Jimmy Chipperfield donned a skid-lid from the boot of his Rolls Royce

Jimmy Chipperfield donned a skid-lid from the boot of his Rolls Royce, jumped into a 1952 Wolsely Banger and drove amongst a herd of White Rhinos to act as guinea pig.
He wanted to make sure the Rhinos were safe for the public to drive near - this Whitsun week-end. The Rhinos which are new arrivals from South Africa, have not settled down at their new home, Longleat, Wilts as well as he hoped - already one has broken loose, another has broke off her horn in a fight.

With unwavering determination etched upon his face, he fearlessly drives amidst a herd of White Rhinos, acting as their guinea pig.

Concerned for public safety, Jimmy takes it upon himself to test whether these magnificent beasts are ready for human interaction. One can only imagine the thrill that must course through his veins as he navigates through this extraordinary safari experience. The scene captures not only Jimmy's audacity but also highlights the delicate balance between man and nature. The Rhinos' unpredictable behavior is evident - one has already broken loose while another has lost her horn in an intense battle. Yet amidst these challenges lies hope; hope that with time and understanding, harmony can be achieved within this unique ecosystem. This mesmerizing snapshot transports us back to May 1971 when adventure knew no bounds.
