The Story behind our renostermaan
Interested in joining us for a rhinomoon? Get in touch with us!.
South Africans are the custodians of 90% of the worldwide rhino population. We therefor endeavour to inform the public of the successes achieved by those who positively contribute towards rhino conservation. Rhino Connect has successfully hosted a number of projects as well as #RhinoMoon weekends for almost 5 years. A Rhinomoon is held during the full moon period of the month - traditionally referred to as “poacher’s moon” . This entails working shoulder - to - shoulder with Anti - poaching Units. This boots - on - the - ground exercise allows individuals to become directly and proactively involved in fence patrols, rhino monitoring and a variety of other educational programs, while working side - by - side with wild rhino on private reserves. Security is of the highest priority and all participants must undergo a vetting process prior to participation.
A #Renostermaan or #Rhinomoon weekend is a great way to experience first - hand, what rhino conservation is all about. During this weekend - and depending on the project that you attend - we will provide you with loads of factual information and real - life experience about private rhino ownership, rhino behavior and wild - life management. This includes an introduction to spoor - tracking, anti - poaching and observation skills - and where possible, rifle handling and target shooting (not at our rhinos!) - presented in a safe and family friendly environment.
Our fees are based on recovering costs and expenses only and not for profit gain, as the aim of the #Rhinomoon project is solely focused on rhino conservation and protection! Included are meals and accommodation, ample game viewing, bushwalks and full - moon patrols. All ages are welcome!
