andBeyond offers a truly once-in-a-lifetime Rhino Notching experience, allowing you to get up-close-and-personal with these highly endangered giants whilst assisting in their conservation. Guests have the opportunity to witness the darting of a rhino and assist a veterinary team, which will notch the sedated rhino’s ear for research and security monitoring, before releasing it back into the wild. andBeyond is committed to ensuring the survival of Africa’s rhinos and, as such, we implement best practice research and management practices. Ear notches enable researchers to correctly identify different individuals with a unique ear notch number. Microchips are placed in the horn and body for further identification and security purposes. Measurements, horn shavings and skin samples are also taken for DNA analysis.
