World Rhino Day on 22 September every year seeks your support for these tremendous creatures. Rhino conservation has massively helped this endangered species but poaching is still a massive threat. We track 2 types of Rhino on our safaris, the white rhino and the black rhino. Both of which are actually a grey colour. The white rhino, so named because of its “wide” mouth which, due to a slip of the tongue, became known as the “white” rhino, tends to keep its head low to the ground for grazing. The black rhino on the other hand is much smaller than its white counterpart and has a hook lip or prehensile mouth, tending to hold its head much higher. Speak to one of the S&B team to find the perfect safari for you to do some most excellent rhino spotting.
