    Poor Nigel. First chased by dinosaurs, now by rhinos!

    That Asian rhinoceros was really coming after him… what a magnificent animal! Last year I saw black rhinoceroses in Namibia’s Etosha National Park and numerous white rhinoceroses in various South Africa game parks. The best place to see white rhinoceroses (about 1,800 there in all) is in South Africa’s Hluhluwe/Imfolozi Game Park. I was never disappointed with the rinoceros sightings there and I went to the park on four different days. May this magnificent animal be with us for many centuries to come!

    /I thoroughly enjoyed tonight’s episode on rhinos. The charging was powerful. The rangers are very good at their work and earn their pay, that’s for sure!

    The Charging mother Rino was a “Real Eye Opeaner”, Just a small reminder for us to respect boundries

    After you have that kind of an encounter with wildlife comes the realization, “Wow…I’m really just a slow-moving, hairless ape!” ;)
