About Rhino Museum

As a testament to its emphasis on eco-tourism and conservation, the Waterberg boasts Africa's only Rhino Museum, devoted entirely to the conservation of rhinoceros.

Did you know? About 80% of all Africa’s rhinos live in South Africa. There are only an estimated 4 000 black rhinos left on the continent. Poaching is their biggest threat.

The species, that has roamed Planet Earth for more than 30 million years has been brought to the brink of extinction in less than 30 years.

Perhaps one hundred thousand rhino roamed the African landscape in the sixties, but war, corruption, greed and the indifference of man, have led to its near demise. The Thino Museum highlights the evolutionary history, habitats and landscapes, the rhino wars, illegal trade and use of rhino horn and conservation efforts to preserve rhinos.

Considering that both black and white rhinos almost became extinct, that there are only four major populations of rhino surviving in Africa today (Kenya, Zimbabwe, Namibia and South Africa) and that South Africa has the highest population of both species, a visit to this museum is certainly worthwhile.

The objective of the Rhino Museum is to make as many people as possible aware of what has befallen the species, what we are trying to do about it, and why it is important to ensure that rhinoceros do not become extinct.
