Inspiring photography that captures the essence of the big game safari experience. Sometimes it’s the glare of a short-tempered lion, or the flight of a steenbok as it springs weightlessly from the ground in a mad dash to find cover. Perhaps it’s the swoosh of of an elephant’s bristly tail against its leathery skin, or the calcified knobs decorating the face of an aged giraffe. The unpredictable glint in a leopard’s eye, the bounding playfulness of the endangered wild dog, the bellow of a buffalo, or the ripples left behind by a hippo as it dips under the surface of the water.
Whatever it is that imprints on your memory after a safari, it is a vision of Africa. Our talented photographers work to capture those moments in one image, as a still copy of an encounter with nature. This edition of the Week in Pictures is a celebration of safari memories, captured in black and white, tinted with nostalgia, and finished with artistic excellence. Enjoy this collaboration from our outstanding camps and lodges in the Kruger Park and Botswana.
