Adobe has released a new version of Lightroom CC which contains a new adjustment tool: The DeHaze slider. It is found in the FX menu of the Development module (way down toward the bottom of the list). I see how it works on a safari photo
A South Africa photo safari will be full of opportunities to photograph animals at close distances. These images have all the details and interesting poses found in modern (human) portraits. You can apply current portrait processing techniques to your wildlife portraits.
