Black rhino moved to Tanzania

South African National Parks (SANParks) facilitated the translocation of five black rhino, Diceros Bicornis Michaeli, Tanzania's Grumeti in the Serengeti National Park.

This was the first batch of 32 that will eventually end up in Tanzania. The five animals were transported by air on a Lockhead Hercules C130 from Thaba Tholo, a private nature reserve in Limpopo, South Africa.

About 20 years ago, eight of these eastern Diceros Bicornis Michaeli species, which is not indigenous in South Africa, were imported to the country and kept at the Addo Elephant National Park, and then sold to Thaba Tholo.
