Wednesday photo: Rhinos

Rhinos. Bobejane. One of the animals I saw in Kenya from very far away, but today that changed. 

 Rhinos at Hlane 
I’m at Hlane Royal National Park. As a volunteer, I am allowed just one night away from my site per month for the first three months. I chose my first night away to be here, where I can see some of the animals I have grown to love like elephants and giraffes and to see ones I have not had a close encounter with. 

Now I’m sitting at the watering hole waiting for elephants and also my impala curry dinner. There’s some nearby birds, hippos in the water, and some unidentifiable noises. Our guess is the naughty pig–which its name translates to in siSwati–the warthog. 

It is time to get back to watching now.
