Travel with Purpose. Visit ERC’s Wildlife Reserve.

When you visit ERC you’ll have the opportunity for up-close wildlife + conservation experiences such as game counts, rhino monitoring, veterinarian health checks and trimming rhino horns to give life and hope for their survival.

South Africa is greatly affected by poaching and a vital part of our project is ensuring the preservation of rhino within South Africa and beyond. After losing some of our beloved rhinos to poaching, we invested in stringent security measures. To preserve our rhino numbers, the time had come for drastic measures to trim the horns of all rhino on our wildlife reserve.

Our partner Africa 360 Travel donates 100% of trip profits for guests that visit our project. This partnership and your visit helps sustain us in lean times to keep our rhinos (and other wildlife) safe. We look forward to welcoming you to ERC as part of your safari to beautiful South Africa.
