Safari Diary, MAASAI MARA – Sep 2015

SAFARI DIARY

Photo Tour, Maasai Mara in Kenya

7 September 2015

The Safari Link flight from Nairobi arrived at 11:00 at Ol Kiombo airstrip in the Maasai Mara National Reserve. My guests were welcomed to the Mara with with the sight of wildebeest as far as the eye can see. Our plan to drive to camp from the airstrip changed into a photographic detour with my guests photographing a crossing even before they had checked into camp. After this very exciting start to the photo tour we arrived at camp at 2:30pm, checked in, had lunch, and then it was time to go out again. During our first official game drive we fought through a sea of wildebeest to find a cheetah mother and her four small cubs as well as a few mating pairs of lions. These got the shutters firing fiercely and was a great way to start our week in the Maasai Mara!

Safari Diary, SERENGETI – 2015/03/09

SAFARI DIARY

Photo Tour, Serengeti National Park in Tanzania

9 March 2015

Our journey stared in Arusha and we arrived at 10am at the Southern Serengeti airstrip. We got to camp early and had time to settle in before the afternoon game drive. We were lucky to start our trip with a young male leopard up a tree. He was a beautiful specimen and we decided to stay with him for the whole afternoon as the light got better and he delivered some stunning poses. This was a great way to get our eyes in for the photography that would follow for the rest of the week! On the way back to camp we came across a Francolin on a termite mound, perfect for photographing against the setting sun!

Safari Diary, ANTARCTICA – 2014/11/20

SAFARI DIARY

Falklands, South Georgia and Antarctica Photo Tour

19 November 2014

Our journey started in Ushuaia in Argentina – the southern most town in the world and the gateway to Antarctica. By this time Shem and I had been here a few days and that was a good thing considering that our luggage was lost on the way there and the few extra days was enough buffer to find it again in time for our trip. We were going to board the ship the next day, so in the afternoon we decided to hike up a mountain next to Ushuaia to take a few photos and getting our “shutter fingers” warmed up.
