ONE YEAR ON: another baby rhino born at Aquila Private Game Reserve and Spa

One year after the surprise birth of two rhinos, another baby rhino has been born at Aquila Private Game Reserve and Spa.


Aquila Private Game Reserve and Spa – situated just under two hours drive from Cape Town – is excited to announce the birth of a baby rhino, exactly one year after the surprise birth of two rhinos in 2017.

On 27 November 2018, the 24-hour rhino surveillance team of the Anti-Poaching Unit witnessed the birth of the little boy. They discovered the feisty male play fighting and charging his mother within hours of his birth.

This event is a great celebration in the fight against rhino extinction.

Aquila Private Game Reserve and Spa is proud to have been able to bring the first rhino to the Western Cape in 250 years and in February 2005, announced the first rhino birth in the Western Cape in 250 years.
