Kuzuko Game Reserve is 5-star ‘Big Five’ lodge in the Addo Elephant Park, Eastern Cape, South Africa. Prior to opening in 2007, this rural area experienced high unemployment, wildlife were under threat and the environment had been degraded. The Reserve was able to turn the situation around by purchasing and fencing 39,000 acres to restore the land and protect the wildlife. By working in partnership with the local community it has provided training and created more than 250 jobs so far. It is a truly inspirational model of how tourism can transform lives and communities.
