Most memorable sighting
I had an interesting encounter with three rhinos. We had headed out on an afternoon wildlife drive towards the free falls area. Halfway there, in the Olkoski forest, my spotter spotted three rhinos crossing the road, some 50 meters ahead of us, so we thought we would follow them. We turned left in the direction of where they had headed around a corner, and suddenly the mother rhino was coming straight towards my car. Within a fraction of a second, she was hitting the front of the car, lifting the car up and down. It was an intense experience, but a quick attack that left me and my guest in shock, but still thrilled by the efficiency of that rhino attack.
