RHINO CONSERVATION SAFARI – KWANDWE PRIVATE RESERVE, SOUTH AFRICA

This 3 night/4 day itinerary provides a deep insight into Kwandwe’s black and white rhinos and their differing behavioural patterns along with the growing issues of Rhino poaching and the necessary monitoring and reaction measures needed to keep these diminishing populations from being targeted by rhino horn smugglers. The programme allows guests the opportunity to get involved in all activities used in the prevention of rhino poaching including the tracking, notching, micro chipping and darting of the rhinos at the reserve.

Under the supervision of experts, the rhino is darted in order to plant microchips into the horns and perform ear-notching for future identification – an essential task to ensure the preservation of this endangered species. The best time is generally 1 May – 30 September due to cooler weather conditions, however it can be done all year. The procedure is always subject to the availability of the wildlife management team as well as the availability of rhinos that need to be notched for conservation purposes. Not suitable for children under the age of 16 years old.

This expereince can be combined with a self-drive itienrary along the Garden Route or a flying safari taking in key highlights of South Africa. Call us on 01386 830264 or email [email protected] to ask how we can combine this experience into your next journey to South Africa!
