Hilux helping to save rhinos

A neglected Hilux has been restored and donated to South African National Parks (SANParks) to help rhino anti-poaching efforts at the Pilanesberg National Park

It was thanks to Northam Toyota’s Shaun Finn and assistance from Monitor Dealers that this project worth R230  000 was completed.

It’s not the first time Toyota has donated a vehicle to SANParks. Recent contributions include four Avanza models used for law enforcement, a brand-new Hilux double-cab 4×4 for anti-poaching activities, as well as R450  000 for the refurbishing of six vehicles and extension of their service plans.

“Protecting our wildlife heritage is close to our heart,” says Vice President of Service, Customer Service and Future Toyota at Toyota South Africa Motors John Thomson.

“The plight of rhino and other endangered species requires our attention.”
