I have several favourite places in the West African bush,

…and the oasis of Midik is one of them.

My love for Midik (in particular, the seasonal waters of Midik) is shared by horses and dogs alike.

My mount Sahara was a bit upset that I was on the ground taking pictures, rather than being on her back and riding through the water (giving her the opportunity to splash us both with cool, muddy water!).

But that was to come soon after, because first, I had a particular photoshoot in mind that I did not want to miss!

Ecco was not exactly loving the concept of water,

Dive wanted to join in,

…and then the whole herd crossed the remnants of the lake together,

…doing some extra rounds just so that the dogs could have some additional fun!

A great day at the park oasis, according to Sheba!
