Rhulani participates in the annual Madikwe Rhino Walk

  • September 24, 2018 | Rhulani Safari Lodge

The well-known and popular "Rhino Walk" of Madikwe Game Reserve took place last Saturday. The goal was to raise awareness of the threat to rhinoceros, show visitors what rhino conservation is all about and raise money for the Conservation Fund.

When we arrived in the east of the reserve at the Alley Pan, we were the first. Rhulani's guests were easily recognizable in the orange T-shirts we made especially for this great day.

The event started slightly earlier than usual due to the high temperatures announed. The participants could do the traditional 5 km walk enjoying the sunrise.

Meanwhile, the meeting point was transformed into a marketplace, with information stands, and also catering was provided. At our Rhulani stand there was the possibility of getting a foot massage. The proceeds were handed over to the Conservation Fund.

The highlight was a demonstration of the Madikwe Antpoaching unit. The visitors watched a military practice and got a glimpse of the relentless fight against rhino poachers, which unfortunately also exists in Madikwe.

For Rhulani and our guests this was definitely a special morning, which will be remembered.

We were easily identified by our orange T-Shirts
