I left home just over 25 days ago now and am so thoroughly relaxed I think I’m ruined for life back in “the real world” when I return in a few days. I woke this morning to the sounds of birds and frogs and a troop of baboons loudly expressing their displeasure at a nearby leopard. Not a bad way to begin the day.
Here are a few images from the last couple weeks – I’ve shot about 9000 frames and have barely had a moment to ingest them, and back them up, let alone look at them, but a couple jumped out at me this morning so I thought I’d share some of the magic with you. This is my favourite part of what I do: not the photography, really, but seeing the wonder on the faces of clients and friends as they encounter this place and these fantastic beasts for the first time. Seeing a big cat stare into your soul, or feeling the ground shake when a couple hundred Cape Buffalo stampede at sunset (while you’re lying on your belly photographing them) just never gets old.
