It probably doesn’t come as a surprise to most of you that Kenya’s Southern Rift Valley is hot. Really hot. A seemingly inhospitable place that just looks like a barren wasteland. But it’s not. It’s a place teeming with life. Something that photographer Will Burrard-Lucas knows all too well, having spent a great deal of time at the Shompole Wilderness Camp over the last two years.
Will learned early on in his time there that there was a vast array of wildlife. In a single night, he saw five species of cat, three species of hyena and a whole host of other smaller animals. He set up a camera trap at a small water source for a week and saw a massive array of animals visit. It was then decided to build a new watering hole, with a hide, to allow people to observe and photograph the amazing wildlife.
