First Rhinos

Today I saw my first Rhinos since I arrived at Thanda. After the Assistant Wildlife Manager, Mariana, helped me with my broken down Land Rover (I would not start again after I had stopped near one of the waterholes and we had to push start the engine) she was very kind and took me along to look for some White Rhinoceros on a remote part of the reserve.

We found a crash of four Rhino!

The leather foot band on one of the Rhinos is a satellite tracking collar to keep track of these highly endangered animals, which are once again under severe threat from poachers.

We also stopped at the largest dam of the reserve and I got a glimpse of the only Crocodile currently living on Thanda.

Enjoy the pictures!
