The Rhinos Are Coming to Radisson Blu in South Africa

Our South African Radisson Blu properties have recently partnered with the non-profit organization “The Rhinos Are Coming” to raise awareness and funds in the fight against rhino poaching in South Africa.

On April 6 2017 a herd of life sized Rhinos, sponsored by various local businesses and organizations, painted by both famous an emerging artists, embarked on a Grand Rhino Roadshow.

Touring Cape Town and the surrounding Winelands, those unique pieces of contemporary art will build the basis of a region-wide three-month-long Outdoor Art Exhibition. The goal of this unique initiative is to raise awareness and funds to support StopRhinoPoaching in their efforts to actively fight Rhino poaching within South Africa. The roadshow will culminate with our very own unique Rhino being displayed at various Radisson Blu and Park Inn by Radisson Hotels, to further entrench our efforts to raise awareness around this worthy cause.

At Radisson Blu and Park Inn by Radisson, it is such a critical part of our DNA to positively impact our communities, animals and environment - in essence to always Think Planet as 1 of our 3 pillars in our Responsible Business initiative. We are proud to support this exceptional fundraising project and sponsor a colorful Rhino figure. The incredibly talented Andrew Hart Adler made this rhino his canvas to showcase in Radisson Blu and Park Inn properties around South Africa.
