New Orphanage Arrival

May 5, 2017

**New arrival** / Not quite a rhino…

This 2 month old buffalo calf arrived at the orphanage from the resident herd. We have named him Hatari which means danger in Swahili. Buffalo may come across as peaceful and passive at times but they are, in fact, very dangerous and unpredictable. This is why buffalo, like rhinos, are part of Africa’s big 5.

Hatari settled in quickly and took to the bottle shortly after he arrived. He has started warming up to his carers and showing signs of affection by licking them.
