Fantastic Foto Friday: Crocodiles in Chobe National Park, Botswana

Wildlife watching is fascinating in Africa. What sets Chobe National Park in Botswana apart from other parks is the chance to see wildlife from a boat, a very different and more relaxing experience than rushing around in a Land Cruiser! And it gives you a comfortable distance when spotting huge crocodiles like this!

Fantastic Foto Friday: Beautyful nature at the end of the world: Sossusvlei, Namibia

Namibia is one of the least populated countries on Earth and the Sossusvlei desert is the most remote region I have ever visited. It’s strikingly beautiful and very much worth the effort! I went as part of my Cape Town to Victoria Falls Adventure and highly recommend the trip!

Fantastic Foto Friday: Leopard in South Africa

At this point, the leopard is about 15' away from me.  He had climbed up into the tree and I started shooting multiple exposures.  Suddenly he came back down and looked straight at me.  He was on a west to find his mother.  He was a 1-2 year young male leopard.

Robin took this stunning photo full of tension  in Ngala, South Africa. The 1-2 year old young male leopard had just jumped out of a tree and looked straight at him! Ngala is a safari camp on the edge of Krueger National Park in South Africa with great game drives. Robin has more, equally captivating photos on Robin’s Photo Site. You can view them, order photos or create photo products on the site!
I had similar experiences on my trip to Krueger National Park. You can also stay in camps inside the park, go on bush walks or rides with the rangers or go on a game drive in your own car – spotting a pride of lions on my own was one of my most exciting wildlife experiences!

The Okavango Delta is a phenomenal experience: The huge river just fizzles out into the desert, leaving behind a stunning landscape and amazing wildlife to explore. I was fortunate to see it from the air – before exploring it in a tiny dugout canoe. I will never forget those sights…

Fantastic Foto Friday: Chobe National Park, Botswana!

Chobe ElephantCrossing

Wildlife in Africa is amazing in many of the national parks. What makes Chobe National Park in Botswana so special is its location along the river. Being able to explore the park not only by jeep, but also by boat, provided us with unique sights, like this huge elephant swimming through the river, a feat that is hard to believe and I’d never seen before!

Fantastic Foto Friday: Pyramids, Egypt

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

When I saw the Pyramids for the first time, stark against the sky, with people appearing as tiny as ants in front of them, I was in awe how human beings could have possibly built a monument of this size more than 3,000 years ago! This photo shows the Chephren pyramid outside Cairo!
