The Story Of Fundimvelo Thula Thula Rhino Orphanage
“Thula Thula” in Zulu culture means “peace and tranquillity”, and
that is exactly what we try to achieve for the Rhino orphans at the
Fundimvelo Thula Thula Rhino Orphanage, an orphanage facility in
KwaZulu-Natal South Africa, managed by world renowned Rhino
rehabilitation specialist Karen Trendler
, based at the Thula Thula Private Game Reserve.
The Fundimvelo Thula Thula Rhino Orphanage offers a safe haven for
these little Rhino orphans, providing not only a quiet and protected
environment where they can recover from the trauma, but also specialised
nursing, care, rearing and rehabilitation. The older Rhinos are guarded 24/7
The older rhinos on the private reserve are escorted by a pair of
armed guards 24-hours-a-day, but the team at the orphanage are hoping
they might be able to release the orphans out by themselves one day.
The Thula Thula Rhino Fund is raising funds to care for the orphaned
rhinos at the Fundimvelo Thula Thula Rhino Orphanage.
