THE FATE OF AFRICA’S RHINO GROWS EVER MORE SERIOUS – THE POACHING ONSLAUGHT THAT STARTED IN 2008 HAS LEFT THIS ICONIC ANIMAL TEETERING ON THE BRINK OF EXTINCTION
OUR MISSION IS TO PROTECT RHINO, TODAY AND FOR FUTURE GENERATIONS - IN THE GREATER KRUGER AREA, THE EPICENTRE OF THE POACHING CRISIS
The Rhino Revolution orphanage is situated within close proximity to Khaya Ndlovu Manor House. It is not open to the general public for viewing, however Manor House guests can arrange to be taken on an educational tour of the facility, which fully explains the responsibility of the orphanage.
Currently there are no rhino orphans in the centre; they were released after dehorning in November 2018. The released rhinos are fiercely protected via various counter-poaching methods that include K9 and horse-back mounted patrols.
Due to the continued exploitation of our wildlife, the RR facility has now opened its doors to other species. Most of the patients have a sad tale to tell, having been confiscated from illegal trafficking syndicates, often at the international airports, by the authorities.
There are several happy-ever-after tales however, substantiated by the shrieking cries from a skulk of jackals, which can be heard as the sun dips below the mountain every evening! They are the latest release from the facility, now enjoying life in the wild, right back where they belong!
