Rhinos can be an elusive animal to see in the wild, due to significant poaching in southern Africa. These large yet kind and gentle animals are such a treat to watch – especially when they are with their young. They have a lot of personality and are a fascinating species.
The conservation branch of Wilderness Safaris is very involved in efforts to protect the rhino population in Africa and has been involved in rhino conservation for more than 20 years. One interesting program is Rhino Relocation, which is moving rhinos from points of pressure around the continent to Botswana – a favorite destination of everyone at Esplanade!
Another program is the Save the Rhino Trust, which focuses on saving the last remaining Desert Adapted Black Rhino in Namibia.
Take a look at Wilderness’s programs, and make sure to see rhinos for yourself on safari!
