Lula and Khulula surrounded by lush greenery
Summer is finally here, which means it is rainy season and the bush is lush and green. This suits our rhinos as they are able to hide themselves well in the dense areas while having plenty of grass to snack on too. In the summer months, Lula and Khulula’s lucerne feeds are reduced because the bush now provides the food they need.
An interesting fact to note is that for the first week of ingesting their summer green diet, their dung takes on a green appearance as their bodies adjust.
In Esmé's case, she retires to her boma at night and is therefore still given lucerne to eat. Esmé is proving to be a great big sister to orphaned rhino bull Thaba and along with their sheep companions, Mielie and Vlooi, they go on many adventures together in the bush during the day.
Once again, we thank each and every person who donates towards the care of our rhinos. Thanks to you, they are not only well fed, but their security is also taken care of, which allows them the ability to spend what we hope will be many more peaceful days out in the wild.
