White rhinoceros, Ithala Game Reserve, Louwsburg, Kwazulu-natal province

The White Rhinoceros or Square-lipped rhinoceros (Ceratotherium simum) is one of the five species of rhinoceros that still exist and is one of the few megafaunal species left.

South Africa is the stronghold for white rhihoceros, conserving most of the individuals in the wild.

There are smaller reintroduced populations within the historical range of the species in Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe and Swaziland, and a small population survives in Mozambique.
