A prevalence of wildlife poaching with escalations has occurred since 2008, especially regarding rhinoceros poaching. It is essential to protect southern Africa’s heritage by developing/adapting new research methods and techniques that can assist prosecutors to improve their successes in achieving convictions. The aim of the study was to investigate the use of forensic geomorphology in the context of a poached rhino to assist in the prosecution of suspected poachers. This study was conducted at two experimental study sites which mimicked the aspects of the landscape of rhinoceros by utilising the landscape through a variety of physical, chemical and biological techniques. Trace evidence was removed from the suspects that moved through the mimicked landscape in order to verify if any significant similarities could be identified. The study concluded that a linkage could be recognized between the selected landscape and the trace evidence collected from the suspects’ belongings in both experimental studies. The results from the first experimental study site illustrated that a definite linkage could be made between the suspects and the landscape, whereas the second experimental study site suggested that there was a possibility that a linkage could be made.
