WE GIVE A SH*T ABOUT RHINO'S.
Oh, and CONSERVATION too.
2-3-day guided experience through the Pilanesberg National Park
Game drives in Big 5 territory
Rhino Identification and DNA Collection Project
Hot Air Balloon Safari
Sunrise over the African bushveld, helicopters, game vehicles, scientists, and you, all congregate in the early morning.
After a briefing session, you will be deployed to your game vehicle, where you will then follow the tracking signal and helicopter to the rhino that will need to be chipped.
At this point the animal will be darted from the air. The drug, M-99 takes around 12 minutes to take full effect and sedate the animal completely. Once the animal is down the teams will follow the vets into the site.
The animal will stay down for around 20-30 minutes within which the work needs to be completed.
Each person in the group will have been given a task to complete on the animal, as time is of the essence; you will need to assist with one of the following: resting heart rate, body temperature, blood samples, measurements of shoulder height, horn length, spine length, feet size, molar imprint etc.
Once the samples have been taken and the rhino has been chipped for anti-poaching, the antidote will be administered after which the animal will get up and move off.
The truth is, we should all give a sh*t.
About the environment. About each other. About experiences that have integrity.
It's a bold stance to take in any industry - to care about the impact of every air mile, to look at data intelligently and honestly, and to use our profits for purpose.
WE DONATE R200 ON BEHALF OF EVERY EXPLORER TO
DO MORE. We support local initiatives in the regions we work in. Our end game is to make sure that we are developing responsible tourism practises. It takes a (global) village to make real change, but just one person to help another. So drop the judgments and HUG IT OUT.
WE ALSO GIVE A SH*T ABOUT THE SARDINE RUN.
