Here’s Where to See Rhinos in Zambia

The rhinoceros is Africa’s armoured giant, and is a bit like a tank on legs. They’ve been on our planet for millions of years and, unfortunately, are now a critically endangered species due to loss of habitat and poachers hunting them for their horns. Sadly, there are no more white rhinos in the north, but thankfully there’re still opportunities to view these majestic creatures in the south. Here’s where you can see rhinos in Zambia.

Mosi-Oa-Tunya National Park

Stretching downstream from Victoria Falls along the banks of the River Zambezi is the opportunity to see one of the country’s only white rhinos. Mosi-Oa-Tunya National Park offers scenic game viewing, including elephants, giraffes, zebras and buffalos. Along the banks of the Zambezi lie gap-toothed crocodiles and lazy hippos, with a wide variety of bird species flittering through the riverside thickets.

Take a walking safari, guided by highly knowledgeable and informative guides, giving you the chance to see some of Africa’s most spectacular wildlife, including the rare white rhino.

The trip starts with a drive into the national park, where you’ll be transferred to a safari vehicle. Here, you’ll meet your guides and trackers, who will have been out earlier to look for the rhinos. You’ll get a briefing on what to expect, any safety concerns, and recommendations for how to make your encounter with the white rhinos a memorable one. Once the briefing is complete, you’ll be driven to the location where the trackers have located rhinos.

From a distance you’ll be able to interact and take pictures with the rhino, along with gaining insights on other wildlife during the walk. Finish the trip with a cool drink, watching the sunset over the beautiful view of the Zambezi River.

Lusaka National Park

Lusaka National Park is located roughly 30 kilometres from Zambia’s capital city. It’s one of Zambia’s newest and most accessible parks. There are more than 100 species of mammals in the park, including white rhinos. Other animals include zebras, giraffes, elands, hartebeests, waterbucks, blue wildebeests, warthogs and many more. The park offers the opportunity to do activities such as camping, walking safaris and bicycle trails.

An impressive rhino named Thabo can be found in an enclosure with a raised platform for viewing. This is only available on the weekends and holidays, as at other times he’ll be roaming out of sight in a bigger park enclosure. This can feel unfortunate to some, as it can feel more like a zoo than a national park, but it does offer a guaranteed viewing.

North Luangwa National Park

There are opportunities to view black rhinos at North Luangwa National Park. However there are no permanent tourism camps or infrastructure in place to aid in your quest to find and see beautiful black rhinos.
