Khama Rhino Reserve & Orapa - Jwana Game Parks
All three nature reserves are Community-based wildlife conservation and eco-tourism development areas, under high protection by the local organizations as well as the State of Botswana. The reason behind this act is simply to enable a safe environment for the breeding of Endangered Black and White Rhinos. After breeding, the rhinos are relocated to deeper parts of Okavango Delta away from poachers reach. This is why rhino sightings may be challenging in Botswana’s other nature reserves unless we do specialized boat and walking safaris in and around certain locations of the Delta.
Another alternative would certainly take a day or two to visit any of these three nature reserves where rhinos roam wild and free.
All three parks are home to other herbivores including Eland, Kudu, Wildebeest, Hartebeest, Burchell Zebra, Impala, Springbok, and Steenbok.
We have spotted Leopards, Cheetahs as well as Black-Backed Jackals, all predators which have been introduced to Orapa and Jwana Game Parks within recent years.
