This is a painting of two burly looking buffalo on the bank of the Mara River in Kenya during the late dry season in October when the grass and vegetation has dried out. The whole length of the Mara River in the Triangle section of the National Reserve is densely forested and is host to countless groups of buffalo such as this. This scene is of a stretch of river downstream of of a favorite campsite in the Mara Triangle. This painting is based on two individuals I saw regularly on the outskirts of our campsite. One had to be very careful with these solitary buffalo. Near here a ranger was gored badly while out on foot patrol.
