SOME OF THE BIGGER EXPENSES:

The true benefits
of private wildlife conservation

  • A recent annual report by SANParks shows that South Africa’s Kruger National Park has lost an alarming 70% of its rhino population in the last decade.

  • In contrast, private reserves experience very few poachings. Only 37 of the 394 rhinos killed in South Africa in 2020 were on private reserves. Rockwood, for one, has not had a single poaching incident in the last five years.

  • In addition, our reserve has celebrated the birth of more than 160 baby rhinos to date, with 10 newborns joining our family as recently as February 2021, taking our rhino population to more than 300.

Where once the continent was teeming with these graceful giants, only 68 000 now remain. Like most other species, habitat loss, poaching and the effects of civil unrest threaten their survival.
