Rhino and Chimpanzee Tracking

Rhino Tracking – South Africa and Victoria Falls

Rhino Tracking Hundreds of South African Game Reserves are protecting the few rhinos still left in their natural habitat. What better way to explore these amazing and delightful animals than to go on a rhino tracking safari. For successful rhino tracking, you’ll need to know the basics of animal behavior as well as the tracks and signs they leave behind. Individual rhinos can be identified by the distinctive random pattern of cracks that show up in their spoor. This allows trackers to track individual rhinos and collect data on their behavior and feeding habits.
