Prince Harry to Save Black Rhinos in Namibia

PRINCE Harry is to spend part of his three-month African trip helping endangered black rhino.
The 30-year-old, who is due to leave Britain at the end of the month, will spend the summer in Namibia’s north-west Kunene region learning how to save the rhino and desert elephants.

He chose it over hundreds of conservation projects after reading of the work done by the Nature Conservancy and the Save The Rhino Trust. He is also keen to learn more about the Himba tribe, who live in Kaokoland, a vast stretch of land in the north-west of the country.

The Nature Conservancy, which aims to protect rhino and elephants as well as enhancing the capacity of community game scouts, works alongside the Save the Rhino Trust, a charity Harry has picked to work with.

A source close to the Prince said: ‘Harry has chosen much of the itinerary himself. He has been very hands-on and Namibia is one of the places he will be going over the three months.’
