Tiva – A River of Sand

The Tiva sand river in the Tsavo National Park in Kenya was a lifeline during the desperately dry times in 1974. Survival of the fittest meant that only the strongest survived the drought but surprisingly some animals chose to start a family, against all the odds. Even more surprising, however, is how the area looks today, despite warnings at the time that it would never recover. This film is a poignant reminder of nature’s resilience, if left alone to right itself.
