oa Madoqua - The past and present distribution and status of the black rhinoceros (Diceros bicornis Linn. 1758) in South West Africa

Volume 1, Issue 4
  • ISSN : 1011-5498



Available information indicates that the black rhinoceros was formerly distributed from the Kunene River south to the Orange River, along the escarpment and eastwards past Gobabis. At present its distribution is limited to the northwestern corner of South West Africa. Apparently the black rhinoceros population never reached very high numbers in South West Africa. During 1966 there were only 90 animals left in the territory.
