Rhino tracking in the Serengeti

Enjoy guaranteed, respectful rhino sightings and support vital conservation work in the Serengeti…

By Andrea Pompele
Lemala Head Guide and Camp Manager

Encounter endangered black rhinos on this tour, led by rangers in Serengeti National Park. The rangers are part of a special unit set up by the park to look after and monitor these precious animals, day and night, in a protected area. The trip starts from Lemala Ndutu Camp or Nanyukie Camp with a game drive to the Rhino Conservation Project’s visitor centre, where you’ll get to talk to rangers, learn about the history of the project and find out how it works.

Meanwhile, rangers out in the field will track down the rhinos and radio in their location. Once we get the green light, we can hop in the 4×4 with a ranger and head out to see the animals. We always park at a safe, respectful distance and keep our voices down while we take photos and observe the animals’ behaviour. Rangers know the individual rhinos by sight and will be able to tell you all about their family history, as well as the species’s behaviour and biology.

This trip gives you the unique, guaranteed opportunity to respectfully see rhinos in the wild. For safety reasons, Serengeti National Park doesn’t release details of exactly how many rhinos are in the area but the population is on the rise thanks to this project. I love rhinos and have a real passion for conservation, so I think taking this trip is a great way to support vital conservation efforts on the ground.
