Having the opportunity to enjoy a black rhino (Diceros bicornis) in such close proximity was cerrtainly a unique experience. Generally a shy and nocturnal mammal, they prefer the cover of dense bush and darkness. This calf and it’s mother however, were amazingly relaxed as they browsed in open view, walking to within a short distance of my vehicle.

Highly endangered and generally elusive, they rely heavily on their very acute senses of smell and hearing to stay out of harms way. This young calf however, will face life with an added challenge – it was apparently born without ears.
