Filming Up Close And Personal With A Rhino!

If a rhino walks straight up to you while you’re filming and wants some rubs… you better rub that rhino like your life depends on it! Lucky for me she left my URSA Mini 4K camera alone!

What an amazing experience this was! These incredible animals humble you every time you see them. Please think about the fact that if we can’t save this iconic specie from extinction, then what will we be able to save?

***Please note that I have been lucky enough to film this rhino for quite a few years and because of that have built up a level of TRUST. DO NOT try and do this with a truly ‘WILD’ rhino as it may end up with you being dead! FYI – I did not approach this animal, it was completely her decision to let me come into her personal space and touch her.***

N.B. – The location of this rhino will remain undisclosed for security purposes.
