Seeing both the White and Black Rhino varieties was well worth the short stay at Lake Nakuru National Park. Both of these Rhinos are endangered and a joy to see them thriving in a protected environment. Bravo KWS for your efforts!!

I learnt a few months later that all the rhinos that i saw at the Park are dead. That was so sad. I had captured a moment on video when one rhino charged at us!
