  1. As I have mentioned in numerous previous posts over the years, the Ultimate Big 5 Safari has proven to be the very best introduction to African wildlife for photographers that you can get. Our most recent edition (the 6th one) underlined this with some amazing photo opportunities presenting themselves for our guests. The fact that our 2017 edition is already 50% sold before we even left for the 2016 edition simply reinforces this. It’s one heck of a photo safari. Everybody loves it. The 2016 Edition was our largest in terms of number so far. We hosted 10 guests, of which 5 were rep

    Ultimate Big 5 Safari 2016

    We arrived yesterday and are having a total blast here at the revitalised Little Bush Camp in Sabi Sabi. On our first drive we came across the huge male leopard Maxabeni who was lying in the shade of some palm trees. He's a very chilled out cat and we got really close to him to make some great shots. He's got damage on his nose from a fight he had with another leopard a few weeks ago. I'll update this thread with more shots as we go and hopefully some of the other Safarians will also chip in with some of their contributions @Chris Wahl @Greg Drawbaugh @Ann @fredazinge
  4. Franscois does a masterful job of placing the new for 2016 Photo Rig Land Rover into position for a leopard sighting. Fred, Ann and Chris were "armed" and ready for the action to start.

    (not) Maxebeni

    Maxebeni is the dominant male leopard at Sabi Sabi. He took over from the 1-eyed Sandriver male a couple of years ago and has proven to be quite a formidable cat. You can see a fresh battle wound on his left shoulder.

    White Rhinos (and no black one)

    Usually I am quite relaxed in the bush and I even have some stupid trust in the various cats but when Elephants and Rhinos are present I am rather attentive and prefer a little safety distance ... The mere mass of these animals is a clear indication that there aren't a lot of options when they get angry ... Knowing how fast they are doesn't help at all ... What actually helps with Rhinos is to know that they have very poor eyesight and if you are a few metres away from them they certainly don't see you any more. This allows for getting out of the car (not on the side of the Rhino o
  8. Although we spent a lot of time in the Terrapin Hide at Madikwe we also did a couple of game drives and during one of them we had really nice light. We were lucky enough to meet two cheetahs (brothers) who hang around together after a meal they had somewhere else ... at least this is what i assume if I look at the reddish appearance of his fur ... Well it is a rather safe assumption ... With both images I am yet undecided whether I give them a tight "portrait crop" or whether I go with the version that leave them more space to "breathe" ... I posted both versions of each and all co

    Buffalo - Colour

    All below images were taken at Sabi Sabi where the drought really pushed the buffalos (and most of the other herbivores) to their limit. I hope I am not over the top with the processing, if yes please let me know ... and I am also looking forward to your opinions regarding what works better for you ... colour or b/w Here is the post with b/w versions of below images ...

    Some of the less spectacular birds

    Here are some images of the not so spectacular birds that live in the bush. The only exception is probably #4 (see below). These aren't the most brilliant images but these birds often where around when there was not much else to photograph so I felt that it is only fair to present them I am not really sure whether I got all the names right so please correct me if I did it wrong ... Cheers Chris #1 The Grebe of the Madikwe waterhole ... whenever we waited for mammals or the kingfisher couple it got our attention #2 The southe

    Cape Weaver

    Like two yeary ago I started the whole Safari business with some cape weaver stalking at Tladi Lodge in Johanesburg. I really like these birds and considering that the males build their nests just to have them destroyed again by the females is sort of ... well ... Actually the following images (with one exception) are taken in the morning before we left for a visit to a small reserve not far from the lodge. When we came back in the afternoon, the nest was history and the boy was already busy building a new one on a different twig. When we came back to Tladi Lodge one week later he

    Trees Of Africa

    Here are some images of trees I photographed on our most recent safari. There was a storm threatening during one of our drives. It looked very ominous and we heard lots of thunder, but alas the rains didn't come as expected. Not sure what kind of tree this is but it was huge. Look what's standing underneath its lowest branches. Here's a shot I am really happy with. Shot on the evening of "elephant dung smoking" (a topic I will leave open for the Safarians to post photos of!) this shows how barren things have become in s

    Low angle, baby rhino

    Early on in the safari we came across a white rhino with a youngster (actually we saw several of these). Our ranger suggested that we might be able to get a good low angle shot of the baby if we got off the vehicle on the opposite side and shot through the undercarriage. This is one of the shots I got that I am quite happy with - the rest saw quite a bit of grass in the way. Shooting with the tilting LCD screen of the Olympus E-M1 in this situation saved me from having to lie down in the grass and risk getting myself bitten by ticks. Also, this advantage of not having to lie down in the dirt t

    Standing Ground

    Standing his ground. This image shows the good bokeh of the Olympus 50-200mm f/2.8-3.5 SWD. I would love to get my hands on the Olympus 90-250mm f/2.8 for next year's safari. I think that lens on an E-M1 would rock. Be sure to click for the larger version.
