We hope you brushed up on your general knowledge! The less you have to Google, the better obviously, although our quiz is intended to teach us all new things, so we don’t mind if you do. E-mail your answers to craig(at)rhinoafrica.com and I’ll announce the winner and post the answers later today.
Bonus: Name the following three Animals.
Craig Harding is the general go-to guy at Rhino Africa. He's pretty chilled out so he's the right guy to have by your side on an intrepid adventure. He says 'the journey is the destination' so we just all nod and agree - it's better that way...
