Win a Rhino Game Drive in honour of World Rhino Day!

world rhino day 2013The 22nd September 2013 is World Rhino Day; an international team effort, a day of celebration for all five species of rhino and a method of debunking myths which stimulate the demand for rhino horn.

Swaziland is home to two species of Rhino: Black Rhinos which can be found only at Mkhaya Game Reserve and White Rhinos which can be found at both Hlane Royal National Park and Mkhaya Game Reserve. To commemorate World Rhino Day, Big Game Parks is hosting a competition and offering one lucky winner who correctly answers our 2 rhino-related questions below a FREE Rhino Drive at Hlane Royal National Park (see how to enter below).

If you’ve ever visited one of the three Big Game Parks in Swaziland (Hlane Royal National Park, Mlilwane Wildlife Sanctuary or Mkhaya Game Reserve) you must also be thanked for helping to protect Swaziland’s Rhinos and other wildlife, as the small conservation entry fee you pay on arrival goes towards our conservation efforts. Just by visiting Big Game Parks you can make a difference, so we welcome you wholeheartedly to visit us soon.

Sawubona! Welcome to Big Game Parks' Blog! From the flatlands in the East, through the mountainous and scenic West, to the heart of the lowveld in the South East, the Kingdom of Swaziland not only offers you nearly every example of African landscape but also unforgettable wildlife, culture, adventure and birding experiences. Big Game Parks (BGP) is a private non-profit Trust which manages three game reserves in Swaziland: Hlane Royal National Park, Mlilwane Wildlife Sanctuary and Mkhaya Game Reserve. All follow a common mission: to conserve the rich biodiversity of Swaziland's natural heritage. In 1960 the Reilly's family established the Kingdom's first game reserve on the Reilly family farm, Mlilwane. Hlane Royal National Park and Mkhaya Game Reserve soon followed and today the company's contribution to the restoration and protection of the Kingdom’s biodiversity is of great significance (BGP actually saved 22 species from extinction in Swaziland!) and can truly be appreciated by the discerning traveller. Swaziland is well-situated between Kruger National Park and Kwa-Zulu Natal as well as Gauteng, Mpumalanga and Maputo. Big Game Parks’ well-positioned and diverse game reserves are an essential destination in any itinerary.
