Original text on this topic:
The white rhinoceros Ceratotherium simum simum (Burchell) became extinct in the Transvaal in 1896. In 1961 the first white rhinoceroses were re-introduced from the Umfolozi Game Reserve to the Kruger National Park (KNP). Over a 12-year period a total of 345 white rhinoceroses were relocated to the KNP. BY 1993 their numbers had increased to 1875.
