Rhinos at Kifaru Reserve

Kifaru Reserve is home to our ‘crash’, or group, of Eastern black rhino.

They’re the heavyweights of the Folly Farm family.

Why do they live alone?

Black rhino are usually solitary animals, which means they like to live alone. So our rhino house has three bedrooms connected to three separate paddocks. However, Dakima and Glyndwr will live alongside each other for the next few years as mothers and their offspring do in the wild. You can walk right around the reserve to get an amazing view of the rhinos charging backwards and forwards, and rolling in the mud. Which they like to do. A lot.

Rhino horn is not medicine

We’re pleased to be able to use our Kifaru Reserve enclosure to explain the dangers that face black rhino to the 500,000 people who visit us every year. We’re also raising money for Save the Rhino’s Dog Squad project, which funds the training of dogs to help the rangers who protect black rhino in the wild. You can read more about we do for conservation and the breeding programmes we belong to.

The rhino house is also home to our pancake tortoises. As their name suggests, they are much flatter than the tortoises you might be used to. Learn more about black rhino, including fun facts.
