Baby giraffe adopted by pre-school class

Recently, four-year-old Leo in the Giraffe Class at Golden Pond School decided he’d adopt a giraffe at Kuzuko Lodge for his class. This would be part of his show and tell. Well, show and tell has never been this exciting! Our General Manager agreed and asked the class to name a baby giraffe in the reserve. The class voted and the result was Rosy!

Welcome to Kuzuko Lodge Rosy and thank you to Golden Pond School for a wonderful initiative.
