There is a very special place in Kenya that boasts the highest number of rhinos in a single conservancy/park in the world. There are between 300-400 white and black rhinos in the 19,000 acre conservancy surrounded by the 45,000 acre ranch. It plays a central role in the rehabilitation of the species in East Africa, boasting the most successful private rhino breeding reserve in the world and helps to facilitate reintroduction of rhinos all over Africa. Talk about a recovery of a species. #watchthisspace

Amish is a Zambia raised award winning wildlife and conservation photographer based out of Barcelona, Spain. Growing up in Zambia, he was fortunate to be in close proximity to the African flora and fauna. The serenity of these vast lands, the blissful feelings it created, and the excitement of spotting wildlife often transpired; more so when he found photography (or when photography found him). “This is not a business for me, it is part of a revolution to protect the planet and its wildlife inhabitants using the most powerful weapon I own – my camera.”
