Animal Saviours are thrilled to announce that we are offering a unique opportunity to join a team of conservationists at Mankwe Ecology and Field Research Center in South Africa, to assist in horn trimming some of their rhino and learn more about African wildlife conservation on the front line. This seven night trip of a lifetime includes airport transfers from Johannesburg Airport to the reserve, all meals during your stay, and a plethora of bush experiences, including, game tracking and anti-poaching demonstrations, and talks from wildlife and conservation experts throughout the week. There will also be multiple game drives during the trip, giving you the chance to observe and learn about all the animals who call Mankwe Wildlife Reserve their home and there will be a day trip to the Pilanesberg National Park, where you will have the chance to see the Big 5. The pinnacle of your trip will be the opportunity to assist in the mammoth task of tracking, sedating, and safely trimming the horn of a white rhino. During the horn trimming process, you will observe these magnificent animals up close, touch their skin and listen to them breathe and get a deeper understanding of why it is so important to protect and preserve this amazing species.
The professional equipment and personnel required to perform the horn trimming safely, which include a helicopter, experienced pilot, dart guns, and specialist veterinarians, is essential for the procedure to be performed safely and quickly but is it an expensive process and this procedure gives the rhino a 92% better chance of survival. Your support will help fund this extremely costly, but necessary, procedure as well as the anti-poaching teams who protect the rhino day in and day out.
The size of the Animal Saviours group will be limited, so it will be important to register your interest as soon as possible. The cost for this seven night experience will be £980 per person, excluding flights to Johannesburg, dates will be from April 29th to May 6th 2023.
