As if one cat sighting wasn’t enough we also caught sight of a cheetah on our game drive. This was our 4th visit to Pilanesberg National Park and our first cheetah sighting there. The next day we followed this up with a further cheetah sighting. Our guide told us this was the first time he had seen any for four months. It made me think it is interesting your perception of what wildlife is prolific or not at a certain place. For example in previous visits we’ve seen heaps of elephant, but on this trip we saw one bull elephant and a small breeding herd. This could cause you to think from this visit alone that that there aren’t many elephants, but cheetah sightings are common... #cheetah #cheetahs #bigcats #bigcatsofinstagram #catsofinstagram #pilanesberg #pilanesbergnationalpark #pilanesberg_ #southafrica #visitsouthafrica #discoversouthafrica #meetsouthafrica #exploresouthafrica #safari #africansafari #africa #gamedrive #shots_of_animals #animal_captures #africanamazing #onlyafrica #african_portraits #animalplanet #wildlifephotography #africanwildlife #africananimals #africanimals #wildafrica #wildestafrica #exploremore

Lalibela is one of Ethiopia's most iconic sites. It was one of the ancient capitals with rock hewn churches. It's always been a #religiousplace and now a popular tourist and pilgrimage site. Another attraction is a very large Saturday Market. This is one of the merchants from that market. The other week I had an opportunity to travel through Ethiopia and visit Lalibela and the market with the ground work handled by @grandholidaysethiopiatours #Lalibela #Ethiopia #canon #canonphotography #canon_photos #canonafrica #africanamazing #onlyafrica #amazingafrica #kings_third_age #spencer_travel_feature #bestcaptureglobal #natgeohumanity #travelethiopia #africanadventure #africageophoto #africageo #wu_africa #africanphotography #travelafrica #lovesafrica #africageographic #igs_africa #african_portraits #travelblog #traveltheworld #cool_pointy_things #travelgram #postcardsfromtheworld

Up Close and Personal. This photo is very special to me which is probably why it has taken me so long to share it! I had dreamt about this scene playing out for months before the opportunity came around. I knew exactly how I wanted to capture it. Thank you so much to everyone who purchased and praised my 2019 calendar - your support really does mean the world to me! 🌍 This is probably the photo I connect with the most from the calendar - if you have received yours already which month is your favourite??? #elephant #safari #photooftheday #wildlife #wildlife_perfection #wildlifephotography #naturephotography #africageophoto #naturelovers #wildlifeofinstagram #majestic_wildlife_ #global4nature #earthcapture #animal_captures #ig_masterpiece #viewbug #wildlifeaddicts #splendid_animals #animals_in_world #igscwildlife #splendid_animals #animalelite #animal_sultans #africanimals #wu_africa   #africanature #excellent_nature #inspirenaturenow #african_portraits #animalonplanet

Family portrait, South Madagascar. I often feature Madagascar in my Gallery because it’s such an incredible country that I’m addicted to it and visit it most years 😊 On this trip alone, I had 12 rivers to cross. Floating platforms (‘bacs’) are used to get 4x4s (and people) across but our last bac was broken. Whilst waiting for it to be fixed, I ended up with 3 hours to spare in a tiny village, in the middle of nowhere. People were thrilled to see a ‘vaza’ (white skin) and as I speak fluent French it was easy to strike conversations. This is my favourite portrait from this unexpected delay – a real blessing in disguise 😊 #ilerouge #madagascar #africatrip #travelandlife #nature_shots #madagascartravel #everydaymadagascar #portraits #travelawesome #visualwanderlust #african_portraits #neverstopexploring #roamtheplanet #amazing #nature #theglobewanderer #mustdotravel #travelgram #welltravelled #amazindestinations #travelinspiration #borntotravel #vacationwolf #TLPicks #everydaymadagascar

Two beautiful #whiterhinoceros are eating grass, expecially short grass, its favourite. They have an elongated head and two horns on the snout, with a mouth that is square and wide...

Karitetua appeared one day from the stream. She had been collecting water with the other women, a tattered yellow water container was balanced on her head as she negotiated the white dust path that had been cut between rocks and thorn covered shrubs. As she snakes along the path I looked on, I had seen the women walk this path many times. Each woman that accompanied her Had been faces I had known for years but the addition of this new face threw me a little. She walked & talked to the others as if she had been in the village for years, she brushed her hand over the children’s heads with concern when they stopped to pull a thorn from their feet, she looked like she had been ingrained in this village for years. As I watched further I found myself mesmerised by her eyes. Round & as white as the dusty path she walked on, there was an intensity that I had not seen before. As the women passed me & the always amassed group of children that were my tail, I greeted each woman as I had not seen them for two weeks. My greeting was returned in earnest, a number of questions followed of where I had been & how long I was staying, but then came Karitetua. She was shy, we had not seen each other before but she knew of me, she saw my camera & asked if I could take her picture. Right there & then I snapped a shot, she smiled & kept on walking. That was four years ago, Karitetua is still in the village. She has grown, she has married & now has a child. I had not seen her before as she had just arrived in that period of my absence after being married. Each time I return I take images of all the women, the photos I bring document their life & growth. Each image I take of Karitetua I still look at her eyes. I often see my reflection in her pupils as they are so reflective & round, it’s a good indication if my focus is on point. This is not the best image I have of her, those stay locked away till the day I finally get my act together & decide its time to share the best of my Himba images.

Night has Arrived. When the sun goes away, danger comes out to play. While having a sundowner at an elevated location one night, I spotted this Oryx galloping full tilt across the desert. The feeling of speed and intention was wonderfully captured by the following dust trail. I'm not sure what spooked it, but it was beautiful watching the elegant creature pass by. .
