Saving Rhino

Protecting Species at Risk

Sabi Sand has committed to be a lighthouse for conservation in Africa. Part of this commitment is to create a sanctuary for species that are at risk. The reserve has implemented an intensive wildlife protection programme over the last six years which is constantly evolving. Our wildlife protection programme combines the best of personnel, technology and community efforts.

The positive results we have been able to achieve would not have been possible without the incredible support of fellow wildlife lovers who have generously contributed towards the resources needed.

If you would like to join this effort and make a difference, please contact us.

Sabi Sand Rhino Warriors

The Sabi Sand Rhino Warriors (SSRW) were established in 2017 by a like-minded team with a shared passion to conserve and protect our natural environment and animals.

Together they began raising awareness about massive ecological problems such as Rhino Poaching. These rugged rangers, hard core conservationists and die-hard animal lovers each have their own strengths. From climbing the highest mountain on a bicycle to running for miles or cooking up a storm, they perform their passions with the intention of raising money and awareness to support the Sabi Sand Wildtuin and its conservation programmes.

Inspired by this heroic cause that they decided to put their own bodies on the line and challenge themselves physically, as these brave men and women do every day.

All proceeds and donations raised through the SSRW initiative are directed to the Sabi Sand Nature Conservation Trust (NCT). This is a non-profit organization that supports the Sabi Sand Wildtuin (SSW) and its surrounding areas in protecting the natural and indigenous fauna and flora of our beautiful country.
