Original text on this topic:
Botswana, Chobe NP. In Chobe NP, the white rhino are very selective in the habitat types they occupy. Generally, they prefer areas with pans, specifically showing a tendency to stay around pans that are fairly big and which retain water for most of, or throughout the year. Additionally, these pans must have open grassyplains around them with some trees and shrubs to provide shade.
