The Hluhluwe Imfolozi park is the oldest game reserve in Africa and is also the birthplace of rhino conservation and is the reason the white rhino can still be found in high numbers today!
Sightings in the park and in Zululand are not uncommon but typically photos are very similar ie. They are either eating or sleeping..
On this occasion the mother took her young calf, ran out on the road in front of us zig zagged towards the car and disappeared in the bushes!
I have been on many safaris and seen and photographed many rhinos but I will never have another image like this in my lifetime
