Hama Reno Nature Reserve
Botswana, National parks

Hama Rhino Reserve is 25 km from Serou Village, where Botswana's first president, Seretse Hama, was born. This park was organized by residents of surrounding cities under the leadership of Lieutenant General Ian Hama, in order to preserve and increase the rare black and white rhinos that traditionally inhabit this area. In this park, which occupies part of the Kalahari desert, you can find not only rhinos, but also antelopes, hyenas, jackals, foxes, lynxes, ostriches and leopards, as well as a variety of birds, especially birds of prey. The Rhino Shelter is guarded by the Botswana army 24 hours a day. Now 18 white rhinos walk around the park, their caretakers are closely watched by the park rangers and they will be happy to tell you interesting stories from the life of their pets. Black rhinoceroses began to be resettled here only recently and especially for them the territory of the reserve was expanded by another 5000 hectares.
