White Rhino in Etosha National Park

While on a morning game drive, knowing I never spot any animals, I was dependent on the guide. Since arriving in Namibia, all I had heard about was the rare White Rhino so of course I wanted to see one. We saw elephant, zebra, wildebeest, springbok, birds….that morning. We were heading back to the lodge when I was desperately looking in the brush by the road and there was a WHITE RHINO. I was so proud to have spotted this magnificent animal that is being poached in Namibia, and other countries. I took so many photos but loved this one of him eating. Spotting the white rhino was a pinch-me moment.
