new documentary from Zimbabwe: "There is a rhino in my house" (45 min)

"There is a Rhino in my House" is a documentary exploring the heartwarming story of John and Judy Travers, a Zimbabwean couple, at the Imire Safari Ranch, who have devoted their lives to saving from extinction one of the rarest mammals on earth - the Black Rhino.

The project is also one of the first farms to offer homes to young orphan elephants and has instigated research to improve handling and teaching elephants in order for them to be ridden and to work on farms.
Today, you can meet Nzou, a 35-year-old orphaned female elephant that has, over the years, become the matriarch of a herd of buffalo. Makavusi, Toto and Mundevu are elephants that allow you to ride on them, swim with them and share their daily chores...a magical experience.
Imire Safari Ranch, located 105 km by road east of Harare in Zimbabwe, is easily accessible for day trips, weekenders and longer stays.
