Some highlights from the Ultimate Big 5 Safari 2015

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 [...]

7 Photos From 7 Safaris

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 [...]

Sunset On The Zambezi River

One of the best things about visiting the Zambezi River at the confluence is the incredible sunsets we are treated to every day. Photographing them from the water on a boat can be tricky and a tripod won't help you, so you need to be aware of your metering and ISO [...]

Sossusvlei Revisited

Sossussvlei is certainly an interesting place to visit for photography. There’s a small amount of game to be seen around, mostly Gemsbok (Oryx) and Springbok, but the main reason people come here is to marvel at the enormous red dunes that make up this part of the Namib desert. The sand here is a very fine, coppery red and the dunes take on amazing colours throughout the day as the sun passes overhead. We spent our first two nights in the Sossusvlei Lodge, which is just outside the main gates to the Sossussvlei Nature Reserve. A very nice, place to stay, although it is a pretty large camp. They provide free wifi there, which was the first time we had been connected to the internet properly for a few days, so it gave us a chance to check on emails, post some photos and do other online things. […]

Lion kill in Etosha

On our fourth day in the Etosha National Park we found ourselves decamped to the North-eastern edge of the great Etosha pan at the secluded Onkoshi Camp. It wasn't possible for us to use our own vehicles to get to this camp from Fort Namutoni, so we were ferried there in open [...]
