The walking safari experience starts early and is generally split into two parts-firstly in the main section of the Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park where there is the highest concentration of large game, such as elephant, buffalo, giraffe, zebra, wildebeest, impala, bush buck, water buck and many smaller animals such as warthog, monitor lizards, baboons and vervet monkeys. After a short break of refreshments guests will make a short transfer by vehicle to the area the White Rhino inhabit and track them to where they are feeding or resting.
Livingstone Rhino Walking Safaris picks up their guests from their lodge or hotel in their 4x4 observation vehicles, while taking the guided walking tour guests will be able to have photographs really close to rare white rhinos. The tour ends with a shady rest with home made snacks and refreshments and then you'll be dropped off back at your accommodation.
The rhino's horn consists of tightly compressed hair-like fibres and is attached to the skin, not the skull. Rhinos are fairly placid animals with poor sight but an acute sense of smell and hearing. They are fast-food grazers par excellence, capable of taking more than one mouthful per second when the grass is fresh and green. They tend to feed in the early morning and late afternoon and either rest in shade or wallow in shallow pools during the heat of the day. The mud wallows that they are known for is an effective tick-trapping technique - the parasites get caught in the mud, and when this dries and falls off the animals' skins, so do the insects.
Rhinos also have a close relationship with ox-pecker birds, which help remove the ticks and also sound the alarm when there is impending danger. Although they look cumbersome, rhinos can charge at up to 45km/h. White rhinos are, of course, not white at all but are so-called because of the misinterpretation of the Dutch word for "wide", which was used to describe the lip of the grazing variety of rhino.
