Black rhinos are notoriously short tempered compared to their more docile relative, the white rhino. We are blessed to have both black and white rhinos inside Balule Private Nature Reserve. Most visitors, who are used to only fleeting glimpses of black rhinos as they disappear through the thick bush, are astounded when coming across a black rhino at Pondoro when seeing how relaxed they are in the presence of our vehicles. They are definitely one of my favorite animals and are a lot more social and intelligent than people give them credit for.
