In the present situation (very few animals, maybe 10-15 spread over a region of 25.000 km? ) it is hard to advance a number for possible rhino density. In the past it seems that there was one adult rhino per 10-20 km? according to the quality of the habitat.

The characteristics of the environment where the rhinos live make direct observations very difficult. It is not strange to be within a few metres of a rhino without being able to see it. Idenfification of traces and footprints help to estimate numbers, the home range, and the principal habitats.
