Makepisi's Afternoon Rest

It has been a while since I posted an image I captured during our epic African safari adventures in October of 2012. I still have quite a few images from that trip to publish. I thought it was time for some leopard love, so here is Makepisi male, a resident of the Timbavati region of... [more]

Big Cat of the Kruger

It has been a while since a leopard turned up 'round these parts, so here is another tight view of Rockfig Jr female, a stunning leopardess who inhabits the Motswari Private Nature Reserve in the Timbavati region of greater Kruger National Park, Mpumalanga province, South Africa.

Cape Town and Table Mountain

During our short stay in Cape Town in October of 2012, during the first few days we could barely see the summit of Table Mountain, due to the 'Tablecloth' - a large formation of cloud which blankets the mountain.

The day before, we had been in the African bushveld, surrounded by amazing wildlife, some of which we had never seen before. After the conclusion of that trip, we had flown back to civilisation, where the only... [more]

Video Highlights of the Timbavati

During our African adventures in the Timbavati region of greater Kruger National Park in  October of 2012, I shot a large number of stills images of the many species of amazing wildlife we encountered there. In addition to my images, I also shot some video footage. I have been wanting to produce a short video... [more]

Africa: Day 5 - Final Game Drive in Timbavati and Departure to Jo'burg

After an intense fourth day in Africa, during which we saw all five members of the 'Big Five' (which, for those who do not know, is a hunting term, not a relative descriptor of animal size) and a decent sleep, we rose before 5am for our final day in Motswari. We knew that we had... [more]
