In arid regions across southern Kenya, the waterhole, created by elephants and termites, is central to everyone's life. It is where animals visit to drink, and where some creatures are born and die. Every visit is charged with tension, for a waterhole is the perfect place for predators to wait in ambush.
That is the traditional view -but waterholes are much more, for there is an entire community of creatures that call the waterhole "home," many of whom live at an elephant's toenail height such as frogs, dung beetles and chameleons. This is the remarkable story of the relationship between Africa's largest and smallest and the unique wildlife community they support.
