Gondwana Game Reserve & Black Rhino anti-poaching experience

Gondwana Game Reserve – on the Garden Route of South Africa – is now offering the unique opportunity to participate in their critically important Black Rhino anti-poaching and conservation initiative. Given the endangered status of all rhino in Africa at the moment, and the dramatic and horrific rise of rhino poaching, it is imperative for game reserves such as Gondwana Game Reserve to keep an active tracking device in the horns of all their rhinos. This needs to be replaced very few years. Gondwana Game Reserve has decided to allow a small group of people to share in this thrilling experience to help raise funds for their ongoing Black Rhino Conservation Programme.

The programme includes participation in the conservation process with helicopter darting, capture of the rhino and assisting with the implant of the radio device into the rhino horn. Guests will spend 3 nights at their luxurious Kwena Lodge on Gondwana Game Reserve and also enjoy a private game vehicle and ranger during their stay as well as spa treatments available.

I reckon that this is a win-win for all concerned. Lucky guests get to see real-life African conservation in action and know that their money is directly helping black rhino conservation and Gondwana Game Reserve gets much needed funds for the anti-poaching initiatives. This programme is available from May until September 2012 and can be booked by Cedarberg African Travel as part of your South Africa safari.
