The Mokolodi Rhino Fund will assist in enabling the Reserve to better manage its white rhino population and to ensure more regular monitoring of the Reserve's rhino. Ultimately, as the Fund becomes better established, Mokolodi plans to have a dedicated rhino monitoring and surveillance team. In order to do this, the Reserve needs to obtain operational equipment and staff, including the purchase of a vehicle and employment of a minimum of three rangers to monitor our rhino on a daily basis.
Please assist us raising funds for this worthy cause by visiting the following link and making a small donation and spreading the word: Mokolodi Rhino Fundraising Drive Mokolodi 2013 Calendar

Mokolodi Nature Reserve took on two male cheetah cubs over 15 years ago. Late last year, following a short illness the one male, Duma, died as a result of renal failure. On Saturday, Letotse, his brother also died following signs of renal failure. Cheetah in the wild generally live to approximately 8-10 years and both of the Mokolodi males had reached over 15 years - an impressive age for cheetah by any standard.
Duma and Letotse were originally part of the reason for starting up the Cheetah
Conservation Botswana (CCB) project and have jointly through Mokolodi and CCB
offered tens of thousands of people the opportunity of getting close to a live cheetah. In addition, they have also played a pivotal role in educating people about cheetah and predators in general. In a country where livestock farming is so prevalent, helping people understand the role of predators in the wild is of paramount importance so as to reduce the number of human-wildlife conflict situations and encounters.
Letotse died on 09 June 2012.
