The Khama Rhino Sanctuary Trust is a community-based wildlife project, established in 1992. It was created with the aim of helping save the vanishing rhino, restoring an area formerly teeming with wildlife to its previous natural state and to provide economic benefits to the local Botswana community. The site was chosen due to its excellent habitat for rhinoceros, central location and proximity to a Botswana Defence Force (BDF) base, which provides the Sanctuary with 24hr anti-poaching protection. Covering approximately 4,300 hectares of Kalahari sandveld, the Sanctuary is centred in the Serwe Pan - a large grass-covered depression with several natural water holes. Serwe Pan provides prime habitat for white rhinoceros and other grazing animals, whilst the denser vegetation in the southern area of the Sanctuary is favoured by browsing animals such as black rhino and giraffe. The Sanctuary offers the opportunity for self-drive safaris or if you prefer you can book guided game drives or bush walks. We highly recommend the rhino tracking walk, an excellent and informative bush walk looking out for the tracks and signs of the magnificent rhinos and hopefully even a sighting of a rhino or two. Coming across these wonderful animals on foot is an experience you will never forget.
