Living their best lives

By Lente Roode | Project Leader

Lula and Khulula in their natural environment

We are happy to report that all the rhinos are still doing well. Esmé spends her days with baby rhino Thaba, being the best big sister to him. Lula and Khulula are living out their days peacefully, munching on what’s left of the summer greenery, rolling around in the mud puddles, and sleeping under the trees.

With winter now upon us in South Africa, all the rhinos are being fed lucerne to supplement what they are not finding out in the bush. They wait eagerly for the truck to arrive with their snacks and feed off the lucerne enthusiastically. Your donations are helping to ensure that they get a steady supply, and we are immensely grateful for your support.

Esmé, Thaba, Lula and Khulula are all white rhinos. The difference between them and their black rhino counterparts is that black rhinos have hooked lips, which allow them to pluck leaves off the tree branches. White rhinos have wide lips, allowing them to pull at the grasses and other low-lying greenery.
