Our 2023 safaris were exceptionally full of wildlife and brought pleasant surprises and unusual sightings. We visit 3 different areas within the Greater Kruger Park and the Park itself. We tracked leopards in Sabi Sands and photographed from a unique water level hide.
Our May 2022 Small Group Safari in South Africa was full of wildlife and wonderful photographic opportunities and settings. We photographed in Kruger Park, Sabi Sands Reserve, and at a special private wildlife hide at water level to a watering hole
I present my trip report from our first ever visit to the water level underground photographic hide in May 2022. This was an exciting new way to photograph and highly successful with notable visits from giraffe and elephant herds. We will be looking forward to many future visits.

Members of a Southern Ground Hornbill family group take on different roles in order to raise chicks. Family members also must cooperate to defend territory or risk young members being kidnapped by rival hornbill groups.

A safari is an adventure and like all adventures it is full of stories and special moments.
Great photographs enhance and help tell the story. This post is a menu to what I feel are my best Safari Photo Stories
If you go on a safari, you will return with hundreds of stories from the wild: predator vs prey, survival, and cooperation among wildlife.
My two May 2017 safaris were filled with special wildlife encounters, good weather, good company with some really terrific guests. I have presented below what I felt were themes present in each safari that made it special.
We had many wonderful leopard moments over the course of our September safari groups. This evening game drive was especially nice: we tracked a male leopard named Tingana while he went on his early evening rounds
