Zebras are social animals and live in small family groups that combine into large herds. even when grouped in a massive swath of other zebras, they remain close to their families. just like any other family, the stallion protects the family group from outside invaders especially the predators as well as the other stallions from different groups. the stallion has mating rights with the mares and if they produce male foals then that is more protection for the herd.

| masai mara | thomson gazelle

the thomson gazelle is a very fast and extremely agile antelope species that on a good day can outrun a cheetah, but during the first few hours of its life is probably the most vulnerable baby animal on the plain. this newborn was only a few minutes old when this photo was taken. there didn’t appear to be any predators in the immediate vicinity, but having witnessed a cheetah spotting one from an absolutely incredible distance one morning there was no telling how long it would remain safe.

Zambians are - in general - some of the nicest, kindest, friendliest and merriest people i've ever met around the world! when spending a lot of time with them -especially in the village - i usually end up with a muscle strain in my face from laughter & smiles.. 😊 (and i'm not speaking metaforically!) (not to mention the times when we see each other.. @taonga90 😁😘)

Catch of the day.

In one of the villages we visited in north western province, we came up with the idea to make the kids run up and down the road, so we can film them. they made an impromptu running contest of it (naturally) and the news travelled just as fast as the kids ran and - by popular demand - we had to do it in the next village as well.
it has proven to be a good way to gain popularity very fast with the children ( as well as the parents for making them tired..! and with dogs! 🐕)

Barred owlet. i've got a new little mate. she arrived with her chick over 2 weeks ago and seems to have taken a liking to the place. she's often foraging for insects to feed the chick and very busy teaching her the ropes - quite entertaining to watch! she's got used to my presence which has allowed me get some nice close up portriats of her. #bbcwildlifemagazine #bbcwildlifepotd #wildlifeowners #wildestafrica #youpic_wildlife #joysafaribay #wildographyandsafari #wildography #indianafricanwildlife #capturethewild #kruger #krugernationalpark #thisissouthafrica #lowl #barredowlet #africageo #wilderexperiences #africanwildlifephotography #africanwilderness #instawild #animalportraits #instawildlife #waowafrica #raw_africa #greaterkruger #amazingshots_africa #onlyafrica #photographicsafari

Throwback to a pile of lazy young wild dogs, right on the road. my first ever wild dogs, and these ones were so obliging as to be within touching distance pretty much! a bucket list item ticked off, but i'll always want to see them again!

| masai mara | topi

this is the newborn calf from my previous photo, who has now gained control of its legs and is already confident enough to be standing alone. he/she is barely half-an-hour old, but just a few minutes after this shot was taken was happily trotting alongside its parent as she made her way back to the relative safety of the herd.

After a hot day in the park nothing feels better than sinking into your camp chair and putting your feet up. the smell of camp fires burning and wood crackling fills the air. the heat of the day finally breaks as you sip on your ice cold drink. now the sunlights gone everyone starts to reminiscing about the days sightings. the night is still and the atmosphere fantastic. .

impala settling down for the night a familiar sight for anyone that’s stayed at the camps in pilanesberg.
a calming sight, i’m always found outside a tent watching the silent movie that is the game animals of manyane

| masai mara | topi

first in a mini-series featuring a few of the young animals we saw during our last safari in october, this young topi calf was taking its very first steps just a few minutes after being born. it was a real privilege to witness the tender moment when a mother begins the bonding process with its newborn baby. sadly, many don’t survive very long!

Stripping colour from a photo means you can really make the texture and detail stand out. you can often add more contrast allowing which lead to some very dramatic imagery.⁠

This is victoria falls at the end of dry season: practically it's just a huge fall now (if you are not careful when walking on the edge..) if i'd be slightly more fearless i would have done it myself, but my life instinct is strong.

Worth getting up early for... getting up before sunrise to catch the sunrise on the last day of the holiday made worthwhile by this pre-sunrise reflection of the crescent moon on a perfectly still infinity pool

the only editing i’ve done here is to sharpen it a little to better show the moon from an iphone photo, then smoothed it again after

Reposted from @charlielynam (@get_regrann ) - the feast. i was up before the lark to catch this huge male leopard with his kill, that we had spotted the previous evening. i gave up waiting after about 2 hours and returned later in the day. it was 1pm before he got the munchies and confidently ate his way through the impala with a group of vehicles gathered about 20-30m away. #bbcwildlifemagazine #wildlifeowners #wildography #wildestafrica #youpic_wildlife #joysafaribay #wildographyandsafari #wildography #indianafricanwildlife #capturethewild #kruger #krugernationalpark #thisissouthafrica #leopard #africageo #wilderexperiences #africanwildlifephotography #africanwilderness #instawild #bbcwildlife #animalportraits #instawildlife #bigcat #waowafrica #raw_africa #greaterkruger #amazingshots_africa #onlyafrica #bbcwildlifepotd #photographicsafari

'meat & greet' 🔥
having a bush bbq with the maasai tribe: we' ve been there, done that, and got the t-shirt. but in all honesty and all jokes aside, we felt incredibly honored to share a meal with them. because it is a big deal. but there was a slight catch. we were also invited to be present at the ritual sacrifice of the goat that would end up on our plates. of course, it is not pleasant to witness the killing of an animal. but the maasai do this with so much respect and even tenderness for the little animal, that it left us musing about how disconnected we've become with the meat we eat.
