A new baby rhino in Zimbabwe!

In June we were delighted to hear about the birth of a new baby white rhino calf at our Rhino & Elephant Programme in Zimbabwe. There are fewer than 400 white rhinos in Zimbabwe, so every new birth is a cause for great celebration!

To celebrate the new arrival, we are offering a 10% discount for volunteers booking this programme throughout July. You can travel any time in the next 12 months and take advantage of our flexible booking terms and current cancellation policy as well*!

Rhino Raffle – your chance to name the new arrival!

The new rhino doesn’t have a name at the moment, and the project are running a competition for their supporters to choose a name for the little lady. Simply make a donation to their Anti-Poaching Unit through their JustGiving page (fully tax deductible for UK tax-payers) and write your choice of name for the rhino in the comments section! The winning name will be drawn at random on 17th July 2020.

Take a look at some videos of the very cute new arrival!
