Desert Rhino Camp – Rhino Tracking On Foot & By Vehicle *
Typically set out in the morning by vehicle, following behind the Save the Rhino (SRT) monitors as they track one of their charges – the desert-adapted black rhino. Due to the vast terrain, long distances can be covered, with other wildlife to be seen along the way. Once a rhino has been located, tracking by foot can take place depending on the position and/or location of the rhino. It is impossible to feel anything other than amazingly fortunate when in the company of such incredible Perissodactyla.
* Note: Rhino tracking remains the key focus and purpose at Desert Rhino Camp, a standard activity included on a FI rate basis and available to all guests.
