Rhino sanctuary Fence repair and replacement is done on a continual basis. Road works, drainage ditches, maintenance of existing roads are also carried out on a continual basis by the JCB, Fastrac and Cat grader.

The day is tightly structured and carefully choreographed and the feedback has been fantastic. [more]
