Did you know? The Dinokeng Game Reserve is part of the 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.

Since receiving our founder population of Black Rhino in late September 2017, the DGR’s Black Rhino population has thrived due to intensive monitoring and anti-poaching efforts.  Some calves born into the DGR will eventually be ear-marked for relocation to new population sites throughout Africa, vitally contributing to the greater success of Black Rhino conservation on the continent.

The DGR is very proud to be playing a part in the success of Rhino conservation in Southern Africa and will continue to put in the hard work to ensure the preservation of Rhino for future generations to come.
