The team at Khulula Care for Wild were in for a huge surprise when HRH Prince Harry joined them last Friday! Prince Harry’s travel itinerary around southern Africa has had a strong focus on learning about rhino conservation, so we might be allowed to say with pride that Khulula Care for Wild was an obvious choice. The centre has evolved into South Africa’s largest specialist care facility for orphaned rhino and is the first point of call for all rhino calves found in the Kruger National Park. The project currently cares for over 20 rhino, aged between 2 months and 2 1/2 years.
Prince Harry spent several hours talking to the team and the volunteers at Khulula, taking a walk around the premises – accompanied by baby rhino Warren! – and experiencing a feeding round.
We are sure that getting to know the charismatic little rhino as well as the team who are doing such dedicated work will fuel Harry’s interest in conservation. Royalty for Rhino!
