A famous traveller once said that the best advice he could give to anyone setting out on a trip abroad was very simple: “At the last minute, throw out half the clothes and pack twice as much money.”

For wildlife photographers, it would be much the same: “Throw out half the gear and pack twice as many cards.” (more…)

The camels in a Rudyard Kipling poem were called Can’t, Don’t, Shan’t and Won’t … and listening to our camels groaning and complaining in the cool Kenya dawn, I could understand why. On first acquaintance, camels are not attractive or willing animals.
But after a week in the dry bush of the Laikipia Masai country in Northern Kenya, trekking from camp to camp on camel-back, I think they are one of the great re-discoveries of tourism. A camel safari is a wonderful way to see the real Africa.

 waterbuck

Safari vehicles tend to be crowded. Eight people have 16 elbows, and every one of those elbows is going to get in the way when you are trying to photograph a Kenyan waterbuck in close-up.  So sensible equipment and a lot of practice are needed if you are going to grab the opportunity. (more…)

barbados turtle

Barbados is sanctuary to a healthy population of hawksbill and leatherback turtles.  Once endangered by over-fishing, these fascinating sociable creatures are now protected and it is possible to swim with them in the clear Caribbean waters and join experts as they feed them in a bay on the famously exclusive Platinum Coast.
Recently voted the second most popular attraction in Barbados, the Cool Runnings Catamaran Cruises sail to a secluded area where the turtles are an exciting draw for wildlife photographers.
