Javan Rhino Observation



javan rhino at ujungkulon national park
Rhinoceos Sondaicus

Javan Rhinoceros (Rhinoceros sondaicus) is the rarest mammal on earth, and this species has been classified as Critically endangered by IUCN. 
There are only around 50 javan rhinos left, and there are none in zoos or captive facilities, therefore the only possible means to observe Javan rhinoceros is through direct observation in the natural habitat.

Due to delicate nature of the species, Rhino observation tour must be conducted very carefully to avoid disturbances to the rhinos and to the habitat. WWF Indonesia and Ujung Kulon National Park authority have conducted various studies to find the best possible way to observe these endangered animals.
This can be achieved through restrictions such as:
  • Limit of only 16 visitors per year
  • Tour is not operated between July – August (rhino mating season)
  • Observation distance of 10 meters or more (no direct contacts)
In addition to the above restrictions, observers will wait at certain locations (wallowings, rhino crossings, etc) instead of chasing or following the rhino. This method is proven to be less disturbing to the rhinos.

This is an exclusive eco-adventure tour with opportunity to observe Javan Rhino in the natural habitat
