Visit behind the scenes at the White Rhino Barn for our annual Open House! Meet our staff and volunteers at the crossroads of African Penguins and the Watusi Exhibits where you will gain entry to the white rhino barn for the suggested donation of a toonie.

Visitors can come and meet some of our white rhinos up close and chat with the Savanna keeping staff about how we care for them throughout the year and be inspired by the rhino’s story. There will be a silent auction and rhino themed merchandise for sale throughout the weekend plus you can create a rhino themed craft to remember your special day.

All proceeds raised will be donated to the Endangered Species Reserve Fund supporting Lewa Conservancy, The International Rhino Foundation, and Action for Cheetahs.

This event is meant to bring attention to the fact that there are only 5 species of rhinos left on the planet and they are being poached at a rate of about three to four per day. In 2017, over 1,000 rhinos were poached in Africa alone. At this current rate, without extreme intervention, all rhino species will become extinct within 15 years. We can all make a difference for rhinos because endangered means we still have time!

NOTE: Event subject to change without notice. Event is accessible. There is no guarantee which rhino(s) will be in the barn for the event each day.
