My favourite sighting of 2020

My favourite sighting of 2020 came during our last day in Ndutu where I was hosting our Best of Serengeti safari. We had just found a den site where a Lioness was hiding her cubs, who could not have been older than a day or two. To ensure that the area doesn’t get a lot of [...]

The trip I look forward to most in 2021…

It is always hard to pick a favourite, but the trip I look forward to most in 2021 is Madagascar. This magnificent island which is the fourth largest in the world, is situated off the southeast coast of Africa, and plays home to large variety of different animals. Having personally only been to the coastline [...]

What trip am I looking forward to the most?

This is a tough one to decide on after a year of not really traveling much… Before South Africa went into full COVID Lockdown in March, I was about to fly out to India to host a safari, one that I was very excited for and was merely days away from getting onto the plane [...]

My favourite image of 2020

My favourite image of 2020 just happened to be during my first and only safari for the year. I was fortunate enough to get 4 weeks of safari in the Serengeti before the world changed and South Africa went into lockdown. During the 4 weeks in the Serengeti we had a huge amount of rain, [...]

I have loved photography for as long as I can remember, taking pictures with basic point and shoot digital cameras with little understanding of the technical or artistic aspects. My dad is an enthusiastic photographer and [...]

Stepping Out After Lockdown: An Adventure to Amboseli and the Masai Mara

If you'd asked me back in April whether I would have the pleasure of hosting another safari in 2020 I would have been very pessimistic. However, as things across the globe changed and evolved, the lockdown restrictions here in South Africa were eased in October and prospects of travel were starting to become a reality. [...]

The Amboseli National Park

The Amboseli National Park is one of my favorite reserves in Africa. In my opinion, it’s home to the most iconic African scene: If you do not know what mountain this is, I’ll inform you in just a bit. But apart from that perfect setting, the parks diversity in all aspects are just incredible and […]

As a beginner where do you start as a photographer?

Starting photography can be a very daunting task, I can tell you this from first hand experience. I have been taking photographs for a number of years now and what I love about photography is that there is always something new to learn, not only about the constant new technology coming out, but also about […]
