Why is it that we search for unique destinations, the authentic ones, the hidden gems? Perhaps we are searching for places to escape to, places which give us glimpses into a world minus modern day noise. I have found myself travelling to places which make me feel vulnerable, even a little scared of the unknown. It’s that unpredictably of new surroundings which make us feel alive. Perhaps it’s just that - the feeling of truly living. The un-touched, the authentic and the hidden offer this. Kenya’s Lake Turkana offers this.

I’m sitting on an old safari-style camping chair along the banks of the Mara River as I type this. Through the sound of gentle rapids there’s a heard of elephants snapping branches as they feed across the river. In the fast paced world of today, wild Africa is a tranquil escape and a welcomed break from rushed schedules and constant to-do lists.
One of our favourite regions to take our guests for wildlife photography tours is the Sabi Sands. Having just returned from from an ORYX Private Photo Safari to MalaMala Private Game Reserve in the Sabi Sands, I thought I would share a few images of the areas most iconic species - the leopard.
To truly create powerful and emotive images that capture the beauty and behaviour of birdlife, I believe a photographer has to look beyond 'bird in flight' and get thinking.
For many animal species, when the sun disappears below the horizon their activity continues on into the dark. Photographing wildlife after dark opens a new world for the nature photographer.
Drifting away from the classic animal portrait can be fun. I aspire to create images that stand out from the rest—but to succeed, I have to find an extra element to make my images unique. Photographing animals in their natural habitats is one way to add that extra dimension.
