The Winter 2009 issue of Wild magazine goes in search of black rhinos in Ezemvelo KZN Wildlife’s fabulous Hluhluwe-iMfolozi Park. Wild7-Winter-2009-PAGE

Author Dale Morris rekindled his childhood tree-climbing ability as he joined researchers in the field for an in-depth look at these rare and reclusive beasts. “Problem is black rhinos don’t take to disturbances all that well,” says Dale. The story and photos are riveting.

Also in this issue of Wild we head for Letaba Rest Camp in the Kruger National Park, don’t miss our advice on getting more out of your visit to on one of the Kruger’s best camps.

There are also stories on beetles (are we really living on the planet of the apes?), why some animal mothers kill their young, the editors choice of the best places to go for snow and, as per usual, kids pages packed with fascinating stuff for kids of all ages. You will also notice that the up-front pages have been completely redesigned and now offer you far more things to do and see when your out in the wild.

Lastly, look out for this month’s scrapbook of a conservationist which takes a look at the incredible life of conservationists Ted Reilly and Petros Ngomane.
