We were looking for a bit of inspiration today and came across a photo we took in Africa a few years back.
We bought a 500mm telescopic lens especially for that trip and hauled it all around the continent in search of wildlife. This was more than a toy, it was a real investment in our photographic hobby. … More Looking for Inspiration

In all honesty I hadn’t even heard of La Digue, when I booked a 3 day excursion to the remote Seychelles island.

Mozambique never really appealed to me, in all honesty I wasn’t really sure what it had to offer.
We had traveled to South Africa a number of times, as are lucky enough to have family who live just outside of Johannesburg.

Throughout these tripos we have been able to extensively explore South Africa, and move further afield to Namibia, Botswana and Zambia. … More Paradise in Mozambique
When I saw this week’s The Daily Post photo challenge – of Eye Spy it got me thinking of our 2009 trip to Southern Africa.
We were privileged enough to witness some of nature’s most beautiful and iconic creatures. Some, I have to admit we got to witness a bit too close for comfort, so close you could see into their eyes. … More Eye Spy – A Window into the Soul
An Experience that really took my breath away was when Megan and I visited the Namib Desert, in Namibia.

One of the most unique Wandering Memories I have ever had was in Botswana when we had the utter privilege of meeting a local bushman tribe.
After crossing the border from Namibia, we headed to the Ghanzi Bushcamp, run by a lovely South African lady whose introduction was calling Botswana beer the piss of Africa! Ha… We all took an available upgrade to traditional bush huts, which were made of straw, a simple wooden door and a couple of beds with the essential mosquito nets. These were very comfortable though … More A Traditional African Experience – The Bushman Tribe – Botswana
