Today was a thrilling day of horseback riding on the Maasai Mara with Ride Kenya. What a wonderful perspective for game viewing. I have loved my stay at Mara Expedition Camp.

  • I am Traveling on a rhino conservation trip organized through Safari Pros a team of like-minded safari tour operators
  • It costs $50,000 to relocate a rhino and $7,500 to make safe with security monitoring
  • Thanks to Wilderness Safaris for our Abu Camp stay
  • Map Ives runs the Rhino Conservation Botswana Project so we joined him for rhino dart  operation – resources dependent on vehicles on the ground, the local vet, helicopter horizons to  find them from the air, and staff to pull together the one hour start to finish dart and release
  • Maps’ goal is to establish a reservoir of rhino in 3-4 areas, making the world better one rhino at a time
