  • September 25, 2017 | Rhulani Safari Lodge

Rhulani’s “delegation” could easily be identified in the dry savannah by the specially created, bright yellow T-Shirts. These should remain a souvenir for a special day.

"All our guests enjoyed it very much," says Rhulani's manager Gerda Kubirske. Although all the participants met at Ambush Alley Pan early in the morning and started to walk around 8am, they could not escape from the heat. With sweat beads, but above all with happy faces, everybody managed to cross the finish line. Now it was time for a refreshing drink and to find a place at the shade. In the second part of this morning, the Counter Poaching Unit demonstrated their capability in combat.

Rhulani’s staff had prepared a small stand in the meantime with drinks and some snacks. "We are thinking to expand this event to a whole day program next year," says Gerda Kubirske. In any case, many visitors will be back in 2018.

Rhino poaching is a global tragedy causing devastation all over the world. 1054 rhinos were poached in 2016 which eqauates to 3 rhinos poached EVERY day.

The Field Rangers and Counter Poaching Unit of Madikwe Game Reserve are working day and night with limited financial resources and often under adverse conditions.
