In the previous post on Lake Nakuru, I had mentioned that our vehicle had a break down and refused to start. Every passing vehicle would stop by and their driver would try to help our driver start the vehicle, but without much success. While our driver was at it, we were busy scouting the horizon for some action. That’s when we noticed a male White Rhinoceros grazing at a distance from the safari road.

He was busy foraging and unknowingly getting closer to our vehicle. When we had first seen him, he was barely within the range of my 300mm f2.8 with 2x TC. At one point the commotion of the unsuccessful attempts to start the vehicle attracted his attention and he took notice of us.

After all the vehicles left, it was just him and us in the vast Lake Nakuru landscape. That’s when he made his move to get even closer to us. Eventually he crossed the safari road close to our broken down vehicle, giving us the opportunity for the feature image of this post.
