Original text on this topic:
Kruger NP. When white rhino are released into a foreign environment they tend to wander far and wide before settling. Some of the first white rhino that were released in the KNP, to the north of Pretoriuskop, moved eastward and eventually settled north of Crocodile Bridge, a distance of 75 km. With subsequent releases the animals settled in the areas that had already been colonised by white rhino. When introducing white rhino to a game farm it will be a good idea to collect dung from the animals in the boma and place it at waterpoints and other exposed areas on the farm. This could help the animals in settling down sooner.
