Endangered Rhino Safari 2017

 

endangered rhinos safari 2017

 

This nine day safari to South Africa focuses predominantly on the plight of the endangered rhino and is a unique behind the scenes wildlife and conservation experience.

The safari is escorted by Ray Dearlove, otherwise affectionately known as Rhino Ray, the Founder of The Australian Rhino Project - TARP. Ray has spent a considerable amount of time coordinating this project both in Australia and on the ground in South Africa. This is your chance to travel with Ray to witness first hand the struggle for Rhino conservation in South Africa. The safari will visit two unique eco‐systems all with established rhino conservation projects underway. You will meet and spend time with some of the leaders in the field of rhino conservation.

The journey aims to provide you with an insight into what the real conservation issues are, how they are being tackled, how the Rhino are being protected and the commitment required in order to save the species from extinction. It is also a fabulous safari with plenty of game viewing activities and will appeal to both first‐time travelers to Africa, or those who have a deeper interest in the wildlife. Having Ray escort this trip is a real bonus as not only is his wildlife knowledge superb, he is also fun and a great raconteur, so there will be many exciting fire‐side stories!

This unique journey offers a wonderful African safari, the chance to travel with a small group of like-minded people and an opportunity to support the conservation of a magnificent endangered species.
