There is now a thriving population of black rhino on Kwandwe in almost ideal habitat.
Kwandwe continues to be a source of rhino for other properties around South Africa.
Kwandwe maintains a large team of Game Rangers and Scouts, providing 24-hour surveillance.
Anti-poaching teams put their bodies and their lives on the line tracking and confronting poachers.
We are committed to the safety of our rangers and to making sure that they have what they need to continue to protect our precious wildlife.
While rhino are the focus of our attention, the threat to lions, for their bones, teeth and claws, and elephants, for their ivory, is a risk we continually consider.
The hidden costs of counter poaching and wildlife protection are the enormous effort and funding that is required to run effective intelligence networks.
Help us to ensure they have the kit they need
RESEARCH AND MONITORING
Our monitoring team is constantly traversing looking for each individual rhino on our property.
This is all done by vehicle and on foot, with some help of trail cameras. This dedicated duo of Bulelani Ngcani and Gibson Loteni can recognise individual rhino from a great distance.
Our in-house helicopter assists greatly with this from time to time. We continually search for technology that will assist our teams in the monitoring process.
