A bit of history regarding our name:
- Shibula, a black Rhino was brought back from Lisbon Zoo in 1991 to Augrabies Falls National Park, and our love of black rhinos began. We have followed her progress for the past 15 years - from a tame zoo animal to a wild rhino.
- In September 1994 her first calf was born, a female named Dundagos, which means “we have achieved” in Nama. She is known as DUNDI for short.
- DUNDI, the fist calf ever born in captivity was born in the Augrabies Falls National Park.
- Shibula's return to the wild has truly been successful, and we look forward to many more calves,as her story continues.
Our observations show that black rhino are social, caring and intelligent creatures that do not fit the stereotyped solitary, aggressive animals they are reputed to be. Much as with elephants, family and social relationships are important in the life of black rhino.
