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


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!
