The annual Rhino Ride is held on the magnificent Manyoni Private Game Reserve (MPGR), a 23 000 hectares proclaimed private nature reserve, home to over 70 mammal species including Africa’s BIG 5. All proceeds from the Rhino Ride go directly into the Zululand Conservation Trust who use the funds raised to assist the MPGR in critical Rhino conservation projects.

During the weekend not only will you be treated to breath-taking views, magnificent Zululand scenery & the Big 5, but you will also gain an awareness of the challenges the MPGR & ZCT face in the fight against rhino poaching. Your entry ticket includes your conservation levy, all meals from Friday through to Sunday, your camping spot and cycle entry.
