It was late evening, and the sun was just setting and these incredible animals came down to drink at the waterhole at Khama Rhino Sanctuary.
Most of the rhino in Botswana have been moved to Khama Rhino sanctuary, and here they are protected 24/7 by the army against poaching. Isn't it a sad state of affairs that we cannot leave these animals in their natural habitat, but have to guard them to ensure that they escape from cruel poaching for their horns which are no more than compressed hair - but for some strange reason their phallic shape makes them highly sought after by ignorant people as an aphrodisiac.
