Everything you need to know about seeing black rhino on safari
As you see a black rhino gently wandering through grasslands and quietly browsing foliage you will wonder how on earth anyone can want to poach these seemingly placid creatures.
Found in savannahs, shrublands, grasslands and deserts, black rhinos they spend the majority of their time foraging for plants - eating up to 220 different species. During the hottest parts of the day they can be found lounging in the shade or wallowing in mud to keep cool. This is a fantastic time to see interactions between mothers and calves as the energetic little one will be vying for its mother’s attention while she is clearly trying to relax.
Occasionally, if a rhino feels threatened they will mock charge the predator; snorting and puffing as well as scuffing the dirt below their feet in order to assert their authority. More often than not they will retract but this really is a sight to behold for any animal enthusiast.
These impressive animals are a sight to behold, and not afforded to everyone who travels to Africa.
