Baby Rhino at Karkloof Spa

Karkloof Spa in KwaZulu-Natal (South Africa) boasts a luxury boutique lodge with 16 individually decorated villas, an expansive world-class Spa and 3500 hectares of bountiful terrain AND...........a four week old baby rhino!
Let's face it - this little guy tops the list of current attractions. You really can't get much cuter that a baby rhino. OK, baby hippos and elephants compete strongly, but this guy is very cute.
He's actually already 6 weeks old. He was four weeks old when I took this photo on a visit to Karkloof. Apologies- it's a cell phone picture. Note that his mother's horn has broken off while fending off the father of this little rhino. Apparently an unsuccessful defence against his advances.
Karkloof Spa remains one of our favourite properties. It's a real gem in a beautiful setting just outside Pietermaritzburg and it has a long list of accolades to prove it.

p.s. The food is absolutely exceptional!
