With numbers dwindling at an increasing rate due to poaching, this young white rhino (Ceratotherium simum) faces an uncertain future.

Despite the fact that humans are potentially such a threat to his existence, this young fellow was incredibly relaxed around our vehicle, providing a fantastic photo opportunity.

Although Canadian by birth, I grew up in Africa and from an early age travel became a regular part of my life. As a result I developed an early passion for my two great loves, Africa and aviation. Being fortunate to return to Africa every year with our own safari company “Explorations Africa”, all of my photos of wildlife are taken in their natural and unstaged settings. Please visit us at
