Black rhino beauty

Pamushana · September 2019

It’s so satisfying to feed off the excitement of guests seeing some of Africa’s wildlife for the first time, and this was no exception as we trundled down a track and they spotted a rhino. It turned out to be a black rhino which are known to be far more volatile in nature than white rhinos. This one, however, didn’t charge us or race off into the bushes a second later, instead it slowly circled around assessing us.

At one point a fling of oxpeckers flew in to land on their host, while two fork-tailed drongos sat waiting for the big beast to run off and disturb the savannah’s insects as it went.
