What is Rhino Ark?

Rhino Ark is a charitable trust registered as a Charity in Kenya, UK (Charity No. 1047083) and USA (with IRC 501 (c) 3 Status). Founded in 1988 the trust responded to the grave crisis facing Kenya’s Black Rhino population in the Aberdare ecosystem. The Rhino were under severe threat from rampant poaching for their highly valued horn. Rhino Ark’s initial aim was to build a fence along sections of the Aberdare National Park on its Eastern Salient where rhino were being mercilessly poached. The Salient borders directly onto farming land lekarna-slovenija.com. Wildlife was able to maraud at night into the farms bordering the park, destroying crops, creating fear and loss of both revenue and on occasions, lives. This situation fuelled an already volatile community which saw no value in protecting either the wildlife or the forest habitat. Poachers had easy access.

Rhino Ark’s formation was specifically to assist the Kenya Wildlife Service (KWS) to finance a protective fence around the Salient area which has the highest concentration of wildlife in the Aberdares. The initial project idea subsequently evolved into a much more ambitious task of encircling the entire Aberdare Conservation Area with a game proof fence. The fence, strong enough to resist elephant pressure, is powered by electricity to keep wildlife within and curb illegal log extraction, snaring, poaching of wildlife (especially rhino and the rare and elusive bongo) from without. The fence construction work started in 1989 and completed on 28 August 2009. On 12 March 2010 the fence was formally commissioned by the former President of the Republic of Kenya, Hon. Mwai Kibaki.

Construction of the fence has brought harmony between wildlife and farmers around the Aberdare Conservation Area. The farmers now enjoy peaceful sleep at night without fear of land, crop and house destruction. Over the years, Rhino Ark’s work has evolved towards seeking sustainable, long term solutions to the conservation challenges facing mountain forest ecosystems, and other areas of important biodiversity under threat.

In December 2010, Rhino Ark announced its formal commitment to supporting conservation of other mountain forest ecosystems. The initial areas of focus are Mount Kenya and Mau Mount Eburu.

I have a tour operator company. How can I apply to become an accredited Rhino Charge camp operator?

The tendering process for the Rhino Charge is closed. To be added to the list for consideration as a camp operator in future events interested companies must express their interest to the Rhino Charge Committee via email: info@localhost

More information will then be sent to you via e-mail. Please note that the tender will be sent out newly each year, therefore camp operators can apply to become accredited camp operators each year.

Where can I camp?

Camping is only allowed in the areas designated to the accredited camp operator whom you have booked your camping spot through. You may not camp outside these designated areas. Should you be caught camping in any other place this can result in immediate removal from the venue. These measures have been put into place for your safety and to reduce the environmental pressure put on to the Rhino Charge venue and the host community.

Can I bring my own camping gear/is there a self-camping option?

Yes, private camping gear is allowed and self-camping options are available where spectators can bring their own gear and equipment. Please note that a self-camping option must also be purchased through the Rhino Charge ticketing system. You will not be allowed to camp at the Rhino Charge if you have not booked your camping spot through an accredited camp operator.
