Grootberg Rhino tracking

Once classified as critically endangered, black rhino numbers have risen dramatically thanks to a conservation partnership between local communities and eco-tourism. Our dedicated guides and local trackers will take you on an unforgettable exploration on foot amidst the cliffs of the Klip River Valley and rising plateau of volcanic basalt ridges.

The Rhino Trekking Activity has in fact become so popular that the Rhinos are showing signs of stress. There is a real concern that if we don’t implement immediate restrictions to the number of people participating in this activity, the Rhinos will move out of the area of their own accord. This in turn severely increases the risk of poaching in other areas not under Journeys Namibia management. It is important that this activity be managed to ensure that it is both natural and non-obtrusive for the animals, where they are unaware of the human presence.
We have been forced to take measures to restrict the number of guests participating in this activity.
