At our second camp in Namibia, we were told that we could see black rhinos. This really piqued our interest because rhinos are a critically endangered species and very difficult to spot in the wild. Seeing one is a very special experience.
To attempt it would make for a very long day – 3:30am wake up, on the road by 4am, 2 hour drive to where they live, and then get lucky enough to see one. Quite a tall order! But, Shelley and I decided to give it a shot.
The early morning drive was long and cold, but ultimately we were rewarded. Shelley spotted a rhino! We couldn’t get too close because of their shy nature – they typically run away from the safari vehicles. But Shelley was able to snap several pictures of our rhino at a distance.
