“The Angel”
_

Portrait of one of the favourites of the Mara known as Malaika which means angel in Swahili. Sadly, she disappeared in March and is now presumed dead. Her two male cubs were around 20 months old at the time and, fortunately, old enough to survive independently.

Black rhino can be seen in the Mara but sightings are rare. Did you know that the name has nothing to do with their colour? They are called black rhino to distinguish them from the earlier named white rhino where “white” is a corruption of the Dutch word “wijd” referring to their wide, square-shaped mouths used for grazing. In contrast, black rhino are “browsers”, plucking leaves and shoots from shrubs rather than eating grass.
