5 Day Rhino Safari
Care For Wild Rhino Sanctuary is located on a beautiful game reserve in the heartland of Mpumalanga, South Africa, where we’ve set up a treatment and care center where we can tend to injured or orphaned animals until they are well enough to be rehabilitated into the wild. Petronel Nieuwoudt, the founder of Care for Wild Rhino Sanctuary NPC, is one of the few people worldwide who has specialized in the care of orphaned and injured rhinos, and her passion is truly inspiring.
Our mission is to save black and white rhinos from extinction. We are committed to rescue abandoned, injured, and orphaned rhinos and to rehabilitate them wherever possible. We enlist the help of veterinarians, nutritionists, ecologists, and other specialists, to ensure the successful rehabilitation and release of these animals. Over the years, Care for Wild Rhino Sanctuary has grown to be the largest rhino sanctuary and orphanage in the world. This has been made possible through hard work, trust, dedication, and good partnerships.
Founded by Petronel Nieuwoudt in 2001, Care for Wild Rhino Sanctuary is the biggest orphan rhino orphanage and sanctuary in the world. After a more in-depth understanding of the plight of our Rhinos we then make our way to Nhongo Lodge for Four Nights visiting the Kruger National Park with daily game drives learning more about our Big 5 , Endangered species, Fauna and Flora.
