The Rhino Run
Over the last few years rhino poaching in South Africa has become an issue of great concern. Between the years 2012 to 2018, South Africa has lost 6913 rhinos. Currently a rhino is lost to poachers every 8 hours in South Africa. Anti-poaching units, rangers, veterinarians and conservationists in South Africa are at the forefront of a “war”. The Klaserie Private Nature Reserve, which forms part of the greater Kruger National Park conservation area, has also been subject to severe poaching over the years.
The Rhino Run will be an attempt to raise funds in aid of the Klaserie Private Nature Reserve for their anti-poaching efforts. We need to join the fight against the senseless killings of these majestic animals. Join us at the beautiful Zorgvliet Wine Estate in Stellenbosch and take part in a 5km or 10km run and help raise funds to protect the rhinos in South Africa. Whether you’re a serious athlete or prefer to walk – it does not matter.
We encourage all participants and supporters to stay after the run and enjoy a fantastic breakfast, picnic, wines and live music at the Zorgvliet Wine Estate which has some incredible views and landscapes. Be sure to book your breakfast or picnic directly with Zorgvliet Wine Estate at 021 885 1399. Kids play area is also available on site with supervision (at own risk).
When: Saturday 12 October 2019
