(eTN) – The Northern White Rhinos, donated by the Czech government in December of last year, have now started to roam freely on the Ol Pejeta Conservancy after being released from their smaller “bomas” into the wider area. The four rare rhinos are now joining the other hundred plus Eastern Black and Southern White co-existing on the sprawling estate, and latest information has it that two of the Northern White females have been separated from the other two to encourage breeding.

Richard Vigne, CEO of the Ol Pejeta Conservancy, has made it clear that they will be breeding hybrids for a while before sufficient numbers will then permit to cross them back towards nearly pure Northern White. The four, another four remained in the Czech Republic for being too old to breed, are thought to be the last hope to ever restore a Northern White population, as the last herd in the wild was wiped out by Ugandan rebels in Eastern Congo, where an incompetent and arrogant minister some years ago halted the translocation from the Garamba National Park to Ol Pejeta at the last moment, condemning these rarest of rhinos to almost certain extinction. Three of them are shown below and please note that their horns have been ‘taken off’ to protect the animals from any attempt to poach them.

In other news it was also confirmed that following some more births the number of cheetahs on the conservancy has also risen to 33, a remarkable development as cheetahs in the wild are also considered endangered due to threats to their habitat and hunting patterns.

Finally, Ol Pejeta has also announced the availability of ‘Pelican House’ on the estate, sleeping six visitors comfortably in three bedrooms. The ‘classic’ up country cottage can be booked through the Conservancy office at [e-mail beskyttet] and proceeds from rent income will be dedicated to a large portion to community development programmes. While it is mainly for ‘self catering’ staff is available to assist in the daily housekeeping chores.
