A small group of rare puku antelope photographed from a small boat at the Chobe Riverfront in Botswana early September 2012. If you're ever in the area, definitively book a small boat with a private guide as it is a far superior experience than being on one of those big boats which you also see a lot.

One of my favourite images of last years trip to South Africa. Photographed at +Zimanga Private Game Reserve while being guided by +Hendri Venter. It took a while before we found this beautiful male cheetah called Kalahari but when we finally did, all the trouble had been worth it... Awesome experience!! :)

Ever since our first proper leopard sighting in Kruger National Park in 2010 we've been hoping for another sighting like that but unfortunately we weren't so lucky on our trips to Botswana, Namibia and the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park.

But this year, on what was only our first full day in the park, Kruger delivered again!! After a delicious lunch at the Cattle Baron in Skukuza Rest Camp we decided to take the S114 back to our chalet in Lower Sabie Rest Camp and this proved to be a great choice as this image shows. We finally got our iconic "leopard in a tree" image...

A giant kingfisher photographed on June 8th from the Lagoon Hide at +Zimanga Private Game Reserve. It was an amazing experience being able to get these kind of low angle shots... Had so much fun and learned a lot as well so thank you very much +Hendri Venter!!
