We went on a guided hike at the Rietvlei Nature Reserve, and were very fortunate to get within a few metres of one of nature's most amazing creatures. The day after the hike, two of the rhinos at the same reserve were killed by poachers.
In an effort to save the rest of the rhinos at the reserve, their horns were cut off. Poaching is currently a big problem in South Africa, so I feel very blessed to have been able to capture this animal before its horns had been cut off.
