Today we went on an adventure to trek into the wilds to see White Rhinos, at Ziwa Rhino Sanctuary. Actually, today the trekking was quite easy since the rhinos had decided to rest in the shade pretty close to the safari trail. And we really did see Obama- he is the first rhino born in captivity at the center and so named because his mother is from the USA (a gift from Disney in Florida) and his father is from Kenya. The picture below is Obama.
The rhinos are gray, as you can see, but they are called “white” because their mouths are “wide” and a long time ago the translation was messed up and they became called the “white rhino”. In the picture above, the guy in the blue shirt is our wonderful driver, Sam.
Check out the rhino video below.
