In 2009, Ol Pejeta Conservancy welcomed four of the world's last remaining seven northern white rhinos from the Dvur Kralove Zoo in the Czech Republic. Suni unfortunately died of natural causes in October 2014 and Sudan died of age related complications on March 19th 2018, leaving only two northern white rhino left in the world - both females. The two remaining rhino now live in the 700-acre Endangered Species Boma, along with small populations of Grevy's zebra and Jackson's hartebeest. Here, visitors have a once in a lifetime opportunity to meet these remarkable rhino up close and personal and to hear their amazing story from the keepers that look after them 24/7. All proceeds from the Endangered Species Boma are reinvested into the continuing efforts to pull the species back from the verge of extinction.
This activity is available twice daily from the Morani Information Centre at 08:30 and 16:00, and can be booked directly through your accommodation provider, or by booking online. It is also available for people visiting the Conservancy on day trips.
