The rhino sanctuary is a fenced-off area within the park, developed for breeding rare black rhinos, and expanded to protect other mammal species from poaching. With a scout from Mvuu Camp or Mvuu Lodge in the park, you can go on a three-hour hike, searching for the rhinos in the 48-sq-km reserve.

In late 2016 10 black rhinos were living in the enclosure, along with populations of Lichtenstein’s hartebeest, Cape buffalo, Burchell’s zebra, eland and roan antelope.
