In the battle to conserve the rhino species, DNA sampling and identification ‘ear notching’ are key projects of wildlife professionals. DNA samples are widely used as evidence to convict wildlife criminals. The ear notches help the game wardens to correctly identify and monitor important behaviour and movements of the rhino.
We at Enza Safari are passionate about conservation and strive to expose our guests to different conservation activities. Spend a day with animal experts as they dart a rhino, extract DNA samples and ‘notch’ the ears of a rhino. It is a privilege to witness such activities in the company of experienced professionals and rhinos at such close range.
Make a meaningful financial and physical contribution to the conservation of African rhinos through this thrilling experience.
(Note: Conservation projects are region-specific & seasonally dependent on the professionals working in the field. Thus, certain experiences may not always be available.)
