Artist's Description

All rhinos are endangered, so many having been massacred by poachers for their horns. Fortunately there are now many game parks in various African countries endeavouring to bring numbers back up to levels where the threat of extinction is diminished.

These creatures are truly magnificent; primitive, primeaval, and with a rugged, powerful beauty. It is a privilege to be close to them, albeit from the security of a vehicle: they are not to be underestimated.

This fellow is one of over 50 now roaming Lewa game park in Kenya. He caught the scent of an orange that one of our party had peeled and was desperately trying to find the source of the tantalising aroma. Fortunately for us, he lost the scent and finally wandered off.
