C; 'Their' in original sentence is confusing (it can refer to tourists or rhino)

"C" should be right, although I have some doubt on the use of present partiiciple continous here

C is definitely correct. It solves the pronoun problem and is in the correct tense.

A and B have a misused pronoun. Does their refer to the rhinos or the people??

D and E are wrong because the correct structure for using if is "if X than Y"

It's not A because "and see" is not correct. Should be "to see". I am going to the park to see rhinos. Not, I am going to the park and see rhinos. I think the answer is C.
