Join Martine in her fifth African adventure in Lauren St John's bestselling THE WHITE GIRAFFE series.

When Sawubona's white rhinos are attacked, the poachers leave behind a terrified calf. Devastated but determined to help, Martine and Ben agree to take the rhino baby to a sanctuary near the Golden Gate Highlands National Park.

But the sanctuary is hiding a precious secret - one that must be guarded from the poachers at all costs. When the secret gets out, Martine and Ben find themselves in the fight of their lives to save one of the rarest animals on earth. But who can they trust?

A magical and heartwarming adventure about saving endangered species.

“A brilliant read!”

The main characters of the White Giraffe Series make a noticeable difference to the world by being compassionate, quick-witted and resilient. Very proud to have the books in my ‘mini’ home library! Freddie, age 8
