Upon completing the programme junior rangers receive a certificate.
BOOTS ON THE GROUND
This walk is intended to provide guests with the freedom to explore the unique landscape and its natural fauna and flora with a ranger in an area where there are no Big 5 animals. Giraffes may be encountered. All ages welcome.
