Rhinos born in Rwanda’s Akagera after largest ever rhino translocation

Posted on 6 July 2022 By David Henning

Akagera National Park in Rwanda has welcomed several white rhino calves since African Parks performed the largest ever rhino translocation in November last year when 30 rhinos were sourced from South Africa.

This massive translocation is proving to be incredibly successful, and the rhinos seem to have adapted well to their new environment. Akagera National Park is Central Africa’s largest protected wetland and the last remaining refuge for savannah-adapted species in Rwanda, such as the white rhinos.

The first rhinos were reintroduced to the areas from European zoos after they had been completely eliminated from the area. A young rhino calf was seen enjoying its new home, which will hopefully become a regular sight in Akagera. Take a look.
