Hello,

 

Not sure if this was on TV recently - this documentary is on the current program guide of Emirates' ICE system.  Watched this  when I was coming back home from my business trip.

 

It's basically about the relocation of South Africa's Rhinos from the Umfolozi reserve where the poaching is rife - really dramatic footage too ..... Worth a watch!!!

 

Why is called "Flying Rhinos"? - because, that's how they are relocated out of thick bush ....... by helicopter.

Thanks @madaboutcheetah - I will need plenty of ICE entertainment on my upcoming 12-hour flight on Emirates and I will keep an eye out for "flying Rhinos".

Those of you flying Emirates soon - the entire BBC series, "Africa" is there too - the episode Kalahari is spectacular if you haven't seen it yet.  Great giraffe footage.
