'Hope for Horns' walk.



AndBeyond ranger Dan Fenton will be embarking on a 922 kilometre walk from a Private nature reserve on the Eastern Coast of Southern Africa, all the way to the Botswanan Border gate of Ramatlabama.
This is the same route that AndBeyond transported the first of the six Rhinos along to Botswana for the Rhinos Without Borders Project.
It will take Dan fourty-five days to complete this route which will lead him through the diverse country side of South Africa’s Kwa-Zulu Natal, Mpumalanga and the Gauteng Provinces. 

A walk in remembrance of all the rhinos that have lost their lives, but also a glimmer of hope for all the rhinos that will be saved from these high-risk areas. 
We want to honour the challenges faced by conservationists from South Africa and Botswana that have worked together tirelessly in order to make this Rhinos Without Borders project a reality.

Dan has become passionate about the future of South Africa’s rhino and he wanted to initiate a walk that represented the path that these six rhino have travelled in order to live full lives under the watchful eye of the Botswanan Government.

As you all know, creating awareness and educating is key.

Dan and his team will be walking great distances in the October heat of 2016. 
They will take time to stop at various schools and communities on route to talk to people about the important role that our Rhinos play in South Africa’s ecosystem.

Dan and his team will be keeping sponsors and supporters up to speed with his daily encounters along the way by reporting through our social media outlets.

We hope to raise enough money to be able to contribute one, two or three rhino to the RWB project.

We are currently in the beginning stages of looking for sponsors to support the 'Hope for Horns' walk. If you want to be a part of Rhinos Without Borders movement...
