🇰🇪Why KENYA is the BEST and you SHOULD book your tickets IMMEDIATELY!🦏🦁🐘
1. YOU CAN SPOT THE BIG FIVE!
Kenya is easily one of Africa’s greatest wildlife-watching destinations, home as it is to the Big Five (African lion, African elephant, Cape buffalo, African leopard, and white/black rhinos).
2. WITNESS THE GREATEST MIGRATION ON EARTH!
From mid-August to October, more than a million wildebeest migrate from the Serengeti in neighboring Tanzania to Kenya’s Maasai Mara, accompanied by hundreds of thousands of Thomson’s gazelle, zebra, and eland.
3. IDEAL SAFARI EXPERIENCE!
You can catch an overnight flight from Heathrow you can transfer to a light aircraft next morning and be in the bush in time for brunch.
Such things are possible in Nairobi because Kenya’s safari industry is backed up by an efficient tourist infrastructure with a dazzling choice of camps and lodges to suit all budgets.
4. ENJOY THE BEACH AFTER AN AMAZING SAFARI!
Kenya’s geography means that it offers the perfect combination of fauna-and-flora spotting adventures in its dozens of mighty national parks, and opportunities for lying prostrate on white-sand Indian Ocean beaches.
5. FINALLY, SLEEP UNDER THE STARS!
Loisaba Lodge is set in a 61,000-acre reserve, and guests can experience the wilderness by night in private huts open to the skies a 20-minute drive from the main building.
Beds, which can be wheeled out into the open or taken inside if the weather turns, overlook either a watering hole or a river where there is every chance of catching sight or sound of the passing game.

When I am working on a commission painting there are several steps which are outlined in my contracts. These steps are detailed and the client is involved in each step along the way. There is a date for client approval of a rough sketch, final drawing, small comp painting and then the final painting. This way there are no surprises for either the client or myself. This also allows for small corrections to the project throughout the process so everyone is happy with the final project.
This Zebra will hang in a nice place in Zürich soon.
Did you know?
Every zebra has a unique pattern of stripes. And scientists can use the patterns like bar codes to identify individuals in a herd and keep track of them over time.
A loud knock on the door followed by a loud voice shouting “Lions!!” is not a bad way to start the morning.
It got us awake, out of bed, clothed and camera ready in the fastest time ever!! Chef had spotted lions across the river. This is what we had been waiting for!! We jumped into game viewer with the camera gear and made our way down the hill to the river- PH/ rangers (Louis and Renier), cam op (Pat), AC (Dylan), producer (Ryan) and I, all eagerly on the lookout!
We were so excited to spot the first brother behind some reeds.
After a few minutes we moved around to get closer.
The other brother got our adrenaline pumping when he appeared from behind a bush and ran into the reeds from only about 10ft away from us.
We followed them for a while until they got fed up with us being there.
What a great way to start a day! #photography#wildlife#wildlifephotography#lionsofinstagram#tracking#africawildlife
Our time so far in Tanzania has been nothing short of spectacular. From setting out on game drives in Tarangire National Park to trekking to the Empakai Crater in the Ngorongoro Conservation Area — we’ve had days filled with the most beautiful landscapes and gorgeous sightings of stunning wild animals. If you’d like to explore Tanzania just like us — get in touch 🦓
Earlier this month in Botswana, lucked out on the last day and squeezed in one last Safari drive before heading to the airport. Kenosi spotted this Cheetah in the bush, absolutely stunning animals, so elegant, honestly wanted to give it a hug but was advised against it. Visit @roarafrica@sanctuaryretreats

Agamas are diurnal, active during the day. They can tolerate higher temperatures than most reptiles, but when temperatures approach 38 °C (100 °F) they generally shelter in the shade. Males frequently threaten each other by nodding, weaving, and displaying their brightest colours to establish dominance. If that is insufficient, they lash their tails and threaten each other with open jaws. The jaws are very powerful, and older males commonly have damaged tails as souvenirs of past combat. Females may sometimes chase and fight one another, and hatchlings mimic the adults' behavior #jpmeyerphotography#mycanon#sigma#naturephotography#wildlifephotograpy#africawildlife#wildlife#thisisafrica

Rhino dehorning is seen as a temporary measure to prevent the killing of a Rhino for its horn by poachers. It is an ongoing process, as the horn regrows after removal. This is important for the public to understand why Rhino dehorning is done, it is important that we help spread awareness about the various conservation approaches to save a species from possible extinction.
Would love to hear your thoughts on how we can save these beautiful iconic giants.
