On December 20, 2009 four of the last eight northern white rhinos in the world were moved from captivity in the Dvur Kralove Zoo in the Czech Republic to the wild yet protected Ol Pejeta Conservancy in Laikipia, Kenya.
These creatures used to roam wild across Uganda, Chad, Sudan, Central African Republic and the Democratic Republic of Congo but their numbers were decimated to the brink of extinction. They are the most critically endangered rhino subspecies and the most endangered mammal in the world.
According to Gamewatchers Safaris, Sudan, Suni, Fatu, and Najin are adjusting to their new home and have been seen wallowing in the mud, eating, and running around like a rhino should. All four have been fitted with radio transmitters and guests of the conservancy will be able to visit them beginning in April.
Fortunately, this news comes at an excellent time to receive a 10% discount on safari during the summer and migration season. Bookings by April 15th will receive the discount to experience safari in the first private conservancy in the Mara ecosystem and the new home of the northern white rhino complete with authentic luxury camps, Maasai warrior guides, delicious meals, sundowners from scenic vistas, and world-class game viewing from 4x4 safari vehicles.
