2016 Ultimate Big 5 Safari Feedback

By |15th November 2016|Trip Reports|

As I have mentioned in numerous previous posts over the years, the Ultimate Big 5 Safari has proven to be the very best introduction to African wildlife for photographers that you can get. Our most recent edition (the 6th one) underlined this with some amazing photo opportunities presenting themselves for [...]

Review: The Perfect Travel Camera Case

By |21st October 2016|Equipment, Reviews|

ThinkTank have released what I think is probably the perfect roller for the photographer who needs to travel by air with a decent amount of kit on any kind of photography excursion. As many of my readers over the years will already know, one of the biggest problems I have [...]

The History Of The Ultimate Big 5 Safari

By |6th September 2016|Trip Reports|

After the first safari I hosted for Nikongear in 2009, I decided that road trips with a group of people were not the kind of adventures I found conducive to good photographic experiences. Getting everybody to convene at pre-determined times and stay together was like herding cats, an exercise in [...]

Some highlights from the Ultimate Big 5 Safari 2015

By |22nd October 2015|Photography, Trip Reports, Videos|

I'm just going to come right out and say it: nobody does African photo safaris quite like we do. We are definitely the best at this. Over the past 5 years we have returned to the Sabi Sands 5 times and each time we've gone there we have had sightings that [...]

A Minute Or Two On The Wild Waterways

By |14th October 2015|General, Trip Reports, Videos|

Often when I am on safari I find myself torn between shooting video or shooting stills. Although I am primarily a photographer, video is becoming an increasingly more interesting field to me. I'm slowly getting the hang of making videos, although I am nowhere near the point where I can [...]

The African Fish Eagle

By |24th September 2015|Photography, Trip Reports|

We'd all love to get the best bird shot of our lives, but unless you have some kind of pre-cognitive ability that transcends normality, knowing where and when a fish eagle is going to swoop down and grab a hapless fish out of the river is close to impossible. So [...]

Hyena Mafiosi

By |14th August 2015|General, Trip Reports|

They lurk around the bush like gangsters, always looking for an easy score and because they're so good at scavenging they have earned their reputation as one of Africa's least loved animals. But if you look a little deeper at the way hyenas operate you'll begin to get an appreciation [...]

Photographing Leopards In the Sabi Sands

By |3rd August 2015|General, Photography|

There's no other place on earth where you will get closer to and have more encounters with leopards than at the Sabi Sands Private Game Reserve. The region has the highest density of leopards in Africa, mainly because of the tree-filled terrain which is the ideal habitat for leopards. They have [...]

7 Photos From 7 Safaris

By |27th July 2015|Photography, Trip Reports|

Since 2009 Pepe and I have put on 7 photographic safaris. The only year we missed was 2011, which for some reason we couldn't find any takers for the 4 different trips we had planned that year. Probably had something to do with the hangover from the 2010 Soccer World Cup [...]

Birds Of The Wild Waterways

By |22nd July 2015|General, Photography|

One of the primary photographic subjects that you will encounter on our Wild Waterways Safari are birds. There are hundreds of different species breeding and living on the banks of the Zambezi (and Chobe) rivers. On our inaugural trip there in 2014 we had the opportunity to photograph many of [...]
