A RHINO STORY BY FAYE

Have you felt the heat and texture of a rhino’s hide?

 

I have ….

Had you asked me this 5 years ago, I would never have imagined encountering one rhino, let alone participating in the plight of the remaining 20 000 odd rhinos.As most of you know, Simone, Renè and I cycled in The Cape Town Cycle Tour to tick it off our bucket list – however, we felt we needed a cause and since Simone is passionate about the bush, the obvious choice was cycling for rhinos. Me…. I was happy to be part of the team and festivities.    

Forward 5 years later, over a million rand raised and countless rhinos dehorned.

Let me share one of the most heartfelt 3 days of my life.

Thanks to the awesome work of The Cycle of Life I got to go to KZN firsthand and document 15 Rhino’s being dehorned. Funded by The Cycle of Life.
