Tsavo West National Park

Elephants drinking at night.
At the time of this photo there was a terrible drought in Tsavo and much of Kenya.  Many animals were dying and highly stressed due to the lack of water.  I was staying at the former house of the park warden where this watering hole is maintained.  Elephants would come to drink, especially at night.

This is the same watering hole during the day.
