Location: Port Lympne
Date Of Birth: 21/12/1996
Ruaha was born on the 21st December 1996 to mother Rukwa and father Parky.
Ruaha is very important to the European Breeding Program as her mother Rukwa was wild born and one of the founders of the Port Lympne rhino herd!
Ruaha has had three calves to date. Monduli (07/01/2006), Nkosi (22/01/2011) and Zuri (27/08/2016). Monduli was sent to a reserve in Tanzania during 2012 with two other rhinos and continues to do very well. Nkosi was sent to Folly Farm in October 2015 as part of the European Breeding Program.
Ruaha and Zuri can both be seen together at Port Lympne. Once Zuri is old enough the hope is he will move on and father his own offspring.
