The rhino is prized for its horn. Not a true horn, it is made of thickly matted hair that grows from the skull without skeletal support. The major demand for horn is in Asia, where it is used in traditional medicine and ornamental carvings. On Phinda Wildlife Research Project you can help monitor these magnificent creatures.

The African buffalo is a very robust species. It is up to 1.7 metres high, 3.4 meters long. While not particularly demanding with regard to habitat, they require water daily and therefore depend on perennial sources of water.

The cheetah has an average hunting success rate of around 50% - half of its chases result in capture.

Running at speeds between 112 and 120 km/h (70 and 75 mph) puts a great deal of strain on the cheetah's body. When sprinting, the cheetah's body temperature becomes so high that it would be deadly to continue; this is why the cheetah is often seen resting after it has caught its prey.

The cheetah hunts by vision rather than by scent. Prey is stalked to within 10-30 m, then chased.
