Name meaning: ‘The First Arrival’ in Maa.
The oldest rhino at Sera, Loseku is a big male who really seems to dislike the company of other rhinos and is almost always found alone. However, he has recently been spending time with Naitamany (ID #4) and her calf Ntangaswa.
He’s fairly relaxed around people and is always a good one to track as he allows you to get quite close and it takes a lot to spook him but he can get suspicious and run away. Some of the rangers talk of getting safely within a few metres of him. Most rangers consider him one of the nicer rhinos.
