Safari @ Khaya

Encounters with rhino and the Painted African wild dogs are increasingly rare, as both species are pushed closer to extinction. Rhino populations are being decimated by poaching, whilst wild dog populaces are being wiped out through indiscriminate destruction of their natural habitats, as well as the spread of diseases such as rabies and canine distemper.

At Khaya Ndlovu however, there is every possibility of a memorable sighting of both these threatened species. Home to a number of white rhino as well as a breeding pair of black rhino, a game drive here offers an exciting opportunity to view these threatened animals. You may be lucky enough to catch a glimpse of our black rhino calf as well as our five orphaned white rhino, all victims of poaching. These de-horned babies were successfully released onto the Reserve last year. Despite their humanised upbringing, the orphans are completely wild, imitating the behaviour of the wild white rhino on the Reserve. Understandably, emotions run high when these babies are spotted on a game-drive.

Considering the abundance of plains game on the Rietspruit, it is no wonder that our predator populations are thriving.  Sightings of lions, leopard, cheetah, hyena as well as the endangered wild-dogs add to the excitement of the truly authentic game-drive that can be experienced at Khaya Ndlovu, without the frustrating hustle and bustle of the busier Reserves.
