Artist's Description

One of the most appealing features of “The Hide” safari camp in Hwange National Park, Zimbabwe, is the location of it’s ‘blind’ or ‘hide’ right at the edge of the camps waterhole. Blending into it’s surroundings as an unobtrusive anthill, it places you right in the center of the action as the wildlife gathers to drink.

Dry conditions throughout the park and ever shrinking watering supplies at the remaining waterholes made this an extremely high traffic area. We estimated that roughly 1000 elephants (Loxodonta africana) were visiting this waterhole per day and so the congestion could be intense at times. With all the commotion of elephants competing for a share of the ever diminishing water supply, young elephants were understandably and visible nervous and agitated. Here a young elephant reaches out to touch it’s mother, seeking the reassurance of her presence in contrast to the mayham that surrounds them.
