SafariBookings chose three outstanding wildlife conservation organizations to compete in our first ever Rhino Donation Campaign. The three conservation organizations – Endangered Wildlife Trust (EWT), International Rhino Foundation (IRF), and Save the Rhino International were on the “ballot”.

In actual fact – each one of these is a phenomenal organization committed to the preservation of this majestic species, the African Rhino, and the fight against poaching. So, who did you – the reader – choose? Let’s find out….

SafariBookings Rhino Donation Campaign – how it began

Three highly-respected rhino protection organizations made the final SafariBookings cut for the campaign. Each one provided us with a 1-minute video pitch and a 250-word written pitch, along with some pictures showcasing their projects. The pitch outlined their who–what-where-why-how… in terms of their experience and contribution to the rhino projects they’re working on. Most importantly, they illustrated why they deserved the reader’s vote. The readers were given the opportunity to review all the pitches (and supporting materials) on our social media channels and featured in our blog. Ultimately, the readers – yes, that’s you – reached a decision.


The Winner of the SafariBookings Rhino Donation Campaign is...

The readers have spoken and the vote is in. The winner of our Rhino Donation Campaign and a $10.000 donation from SafariBookings.com is Save the Rhino!
