By the end of the year 2013 around 1000 Rhino’s will have been illegally hunted in South Africa. This year will mark the first year where we will have negative population growth, so the population in South Africa is actually going down. Just to give an idea, we are losing 1 rhino every 8.7 hours. This is in South Africa alone, what happens on the rest of the continent is not as well-known as in South Africa…
It’s that time of the year in Madikwe where qualified trails guides have to do their Jungle lane shooting test.
In order to be allowed to conduct a walk with guests in a big 5 game reserve in South Africa you must be a qualified lead trails guide and have your Advanced Rifle Handling. North West Parks then requires trails guides to additionally do there Jungle Lane every 12 months. To keep the standard of walking guides higher in the North West then the rest of the country.
A walk while on safari is an experience not to be missed – all your senses are awakened, allowing you to enjoy other aspects of the “wild side”. Our specialised walking safaris offer just such an opportunity.
