The Zululand Rhino Reserve has a vital population of White Rhino that are monitored daily to ensure their well being and safety.The most effective method of being able to mark these animals is to notch the ears and micro-chip each individual.As a result, the reserve has initiated its own Rhino Management Programme.

This unique experience is being made available to like-minded conservation enthusiasts.From the moment the rhino is darted everyone gets involved, with each guest being invited to participate in either the micro chipping, notching or measuring (horn and spine) of the Rhino.

Through this process, the guests are treated to a truly unique and hands on experience whilst promoting wildlife conservation and the preservation of these amazing animals.
