Save The Rhino Trust.

In 1982. Our Partner, Save the Rhino Trust (SRT) was formed to reduce poaching and save these rhino from the brink of extinction. Save the Rhino’s approach was not only simple, but it was also highly effective. It would be to offer poachers a more secure livelihood as wildlife guards. After three decades of pioneering efforts and collaboration with the Namibian government, the WWF and communities, the black rhino population has quintupled in size and demand for rhino-based tourism is growing steadily.

A small herd of elephants, illuminated from behind by the setting sun, pick up speed and kick up a backlit dust as they approach the edge of the Okaukeujo watering hole. Etosha National Park, Namibia.
A collared cheetah, the only image from Okonjima to make it to these pages. This was the first time I had seen telemetry used to track wild cats and this one, together with its brother were closely guarding an impala kill. Unperturbed by humans, this cat shoulder checks the horizon for competing predators.
Small herds of zebra drinking quielty by the watering hole are almost invariably spooked by some, occasionally real, but usually imagined threat. I timed this backlit shot to take advantage of the young foal in the foreground and sparkling water drops kicked up in the panic. Nebrowni waterhole, Etosha National Park, Namibia.
This leopard had sensibly secreted itself in dense vegetation and avoided a soaking from a heavy downpour, which is more than I can say for myself. While we paused to watch him, I paid the price for occupying a full row of rear seats to myself. When we pulled forward, the rainwater that had collected in the canvas canopy went over the rear edge, onto my head and straight down my collar. Yuk! At least my cameras stayed dry.
