The Rhino Orphanage

.The Rhino Orphanage is a registered non-profit company based in the Limpopo Province and was founded by Arrie van Deventer in 2012. The orphanage is the first specialist, dedicated, non-commercial centre that cares for orphaned and injured baby rhinos with the only aim of releasing them back into the wild. It was created as the result of a lack of a specialized place for rearing baby rhinos who have been orphaned as a consequence of the current poaching crisis which feeds the illegal trade in horns.


  • To build and manage the World’s First Rhino Orphanage
  • To create an environment where orphaned rhinos are safe from poachers
  • To ensure that all rhinos within the orphanage receive the proper treatment, care and love they deserve
  • To ensure that all human contact is kept to an absolute minimum to ensure release back into the wild
  • To keep the public informed on the progress of the rhinos without commercializing or exposing these animals for any profit or gain
  • To continue the fight on behalf of these wonderful animals who cannot fight for themselves.
