Project Boabab – Schools
We have approached a few villages near the Blouberg mountain and met up with a few principals of the schools in the area. Our aim is to educate these children on the reality of poaching and why it is so important to end it and rather conserve our beautiful country. We want to help them with conservation weekends and by providing bicycles, clothing, school supplies and items necessary to help them with the education. Click on the image to find out more.

Our objective is to provide education to the youth to emphasize the importance of conserving ALL wildlife, fauna and flora.
Our rhino are not captive bred; they are not in a small camp. We do feed (due to drought) and we do have a vet on standby for any illnesses or requirements they might have. But besides this – they are wild and natural. They are happy and breeding naturally.
Insimbi was a majestic white Rhino with exceptional genes and a fiery protective personality . Unfortunately his life ended abruptly at the hand of poachers. He was poached on the 31st October 2014 – leaving us with much anger, hurt and sadness, but in honor of this magnificent beast, we have made a conscious decision to protect his legacy, and we ask YOU to help us. Insimbi means “iron” in Zulu.
