That’s because their 11 (yup, 11!) lively four-year-olds have finally flown the nest, and decided to form their own pride – now dubbed The Royal Boys Pride – in the southern area.

From Hiroshima to Laikipia With Love
"I just wanted to say that I am in love with Ol Pejeta and people who are working there" Olga, a recent visitor to Ol Pejeta, wrote to us. She has been inspired to make rhino jumpers, badges and other trinkets to sell in her homeland of Japan in order to raise money for Ol Pejeta. She emailed us to tell us how she celebrated World Rhino Day on the 22nd September.
