The absolute highlight of the trip was seeing two rhinos.

Yes, two real live rhinos.  Our driver walkie talkied some of the other employees of the ranch to see if we could find the rhinos.  After driving around for about 1/2 hour, we found them.

This was an awe inspiring experience.

We did get a little nervous when the one got up and faced our vehicle.  But all was well.  No charging took place.

No sooner did this large beauty stand up, then he/she laid back down again.  That’s what happens when they realize we didn’t have food for them.

To give you a sense of how close we were, look at the picture above.  We couldn’t have been more than 10 meters or 30 feet away.  Extremely close.

Until next time rhinos. I only hope there is a next time.
