SAFARI DIARY

Photo Workshop, Mashatu Game Reserve in Botswana

20 June 2015

Today was the start of an exciting new “video” workshop to Mashatu by legendary cinematographer, Abraham Joffe. I went along to help out with still photography side of things. We arrived at Main Camp just after lunch and were quickly ready to go out on our afternoon drive. For most guests it was their first trip to Africa, so it was a great privilege for me to introduce them to our iconic animals while getting them up to speed with the photography. Our fist drive included elephants, elephants, elephants and cheetah in golden light. Sundowner drinks with a great sunset concluded a perfect start to the safari.

Safari Diary, S LUANGWA – 2015/06/14

SAFARI DIARY

Photo Workshop, South Luangwa National Park in Zambia

14 June 2015

I can’t believe it’s been almost a year since I’ve last visited South Luangwa. My three guests on this exclusive workshop and I were welcomed by our guide, Meyam, as we arrived at Mfuwe airport. I was excited to show three people over the next seven days why South Luangwa is one of my favourite destinations! We reached camp just before the afternoon game drive time, and although we had seen most of the animals, including lions and elephants on the way up, none of us wasted time getting ready for our first drive. An incredible start to the safari included elephants play-fighting, owlets in a spotlight and a leopard stalking impala. With all that excitement, we can’t wait to see what tomorrow will bring.
