I hosted 2 wonderful photo safari groups in May 2015. My guests returned with many great action, predator, and close up images.
Elephants can be very entertaining and display many personality traits. We were thrilled to spend some time with an elephant family at a mudbath.
My safari guests stay at my own Tree House lodge which I build myself. We are very proud to announce a new addition to Our Lodge. Our 4th tree house is complete and ready for guests.
Our guests have just returned home and I have spent some time sorting through all of the wonderful photos taken over the past 10 days. As I sort through I am reminded of all the great moment so now is the best time to do this blog post of my favorite memories and photos
Vultures have a specific job to do but to do it right takes specialization. Species of vulture have evolved to specialize in the many jobs needed to process down a carcass. Each vulture species has a different set of tools for different jobs.
Since we host safaris in both April/May and September/October we get asked frequently which is the best choice for a photo and wildlife safari . The short answer is that they are both great times to visit South Africa and see wildlife. Given this, there are differences which I will point out.
I had a wonderful group of guests this year and together we had loads of fun and adventure. I want to thank them for making this a very memorable safari season and I hope to travel with them again and keep in touch. A special memory for me is safari guests who returned this year and said it was even better than last time!

During my guided photo safari we have some very special encounters with young animals of all species
