Under the management of Tanzania National Parks (TANAPA), Tanzania’s lesser-known Mkomazi National Park is set to become the first wildlife park in Africa specialized for black rhino tourism.
TANAPA’s Conservation Commissioner, Dr. Allan Kijazi, revealed that Mkomazi will introduce rhino tourism within its wildlife ecosystem from July, 2020.
“The special program has been launched to conserve, protect and breed rhinos in Mkomazi aiming to make the Park special for tourists who are interested in seeing the black rhino,” explained Kijazi.
The black rhino is now counted as one of the endangered species which is on the verge of extinction.
“For the past 20 years, Mkomazi Wildlife Park has been running a rhino conservation project which had attracted breeding of rhinos,” added Kijazi.
