With a conservation mission to restore the Kalahari Desert to itself, the land at Tswalu is being converted from cattle farms to a place teeming with wildlife. And, Tswalu delivered exceptional wildlife moments as if they were safari norm, instead of the exception. But the remarkable did not stop at wildlife sightings, but extended to the food, nothing is too much service, and range of activities.
This is my number 1 safari photo tip. Switch to back button autofocus. I only recently discovered this customized camera setting, but I wish I had enabled this function when I first started photographing wildlife on safari.
Upon arrival at Rocktail Camp, the general manager detailed all the available activities – snorkeling, nature walks, scuba diving, and turtle drives to see loggerheads and leatherbacks laying eggs along the stretch of protected South African coastline in KwaZulu Natal. This is why we were here. My previous attempt to see turtles the year before was a comedy of errors, but this time I was feeling lucky.
I have written about Phinda Private Game Reserve extensively on my blog because it is one of my go to destinations in South Africa. The game viewing is excellent, the guiding is superb, and being an & Beyond property, the service is warm and friendly
I tried to whittle this down to fifteen favorite wildlife images or special moments, but sixteen was the best that I could muster.
