The African Buffalo

The African Buffalo

The African Buffalo, a member of the african Big Fives, is one of my favorite animal to photograph. When he doesn’t fill threatened, he is usually curious, perfect for portraits. They often live in large herds, grazing the open grassland. The older males are...
Trees of the Serengeti

Trees of the Serengeti

The Serengeti in Tanzania is a place dear to my heart, not just for its spectacular wildlife. I really enjoy exploring the vastness of the plains, it is so peaceful and quiet. Watching the grass moving from the light breeze next to some of the most beautiful trees on...
Lake Tahoe, California

Lake Tahoe, California

I braved the Friday afternoon rush hours in the Bay area to head up to Lake Tahoe for a very short weekend. The scenery is stunning, with granitic outcrops everywhere. Despite a lack of clouds, experiencing this place on a bright sunny day is something to remember....
Curious Hyenas

Curious Hyenas

In my opinion, Hyenas do not deserve to be part of the African “ugly fives”. They do have an odd shape with their short back legs and thick and powerful neck and jaws. They are also very cute, in their own way, particularly when you can interact with them....
Aerial Photography in the Serengeti

Aerial Photography in the Serengeti

Anti-poaching rules prevents us from using drones to capture aerial photography in the Serengeti. An alternative to shoot from the sky is to use hot air balloons, an experience that goes far beyond photography. I got the chance to experience it in two occasions, once...
The Lion in Londolozi

The Lion in Londolozi

Elmon Mhlongo, our tracker, was tracking this lion in the dense bush of Londolozi at dusk, unsuccessfully. We abandoned our search and instead stoped in a great location for a sundowner with traditional G&T. a sudden roaring in the far distance interrupted us....
Leopards of Londolozi

Leopards of Londolozi

I heard that if you spend two nights at Londolozi game reserve in Sabi Sands, South Africa, you will see leopards. I was skeptical, leopards are elusive cats. I was stunned when we encountered a female leopard with its recent catch of the day, an adult impala she...
The Great Migration

The Great Migration

The great migration in the Serengeti/Mara region is certainly one of the greateast natural spectacle that one can see. Most favour the famous Mara Crossing when thousands of wildebeests cross the Mara river at once, into Kenya. Although I attempted to see this from...
Storm in the Serengeti

Storm in the Serengeti

When I shoot black & white photographs, I search for contrast and light. Storms typically offer both. They create dramatic scenes. I was particularly fortunate to take a picture of this Lion who was gently walking away from an incoming storm, during the wet...
Hippo in the Zambezi

Hippo in the Zambezi

I was gently cruising the Zambezi river, upstream from the Victoria Falls when this angry hippopotamus suddenly surged out of the water. Hippos are famous for capsizing small boats, this was another demonstration of the power of this territorial animal. I took this...
