Over the past 7 trips, we never saw Black Rhino but this year we saw 5 including this one which was not at all nervous walking towards rthe car and slowly crossing the road in front.

Very lucky indeed!

In all my trips to various SANParks' parks, provincial parks and private reserves over the years, I have still never seen a Black Rhino. That is even having driven roads where they are "guaranteed"! I know it is "right place, right time", but I think my time should be coming soon - I've tried long enough now!

I think you all realise how lucky and privileged you have been to see and be able to photograph these wonderful animals. Terrible to think how endangered they are becoming.
