When your idea of wildlife is from a David Attenborough documentary, nothing will compare to when you first see animals roaming free across the plains of Africa. The word “safari” in Swahili translates to “going on a journey” and we have many choices to suit every style. Africa is a photographer’s dream, a palette of colours and contrast: explore the wildebeest migration in the Serengeti; be captivated by the mountain gorillas in Uganda, watch mesmorized as a herd of elephant take a mud bath in Hwange National Park in Zimbabwe. Interact with the local Bushmen in Namibia, the Maasai in Kenya and learn the history of the Apartheid era in South Africa. Follow old trade routes through Zambia, or walk into the heartland of the Namib Desert and watch the dunes glow as the sun set closes on another day in Africa. The experience is life changing!
