Walk with Us | Help Save the Rhino Species
The Kariega Foundation invites you to join our campaign to raise R210,000 for our Anti-Poaching Unit. Conservation is a team sport. We can't do it on our own.
It takes a village of dedicated, selfless and courageous people to save a species.
The calling to save the rhino can feel lonely and draining. But there is strength in numbers.
As our village grows in numbers so the weight of the burden lightens and hope for the future of the rhinoceros strengthens.
Join our village. Walk with us in our dedication to save the rhino species.
Little Bits Makes a LOT
We have learned that conservation is a team sport. We can’t do it on our own. When we work together, alchemy happens – there is magic. With many individual donations we can achieve our fundraising goals. Little bits make a LOT.
Until guests are able to return, the Kariega Foundation’s core objective is to ensure that we have the funds to keep our APU fully operational so that the rhino at Kariega remain protected.
The daily operating cost of the Kariega Anti-Poaching Unit is R5,000 (US$340, €280 or £250). Our short-term focus is to raise R210,000 to cover these costs for six weeks until the end of May 2021.
No donation is too small. Please email us on email@example.com if you would like to know more.

The Eastern Cape is a Rhino Stronghold
South Africa is the custodian to more than three-quarters of the world’s rhinos. Over the past decade, 8,349 rhinos have been killed in South Africa alone for their horns.
In 2021, shocking rhino population statistics revealed that the world’s largest population of rhinos — found in South Africa's Kruger National Park — has diminished by nearly 70% over the past decade, mainly due to relentless and barbaric poaching.
The species urgently needs rhino protection and conservation efforts to trump poaching so that rhino populations can grow and thrive unthreatened once more.
Kariega Game Reserve and a collection of wilderness areas in the Eastern Cape region, known as INDALO, have risen to this challenge.
Together we have become pioneers in rhino conservation through the power of collaboration and igniting community consciousness.
We have developed a shared model of advanced anti-poaching practises and are creating a much-needed and essential stronghold for rhino in Africa. Join our village. Walk with us in our dedication to save the rhino species.
