A postcard from Nepal: rhinoceros

On our safari drive in Chitwan National Park yesterday we were fortunate to see five rhinos. There were three adult males in different locations, of which this is one. We got within about ten metres of him (in a jeep). We also saw a female and calf. The one horned rhino is a Nepalese conservation success story, with numbers increasing. Armed guards patrol the park to deter poachers, although sadly a few do get through .
