As night approaches, family groups of elephants (loxodnta africana) make the daily trek to the waterhole. Gathering in numbers approaching 1000 per day, “The Hide” safari camp’s waterhole provides the perfect spot to enjoy these majestic beasts.

Hwange National Park, Zimbabwe

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
