KRUGER NATIONAL PARK – Berg en Dal Camp – White Rhino

Berg en Dal Restcamp – Kruger Park is situated on the bank of the Matjulu Spruit with a view of softly undulating hills to the east.
On the northern and southern sides dry riverbeds and a dam border the camp. There are large trees along the streams and dry riverbeds. Special care has been taken to preserve the natural vegetation in the camp. Berg en Dal Restcamp – Kruger Park is also the only camp set in a rugged mountain environment.
The area hosts white rhino, kudu, impala, giraffe, elephant, reedbuck, klipspringer, grey rhebok and warthog.
Well, it seems that the white rhino – or more correctly, the square-lipped rhino because of its wide flat mouth, which is supremely well designed for its job as a lawn mower – was referred to as ‘wijd’ (wide) in Dutch. Somehow that became misunderstood or corrupted into ‘white’ by the dippy English. And while they were on a roll with colours, they simply dumped the name ‘black’ on the slightly smaller rhino so they didn’t have to think too hard.
