Size Guide


This stunning painting captures the essence of the African wilderness in one breathtaking image. With Mount Kilimanjaro towering in the background, this masterpiece features a stunning array of animals from a national park, all depicted in vivid and lifelike detail. From the graceful flamingos soaring through the air to the playful hippos with their young, every creature is rendered with a sense of wonder and awe.

As you gaze at this painting, you can almost feel the chill of a winter morning in the air. The frost on the ground and the mist rising from the water add to the sense of realism and depth, transporting you directly to the scene depicted. The painting has an incredible ability to draw you in, making you feel as though you are standing right there among the animals.

Perhaps what makes this painting so remarkable is the way the animals have all gathered within the frame. It's as if they know they are being watched and have come together to put on a show. The antelopes and warthogs graze peacefully in the foreground, while the hippos and their young playfully splash around in the water. The flamingos, meanwhile, create a stunning display in the sky, adding a sense of movement and energy to the piece.

The baobab trees, which are so iconic of the African landscape, also play a prominent role in the painting. Their gnarled and twisted trunks seem to stretch up toward the sky, adding a sense of grandeur and majesty to the scene. The way they are framed against the backdrop of Kilimanjaro only adds to their impact, highlighting their significance as an enduring symbol of Africa.

One of the most striking things about this painting is the way the artist has captured the individual personalities of each animal. From the gentle gaze of the antelopes to the playful antics of the hippos, each creature seems to have a unique story to tell. The level of detail in the painting is truly remarkable, with every brushstroke serving to enhance the sense of realism and depth.

The Serengeti is a vast savanna that spans over 30,000 square kilometers in Tanzania, East Africa. It is home to a wide variety of animals, including wildebeest, zebras, giraffes, elephants, lions, cheetahs, hyenas, and more. During the rainy season, thunderstorms are a common occurrence in the Serengeti, and the animals must adapt to this change in weather.

For many animals, the thunderstorm is a welcome relief from the heat and dust of the dry season. The rain brings fresh water and nourishment to the savanna, making it a prime feeding ground for grazing animals. The grass becomes lush and green, and the herds of wildebeest and zebras follow the rain in search of fresh vegetation. The predators, including lions and hyenas, take advantage of the abundance of prey and become more active during this time.

However, the thunderstorm also presents challenges for the animals in the Serengeti. The heavy rain can create flooding, making it difficult for animals to cross rivers and navigate through the savanna. The wind and lightning can also be dangerous, with trees and branches falling and lightning strikes posing a threat to animals on the open savanna.

Despite these challenges, the animals in the Serengeti are adapted to life in this environment and have developed various strategies to cope with the thunderstorms. Some animals, such as elephants, seek shelter in dense woodland areas or under large trees to avoid the brunt of the storm. Others, such as wildebeest and zebras, simply huddle together and wait out the storm, finding safety in numbers. 

Overall, the thunderstorm is a natural and necessary part of life in the Serengeti, and the animals have adapted to its presence over thousands of years. For those lucky enough to witness a thunderstorm in the Serengeti, it is a truly awe-inspiring sight to see the animals in their element, braving the elements and surviving in one of the world's most challenging environments.
