Rescuing Rhinos in Africa

Standing out among andBeyond’s many, many conservation efforts is its Rhinos without Borders project. While staying at andBeyond’s Phinda Homestead, Ngala Safari Lodge or any of its Phinda Private Game Reserve or Kruger National Park properties, guests can help monitor the health of both black and white rhinos, protecting them from poachers via land and helicopter expeditions. Participants can also help stop the population decline — in the past decade alone more than 7,000 African rhinos have been lost to poaching — by helping locate and dart rhinos alongside a team of veterinarians and conservationists. While the endangered giants are sedated, guests can help notch a rhino’s ear with a unique marking, take horn shavings and skin samples for DNA analysis, and microchip both the horn and the rhino’s body for security purposes.
