Because You Live Here!

Meet Southwick’s Zoo’s rhinos, Thelma and Louise! Registration is now available for April and May 2017 Rhino Encounters (additional dates for the summer will be added soon). This program offers participants the opportunity to get close to and touch the two white rhinos found at Southwick’s while they help support rhino conservation! All proceeds from the encounters are donated to rhinoceros conservation. Last year we raised and donated $15,120 to Project Rhino KZN.
