The Waterberg just got a whole lot more attractive thanks to the Rhino Conservation Participation Experience, which will take place at the eco-friendly Tintswalo Lapalala in the Lapalala Wilderness Reserve in the Waterberg (Limpopo Province).

This unforgettable experience will happen between the 7th and 9th of May 2021,June 18-20; July 16-18; and August 20-22. Imagine having the chance to assist the conservation team in important rhino research and monitoring activities? It’s a bucket list experience for sure!

So what can you expect: the veterinary team will dart and immobilize white or black rhino, with participants assisting during the process of monitoring the animal/s after capture. DNA will be collected as part of the Rhino DNA Indexing System (RhODIS) – a forensic tool that stores a unique genetic fingerprint for every rhino that has been sampled using blood, tissue and horn.

Based on the minimum requirement of eight participants, the cost of the Conservation Experiences is R16 000 for two people, to be added to the accommodation costs of a minimum stay of 3 nights. (Numbers are limited, subject to availability).
