SANParks Acting Head of Communications Reynold Thakhuli said the visit is facilitated by SANParks Honorary Rangers in partnership with the Rhinose Foundation.

The visit will contribute to efforts towards the reduction in demand for rhino horn by debunking myths relating to the perceived medicinal value of rhino horn, and by exposing leading personalities to the harsh realities of rhino poaching.

The Department of Environmental Affairs said on Thursday that the number of rhinos poached for their horns since January 2014 had increased to 769, with 227 people having been arrested countrywide.

The Kruger National Park continues to bear the brunt of rhino poaching in South Africa, having lost 489 rhino so far this year. A total of 103 rhino have been poached in Limpopo, 65 in KwaZulu-Natal, 47 in North West and 43 in Limpopo.
