Ever wondered what it’s like to scratch a rhino behind the ears?
Note: We will add more Rhino Encounter dates throughout the season. If there is a particular day you would like to do and encounter that is not on the schedule, please contact Betsey Brewer at email@example.com.
WHY DO WE OFFER THESE, AND WHERE DOES THE MONEY GO?
All proceeds from rhino encounters support rhinoceros conservation. In 2016, we raised $15,120 through encounters, and 100% of the proceeds were donated to Project Rhino KZN. Funds donated to Project Rhino KZN are used for anti-poaching and rhino conservation strategies, including ranger training, equipment & resources for game reserves, community education programs, informant funding, legislation & lobbying, and other initiatives
