Our next stop was the famous Hluhluwe-Imfolozi Game Park. The park is the birthplace of rhino-reservation, breeding the species back from extinction (less than 20 rhinos world wide in 1900 to more than 10,000 today).

As the home of Operation Rhino in the 1950s and 60s, the Park became world renowned for its white rhino conservation. The Rhino Capture Unit of the park can take credit for helping save the endangered White Rhino from the brink of extinction.

Today the reserve has over 1600 white rhino in the reserve and has relocated hundreds of these magnificent animals to game reserves around the world. As you can see from the photo we took a tour of the captive center, they take animals from the wild and sell them to other parks. The cost of a while rino is about $260,000 less shipping and handling!
