Skydive for Rhino: Ordinary People Doing Something Extraordinary for SA’s Rhinos

Unfortunately, Skydive Hluhluwe has been postponed for a short while due to the current COVID-19 crisis. We will share the new dates as soon as they become available. In the meantime, please stay home and stay safe.

SAVING RHINOS FROM 10,000 FT

In 2019, 96 brave (and slightly crazy) individuals set aside their fear of heights and tandem-skydived from 10,000 ft to show their love for KZN’s wildlife. Participants came from all walks of life, including Princess Nandi from the Royal Zulu family and Tamsin – our youngest jumper at just 13 years old. Thanks to their efforts, Skydive for Rhino was able to raise more than R300,000 for urgent anti-poaching initiatives like the Project Rhino K9-Unit and Zululand Aerial Patrol Wing (ZAP-Wing).

In 2020, Skydive for Rhinos, together with Durban Skydive Centre, will be partnering with the Hluhluwe Horings & Dorings Festival in celebrating the beauty of northern KZN’s “horns and thorns.” Join us from 06 to 12 May 2020 and experience the thrill of free-falling at speeds up to 200 km/h while helping to save one of KZN’s most magnificent animals.

100% of profits from Skydive for Rhinos go to Project Rhino’s anti-poaching and conservation initiatives.

How do I participate?

All jumpers are requested to raise a minimum donation of R5,000 – this includes your tandem skydive fees. Get creative and get your friends and family to sponsor you, sites like BackaBuddy allow you to crowdfund from all over the world. Whether it’s washing cars or baking cupcakes, every bit helps and all profits go directly to saving KZN’s rhino.

If would like to participate, please complete this application form and email admin@projectrhinokzn.org as soon as possible, to reserve your spot. We will also need a minimum of R3,000 deposited by Friday 24 April 2020 to cover our logistics costs.
