THE IMPACT

By joining this trip you are directly helping to fund the costs to save and prevent a rhino from being killed for it’s horn. You will literally be hands-on with our team during the process doing medical checks, ear notching and tagging the rhino. Your payment for this expedition covers the following: 

1) Veterinarian fees.

2) Helicopter and pilot fees to track the rhinos at risk of being poached. 

3) Costs associated with ear notching and tagging the rhinos for identification and tracking purposes. 

4) Ground support teams. 

5) Lodging costs during the expedition. 

Joining a Rhino Project Expedition is a great way to meet new people who are inspired to travel with a positive hands-on change approach through supporting local communities, environmental and wildlife conservation efforts.
