An unusual photographic opportunity of Plains Zebra (Equus burchelli) in courtship. The Zebra is the product of some 60 million years of evolution and none of that would have happened without a little copulation here and there. The Burchell's Zebra forms into single-male harem groups which are not necessarily territorial, and being nomadic in nature. Harem females maintain a dominance hierarchy and usually continue to associate with the harem ...

You just have to love those elephants in the Mana Pools area! They are so innovative. Here a bull elephant (Loxodonta africana) is shaking the trunk of the tree hope of a fall of Acacia albida (ren...

We sat quietly on a log, under the shade of a huge fig tree, sharing space with four young bull elephants (Loxodonta africana) feasting on the fruit droppings off the tree. Each beast, in succession, from largest to smallest, took turns in exerting their dominance with mock charges, flaring their ears, but stopping just short, one by one. After each ‘charge’ the smaller beasts went to the larger animal and mingled trunks, as if seeking approval for warding off the foe. Then they settled down and foraged in the shade, happily sharing their space, in a way accepting us into their brotherhood, but just for the moment.

This lion (Panthera leo) was part of a pride resting up for the day, perhaps before the next hunt. It seems this lion was a little curious about its audience and moved forward to settle on a termite mound, where he posed for photographers a few meters away. After a little bit of yawning and showing off its teeth, the lion settled in to watching its observers.

The photographer came across this lion (Panthera leo) early one morning at the scene of another buffalo kill, which by all accounts took place the previous evening. The rest of the pride were resting after their feast, while this lady jealously kept guard over the carcass. Vultures and hyena were already on the scent of the kill. That facial hair appears messed from gorging in the cavity of the buffalo’s body.
