WHAT TO DO WITH WANDERING RHINOS
You might think Botswana’s rhinos – which have travelled so far by road and air to get to the Okavango Delta – would be happy live here in peace. But in a few cases you’d be wrong.
With the rhino population in northern Botswana increasing steadily, it is to be expected that some animals will disperse, especially youngsters seeking out their own home ranges away from those of their parents.
When there are good rains, and abundant sources of water and green grass are found throughout the Delta, white rhinos start to wander. They can cover considerable distances. Map estimates that one individual travelled more than 400km in just three weeks.
