Khama Rhino Sanctuary
The Khama Rhino Sanctuary (KRS) was set up in 1989 with the aim of facilitating the reintroduction of White Rhino in Botswana. Covering approximately 4, 300 hectares of Kalahari sandveld the Sanctuary provides prime habitat for white and black rhino as well as over 30 other animals and more than 230 species of birds.
Despite being one of the smaller reserves in Botswana the KRS is nevertheless a good wildlife destination in its own right. Apart from the main aim of reintroducing White Rhino into Botswana, the KRS also sought to reintroduce other wildlife which had disappeared from the area. To this end a number of species have been brought to the KRS such as Blue Wildebeest, Burchell’s Zebra, Eland, Gemsbok, Springbok and Giraffe and these animals are commonly seen.
