Devil’s Pool at Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe

Once we got through customs and brought our bags to the hotel, our African adventure started by going on a sundowner cruise on the Zambezi river. It was a great way to start the trip. On the cruise we had our first encounter with guides from Zimbabwe. They were fantastic in their warmth, knowledge, and professionalism.  I kept an extra hand on my camera when this guide asked if he could take a photo. Didn't feel like losing my camera in the river so early on my trip! There is wildlife all along the banks of the Zambezi It was a good start to our trip,

Camp Moremi – Okavango, Delta

2020-05-18T20:59:14-07:00May 18th, 2020|Wildlife Photography Blog|

There are few roads, so the best way to get from Victoria Falls to Camp Moremi is by flying Walking to your room, you never know who or what (a bushbuck) might be waiting for you at these camps. You are in the bush, surrounded by wildlife, and can hear the lions and other animals at night.  Our rooms at Camp Moremi were luxurious There was a souvenir waiting for us, courtesy of Luxe Travel and Big Five Safaris The daytime dining and meeting area Speaking of food, the cuisine was great and plentiful, even for a vegan like Dana

After four nights at Camp Moremi our next stop was Camp Okavango, with another set of great guides and staff At this camp there are no Landcruisers. If you walk, it's with  an unarmed guide, since no guns are allowed The mokoro rides are with a guide that moves you through the reeds with a large pole  They had powerboats just like at Camp Moremi, and took us to the islands in the area for our walking tour Our rooms were large, luxurious, comfortable, and with a huge bathroom and shower. The shower was so large we could have had a party in

The Active Zebra of the Okavango Delta

2020-05-18T21:03:21-07:00May 18th, 2020|Wildlife Photography Blog|

The zebra in this part of Africa are called the Common Zebra, also known as the Burchell's Zebra. These are the same ones you see throughout East Africa. The other species of zebra I have seen on prior trips are the Grevy's Zebra in northern Kenya. Zebra's faces have lots of expression Zebra have this uncanny ability to turn their butts to you as soon as you pull out the camera. Be prepared to get a lot of these shots as you are learning how to quickly photograph their faces Zebra are plentiful, and frequent locations that might surprise you. This
