A contented Leopard rests, taking in the view on a branch beneath a freshly hunted female Impala. Leopards drag their kills, as much as twice their body weight, up into the trees to keep them safe from other big cats and scavengers.

Although a fairly common sight in the Masai Mara, the Zebra remains one of the most striking to me. According to our Masai guide, god ran out of paint after the Zebras and so it’s cousin, the poor humble Donkey remains unstriped.

We stared, rapt, listening to the very audible crunch of bones as this mother and cub cheetah fed hungrily on the carcass of an unlucky Topi a mere 8 ft from our Land Cruiser. Seeing these beautiful cats like this was an incredible treat.

A herd of wild elephants on the 394,000 hectare Namunyak Wildlife Conservancy, where the Reteti Elephant Sanctuary is located. Namunyak means "blessed" in Samburu. When our elephants are re-introduced to the wild, it is our hope and our goal that they will be able to rejoin a herd like this one, or maybe even the herd they were separated from in the first place.

A reminder that rhino horn is ONLY useful to rhinos... .

@Regrann from @savetherhinointernational - What is rhino horn?
Rhino horns are similar in structure to horses’ hooves, turtle beaks, and cockatoo bills. They are made of keratin.
Why do people what to buy what is effectively horses hooves?
There has been a recent surge in demand for rhino horn in Viet Nam, where it is being touted as a hangover cure and treatment for terminal illnesses plus many more uses.
A survey carried out by TRAFFIC in 2013 identified that the motivation for consumers buying rhino horn is the emotional benefits rather than medicinal, as it reaffirms their social status among their peers. Image and status is important to these consumers, they tend to be highly educated and successful people who have a powerful social network and no affinity to wildlife. Rhino horns are sometimes bought for the sole purpose of being gifted to others; to family members, business colleagues or people in positions of authority.
