Rhinos’ epic journey to freedom in Rwanda


Five zoo-born eastern black rhinos have been transported from Europe to Africa.

The three females and two male rhinos, aged between two and nine years old, came from Flamingo Land in Yorkshire, the Czech Republic’s Dvur Kralove safari park and Ree Park Safari in Denmark.

The 6,000km (3,700 miles) journey began at Dvur Kralove – where the animals were reunited and had been preparing for the trip since late 2018.

The zoo-born animals will join 18 other eastern black rhinos in Akagera National Park, Rwanda, after a settling-in period.
