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!

Exciting news from our Rhino & Elephant Conservation Programme in Zimbabwe, with the announcement that their oldest female black rhino had given birth to a new calf. 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 “Khanya”, 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:
