Nairobi National Park is one of the best places in the world to observe the Eastern Browse (Black) Rhino (Diceros bicorni micheali) in the wild.
These intelligent and affectionate creatures have inhabited the Earth for 60 million years. Today, this species of rhinos are perilously close to extinction; the rate of their decline is truly astounding: now there are fewer than 2,500 left, in pockets in Zimbabwe, South Africa, Kenya, Namibia, and Tanzania.
The open savannah landscape enables easy spotting & observation of this awesome pachyderm in it's natural habitat. In addition, the Southern Grass (White) Rhino (Ceratotherium simum) is also easily found.
NNP is the convenient and virtually guaranteed chance to observe eastern black rhinos, of which only 700 remain after poaching decimated the population back in the 1970s.
The park is home to 60 of these highly endangered creatures, as well as to 11 southern white rhinos translocated here for their own protection amid the current rhino poaching epidemic.
Silole Cottage provide a range of accommodation for those wanting to get up close and personal with rhinos and in the Silole Sanctuary one can indulge in some rhino tracking and see the hows and whys of rhino life on foot.
Will's experience and Siloles affiliates can arrange private and group rhino tours & photo sessions
Be sure to book, to resrve a place early.
