Amazing sighting that you do not see often. We also saw a rhino bull die from it’s injuries in Kruger many years ago. It was very emotional to witness it.

I was so glad to know that this was not a fight to the end and that although cut and hurt, both walked away! Waterholes certainly aren’t always idlic places of repose!

Believe I was actually at this water hole a few weeks ago. Watched a buffalo herd drinking while (3) rhino seemed to amuse themselves by charging the various buffalo away, but perhaps they were saying find another waterhole buffalo. At another rhino sighting with (6) rhino around a mud hole one of the perimeter rhino seemed to bleeding from its nostril. We’ve been wondering if this was a horn injury or perhaps some kind of sickness?

Seeing those two rhinos charge out of the bush must have been heart stopping. I knew they were territorial but did not realize the fighting could be so intense.

That had to have been a heart stopping moment. Good to know no one was injured seriously. I knew they were territorial but not to that extent.

Wow! What an exciting sighting, Rob! I would love to have been there, but agree that I would not want to see one of these rare creatures killed either! Love the sounds in the video! Thanks for sharing!

It is so rare to see rhinos fighting! I’m fascinated by the noises they make when they fight!
