Shamwari Game Reserve champions Rhino Awareness

Rhino conservation at Shamwari Game ReserveShamwari Game Reserve in the Eastern Cape has opened The Ian Player Rhino Awareness Centre, launched as part of its Forever Wild campaign.

The Shamwari Game Reserve joined forces with the Wilderness Foundation’s Forever Wild campaign earlier this year to help raise awareness and funds for the endangered rhino. As part of the initiative, our guests staying at the Shamwari game lodges donate R100 per person and in return they receive a special lower rate per person per night. Cedarberg is actively promoting this initiative. In turn the Shamwari Game Reserve will donate R500 to the Wilderness Foundation for every room night sold.
The Awareness centre, which is open only for Shamwari guests, has been created to educate is guests about the growing epidemic of rhino poaching in South Africa. It has also complements the Born Free Foundation and Rehabilitation Centre based at the Shamwari Game Reserve.

At the launch in early June , a cheque for R182,800 was presented by the Shamwari Game Reserve to the Wilderness Foundation. The money will be used by the Wilderness Foundation to raise public awareness on the rhino poaching crisis. Dr Ian Player, founder of the Wilderness Foundation and guest of honour, presented a talk expressing his life passion for the conservation of rhinos.
