Brand new baby black rhino born at our Rhino project in Zimbabwe!

A victory for rhino conservation in Zimbabwe, as our project celebrates another baby rhino – the fourth born at the conservancy in five years!

The news of a new baby black rhino from our Rhino & Elephant Conservation Programme in Zimbabwe is so exciting! Following the announcement that their oldest female black rhino had given birth to a new calf, we can’t wait to see and hear more about it! Mum, Kamchacha is not allowing a close up of the calf as yet, but any sighting is a good sighting, and this video clip from early on August 13th shows the new calf moving around the conservancy.

The new rhino has been named β€œKhanya”, meaning ‘Light’ in Ndebele. The project is now home to two juvenile black rhino, the new calf, and a white rhino calf, born in December 2017. Truly a victory for rhino conservation in Zimbabwe, and we congratulate the project team for all their hard work.

Here’s a sneak peak of Khanya:
