About: Kipenzi

Kidogo and Ongava are the proud parents of Kipenzi, which means spoiled with love in Swahili. She enjoys scratches from keepers, running laps around the yard, and hanging out with her mom. She is very curious and will approach most new enrichment items quickly. Rhino poaching is at an all-time high with 3 rhinos being killed a day in Africa for their horns. Kipenzi is a proud ambassador for her wild counterparts and encourages you to support Rhinos in the wild by not buying products made from rhino horn and by visiting the zoo, often!
