The park’s rangers struggle to detect all the poachers moving around in the area. Poaching is a profitable activity; criminal gangs sell rhino horn for up to USD50,000 a kilo (roughly SEK425,000). In the 1970s there were 20,000 black rhinos in Kenya, whereas today there are only about 650. And 65 of these live in the Ngulia area.
