Meet Beate the rhino
Meet Beate, a 12-year-old rhino cow, who is part of a small social group that come to the lodge every day to feed. Beate means blessed in Latin, and we are indeed blessed having her here at our sanctuary, as she brings with her a bright future for the reproduction and expansion of the sanctuary.
Beate has a 3-year-old bull calf called Eric. Eric is her first calf, and even though Eric can take care of himself now, he is still strongly attached to his mother. But as Beate is now expecting a little new one, it is important that Eric starts to join the bigger group of rhinos, which Beate will motivate him to do.
DANIMEX-FOOD A/S and their partnership
It is no coincidence that DANIMEX-FOOD have chosen to become part of Rhino Sanctuary Namibia, as there is a very special bond between them and Africa.
“We, the owners of Danimex-Food A/S, have spent more than 30 years working in and with Africa. This great continent which holds it all: forests, mountains, steps, beaches, desert, and not to forget a fantastic wildlife that you never get tired of discovering. Unfortunately, several species are threatened by extinction, and the white rhino is one of these species.
When we heard about Tom’s initiative to create a sanctuary for these magnificent animals, we immediately loved the idea. And it is our pleasure to be a proud partner of the sanctuary and owners of Beate. The signification of Beate is originally the Latin meaning Blessed. It also translates into happy, satisfied, and cool.
We wish Beate a long and happy life at Rhino Sanctuary Namibia.“
