The Ol Pejeta Conservancy, in the Laikipia district of central Kenya, is the largest black rhino sanctuary in East Africa and home to 100 black rhinos. Sadly, even here, it is rare that one can invoke the collective for rhino, but last week some lucky people actually witnessed a crash in the form of a mid-day battle between two Laikipia black rhino.

The clash was a result of a young rhino straying into another’s territory. The two rhino sparred, chased and attacked and finally the vanquished went to salve its not inconsiderable wounds in a water tank not generally used for this purpose.

Thanks to Kicheche guest Judith Willock and her guide Andrew for capturing this moment.
