At Rhino Africa, we love rhinos so much that we named ourselves after them! As our real-life unicorns, we celebrate what makes them special by giving you a visual feast of rhinos in pictures. Keep scrolling and enjoy these chubby, prehistoric-looking creatures so dear to our hearts.
The rhino is a member of the Big 5 in Africa and is known for their horns growing from their snouts. These horns are also why they're named "rhinoceros", which means "nose horn".
Did you know that the black rhino is not actually black at all? They are also called hook-lipped rhinos since their snout is shaped to help them browse shrubs and trees.
It's a joy to see rhino calves in the wild. They can weigh anything between 35-65kg, so although they're babies, they weigh as much as a full-grown human adult!
At Rhino Africa, we're besotted with rhinos. We make it our mission to protect this species for future generations, and by travelling with us, you also directly contribute to our conservation efforts!
It's heartbreaking, but unfortunately, rhino numbers have declined over the years. Although they once peacefully roamed throughout Africa, today, very few rhinos survive outside of national parks and reserves where they can be protected from poaching and habitat loss.
Trying to save a species is not an easy task, and it can't be done alone. We work closely with our Impact Partner WildlifeACT to do our bit to try and protect various wildlife species, including the rhino, so that future generations can also admire them in all their glory.
We believe wildlife should mostly be left to their own devices. However, sometimes, when the balance is thrown off, we lend a helping hand to help them get back to their former glory.
Imagine heading out on a game drive and, suddenly, you see this dinosaur-looking creature peering at you. Trust us, it's an even more moving experience than you could imagine!
How adorable is this white rhino calf? They might be called "white", but as you can see here, they're actually more grey in colour. Their snouts also look different from the black rhino's, and they have a wide front lip, as they are grazers that feed only on grasses.
Did you know that rhinos can't see very well? But what they lack in sight, they more than make up for when it comes to their hearing. They can pick up on lower frequencies than human ears, and sounds can be twice as loud.
Rhinos are generally a bit more like introverts, mostly living as solitary animals except when mating or raising their little ones. However, interestingly, the white rhino is more extroverted, often seen roaming in a crash of up to 15 rhinos.
Look at that impressive horn! Unfortunately, this horn is also threatening the rhino species' survival. However, the reality is that the rhino horn is made of keratin, just like our nails. Therefore, it really has no medicinal value.
A group of rhinos is called a crash, which is also why we call our Rhino Africa team the "Rhino Crash"! Head on over here to see the faces behind the World's Best Safari Company!
