Rhinos are some of the most incredible animals in Africa and are a favorite to see while on safari. Though their horns make them look intimidating, they are actually quite timid, gentle creatures — but don’t piss them off! Here are 15 Instagrams of rhinos that are sure to make you smile.

Our self-drive Safari through Etosha National Park has been a true highlight of our travels thus far. As we were driving around our second day in our 4×4 from @asconamibia we noticed a couple of animals to the side of the road. Much to our surprise and excitement, they turned out to be two black rhinos heading our way. As we watched and waited for 20 minutes they continued closer and closer until they were no more then 15-feet from our ride. Here is one of my favorite photos from our encounter with these incredible creatures. #namibia #africa #etosha #safari #rhino ___________________________ ▫️www.boldtravel.com▫️ ___________________________

Or do they just want some sun?
This was my first time seeing a rhino in person. Our ranger told us this one was a female called Christine…she was rather shy. He told us the biggest challenge they faced were poachers from even as far as Somalia A portion of the park has been fenced up to form a rhino sanctuary. The rangers still have to be on the look out for poachers who risk their lives for the rhino horns. The horns can fetch up to $70,000 per kilogram in the black market. #raundi_mwenda #justgoshoot #earthofficial #discoverearth #naturewhisperers #ig_exquisite #artofvisuals #visualsoflife #superhubs #ig_masterpiece #moodygrams
