Under the guidance of Dr.Mike Toft this White Rhino female was tranquillized, a transmitter was implanted into her horn by the Thanda Wildlife Management Team, a general health check was performed and many measurements and some DNA samples were taken.

A group of Thanda guest was participating in this IN THE PATH OF THE WILDLIFE experience which was organized together with Wildlands Conservation Trust. At the end of the successful procedure one of the guests was allowed to “wake up” the Rhino under the watchful eyes of Dr.Toft. What a day!
