South Africa - Annual White Rhino Sale takes place

A rhino roaming around the Kruger National Park could be the answer to the Addo Elephant Park, or the Golden Gate Highlands Park, acquiring another acre or two.

Wheels are being set in motion for the annual white rhino sale, advertised on Sunday, from which proceeds go into a fund to acquire land for SA National Parks (SanParks).

"Every year we sell a few rhino to increase money for land acquisition," said spokesperson William Mabasa.

Last year's rhino sale netted approximately R8-million for SanParks.

Mabasa said 100 rhino were permitted to be captured for the sale this year but that the number that would end up in the shop window would depend on how many were ordered following the advertising campaign.

It was essential for anyone wanting to buy a rhino to inform SanParks by the end of next month.

The sale would likely be held at Groenkloof, Pretoria, in May, Mabasa said. - Sapa
