Black Rhino Range Expansion Project (BRREP)

The Black Rhino Range Expansion Project (BRREP) is a partnership between Ezemvelo KwaZulu-Natal Wildlife (EKZNW) and World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF). The aim of the project is to trans-locate founder populations of black rhino from the saturated provincial and national parks to private and community owned reserves with adequate security for the protection of rhino therefore expanding their range and kick-starting population growth.

Dinokeng Game Reserve is proud to have been chosen as the 11th BRREP site and in October 2017 we reintroduced Black Rhino into our Reserve. These Rhinos are all doing well. We already had two new calves born , one in February, one in June this year. Regrettably one calf died due to predator.
Part of the Rhino management plan is to fit collars that emit signals and allow us to track movement of the animals. Two collars had to be replaced recently and we are most grateful to Jacques Flamand (BRREP) for sponsoring the new collars.
Our Rhino management plan also includes dedicated monitoring and salute our staff who are committed to protecting our rhinos on the ground.
