About this program

Within the beautiful landscape of the wildlife prolific greater Kruger area, an amalgamation of ten farms have dropped their fences and adopted wildlife as their primary focus. Within the conservancy a unique partnering with six ex-racehorses is assisting in the protection of Africa’s white and black rhino.

The reserve’s Mounted Anti Poaching Unit is a great success. Since it’s initiation in 2012, not one rhino has been lost to poaching. The ex-racehorses provide an undeniable presence to poachers, fearing the larger racehorses themselves, while the horses provide a holistic and quiet approach to anti poaching work and unique ability to traverse difficult terrain.

Prices include accommodation, meals, transfers from Johannesburg airport, 24/7 support and financial contributions to the project. Prices are subject to change but will be confirmed in writing at the time of booking.
