Orana Park and White Rhino

Up close and personal on the twilight tour....


  1. Many years ago I did an Orana Park 'safari' where we slept overnight in tents. In the morning we went behind the scenes and helped to groom the rhino. He was in a kind of pit below us and we used a broom to brush his hide.

  2. Gorgeous photo I love orana park I just read some sad news that the black Rhino is now official extinct

  3. That must have been amazing Ruth - and I am shocked Marja - hadn't realised that!
    Jim - there were so many up close shots to take - these, the giraffes, lions etc - fantastic tour.

  4. How sad about the Black Rhino!!! I've just moved to Christchurch, so looking forward to checking out Orana Park!

  5. I upset a Rhino,
    That you and I know,
    By saying it was verminous.
    How was I to know
    That that Rhino
    Was thin skinned
    As well as pachiderminous.
