Khama Rhino Sanctuary
Travel to Khama Rhino Sanctuary – White Rhino Conservation in Action
The Khama Rhino Sanctuary is a community-based wildlife project established in 1992 to assist in saving the vanishing rhino. Other objectives of the sanctuary include restoring an area formerly teeming with wildlife to its previous natural state, and provide economic benefits to the local Batswana community through tourism and the sustainable use of natural resources.
As well as numerous White Rhino, the Sanctuary is also home to other wildlife which have settled naturally or been translocated in. These include zebra, blue wildebeest, giraffe, eland, springbok, impala, gemsbok, kudu, steenbok, duiker, red hartebeest, leopard, ostrich, African wild cat, caracal, small spotted genet, black-backed jackal, bat-eared fox, and brown hyena.
Over 230 bird species have also been identified here including Abdim’s stork and bearded woodpecker. Camping and rustic chalets are available at the Sanctuary.
A variety of activities are available at Khama including guided safari game drives, night drives, nature walks and rhino trails.
Located around 180 km south from Orapa and 25 km north from Serowe, the sanctuary’s roads are well maintained to make them suitable for self-drive trips or private journeys.
