“Wildlife in the world can only be protected by the love of compassionate hearts in the world!” ― Mehmet Murat Ildan 

Rhino Rangers

Specifically tailored to emphasise the dire necessity of protecting threatened species, “Rhino Rangers” immerses participants in the exhilarating realm of anti-poaching methods and challenges.

Learn first-hand from our valiant anti-poaching unit (APU) whilst spending one week with the intrepid men who have dedicated their lives to guarding the 7,600- hectare Zannier Reserve by Naankuse. Join our APU on their patrols, master firearm skills, navigation, tracking techniques and the science of poaching itself – to defeat you need to understand.

You will also have the incredible opportunity of meeting and interacting with the courageous anti-poaching K9s. These dogs are highly trained in aspects of attack work, tracking, scent discrimination and every angle of anti-poaching power.


It’s a week of proving fearless!
