“Thula Thula” in Zulu culture means “peace and tranquillity”, and that is exactly what we try to achieve for the rhino orphans at the Fundimvelo Thula Thula Rhino Orphanage, an orphanage facility in KwaZulu-Natal South Africa, managed by world renowned rhino rehabilitation specialist Karen Trendler, based at the Thula Thula Private Game Reserve.

The Fundimvelo Thula Thula Rhino Orphanage offers a safe haven for these little rhino orphans, providing not only a quiet and protected environment where they can recover from the trauma, but also specialised nursing, care, rearing and rehabilitation.

Thanks to a partnership with International Austrian animal welfare organization Four Paws and the Fundimvelo Community Trust, the Fundimvelo Thula Thula Rhino Orphanage was established in 2014 and now offers refuge to baby rhinos and elephants that have lost their mothers to poachers.

The Thula Thula Rhino Fund is raising funds to care for the orphaned rhinos at the Fundimvelo Thula Thula Rhino Orphanage. All donations and sponsorships are managed through the Thula Thula Rhino Fund for proper control, record keeping and reporting.
