Celebrating Gratitude: What Our Rhino Crash is Thankful for


November 22, 2023

At Rhino Africa, we love reflecting on what we’re grateful for. And there’s never been a better time to do this than at this time of the year! So, in the spirit of Thanksgiving, we asked our Rhino Crash what each of them is grateful for. Here’s what some of them had to say…

The Opportunity to Make Dreams Come True

“One of the things I find super rewarding about what I do is that I get to help bring people’s dreams to life. The opportunity to make an impact on someone’s life and help provide them with memories and experiences that they’ll treasure forever leaves me feeling very warm and fuzzy. It’s probably my favourite thing about my job!”

Blending My Career and Passion for Africa

Working in a Diverse Team That Respects All

Celebrating Our Rhino Crash, Clients and Partners

“Without our Rhino Crash, clients and partners, there’d be no Rhino Africa. It’s an honour and a privilege to have been writing the Rhino Africa story for nearly 20 years now, and I can’t imagine a better way to have spent that time. So, from the bottom of my heart, thank you!”
