Waterberg Rhino UK Is Our Charity Partner

Urban Rhino Gin: Unleashing Hope with Waterberg Rhino UK as Our Charity Partner

Waterberg Rhino UK is the reason the “new award-winning” Urban Rhino gin exists – it’s as simple as that.

Belinda Chaffer, the powerhouse behind this incredible cause, was the driving force and introduced us to the former owners of The White Rhino Gin Company Ltd. And just like that, Urban Rhino gin was born – a toast to rhino gin history in the making!

Now, let's talk about the real MVP, Waterberg Rhino UK. This amazing charity is making waves in the heart of Limpopo, South Africa, home to one of the planet's biggest rhino populations and The Rhino Orphanage, the world’s first of its kind.

Flashback to January 2020 when five Waterberg-connected trustees had an epiphany. The region needed a hero, and they answered the call by setting up Waterberg Rhino UK. Their mission? Protecting rhinos, wildlife, and the Waterberg environment.

But that’s not all. This isn't your typical charity tale. Waterberg Rhino UK isn't just talking about change; they're making it happen through Security & Protection, Education & Awareness, and Community & Conservation.

SECURITY & PROTECTION Think special cameras, high-tech ranger gear, and state-of-the-art software that tracks criminals all the way to Kruger National Park. Upgraded equipment for the real-life superheroes on patrol – from communication units to bivvy tents.

EDUCATION & AWARENESS Local kids meeting rhinos for the first time? Check! Community-led projects creating future rhino champions? Double-check! Oh, and sustainable projects like food gardens are making a real difference in one of Africa's poorest regions.

COMMUNITY & CONSERVATION Tourism is the name of the game in Waterberg, creating jobs, supporting families, and keeping evil poaching gangs at bay. By supporting wildlife, you're supporting a community and vice versa.

In the past year, Waterberg Rhino UK has been on fire:

🦏 Installed and updated 25 ANPR cameras for detecting criminal activity.

🦏 Supplied rangers with top-notch gear, from drones to bulletproof vests.

🦏 Installed a solar system and comms tower at @therhinoorphanage for energy independence.

🦏 Expanded the Food Gardens Scheme, feeding over 3000 children.

🦏 Supported schools like @waterbergacademy, funding bursaries and environmental workshops.

The White Rhino Gin Company Ltd is proud to support Waterberg Rhino UK, and in just a few months have donated over £2,000 in products and cash, with ambitious plans for lots more to come.
