Rhino Tracking

Photo credit: NRT Kenya

This is a magical experience, walking in the wilderness with trained and knowledgeable rangers as you help to ensure the safety of this rare and critically endangered species.  

The Sera Rhino Sanctuary is one of the first local community run and managed Rhino breeding facilities in East Africa.  The Sera rhinos are monitored on a daily basis and their location, body condition and behaviour is recorded into monthly reports that are shared with The Northern Rangelands Trust and the Kenya Wildlife Service.   

When you track the rhinos with the rangers you become a part of this vital conservation effort, whilst enjoying an educational and fun adventure.

Facilities
