❤❤❤ to the people of Zimbabwe. Uncle Eddie and his wife Stella (pictured ) reminded me of what it is like to live with what is available. I grew up in a home that had every fruit and vegetable growing in every corner, because mum knew this was the smartest thing to do. And you know what, damn right it was. We had an abundance. Everything was fresh, available and organic. So, our culture, values and purpose in life, are exactly the same. We live for the 🌏 and the 🌏 gives us what we need. . . . . . #sustainability #nature #natural #soul #culture #humanity #love #zimbathway #villagelife #smiles #happiness

Hwange National Park in Zimbabwe presented us with so many wonderful opportunities and photographic surprises. _____ After being treated to the two cheetah brothers our very first afternoon, we came upon a mother cheetah, Cindy, and her 12 month old cub in the most gorgeous early morning light (cub pictured here ). She's the sister of the male I shared in my feed two days ago and they are the cubs of one of the famous Bomani Boys. ____ Having never been close to cheetahs before, I couldn't believe our luck two days in a row! They were literally right next to the vehicle! They proceeded to pose together, climb onto trees, run, and play. The photographic opportunities were endless. ____ Given the moving grass, I opted for manual focus to ensure the images I captured were tack sharp and bumped my ISO up to ensure I had a fast enough shutter speed for the long lens I was using. I strove to demonstrate how beautifully they camouflage amongst the grass and also use the blades to frame their faces. ____ Cindy's story speaks to the importance of anti-poaching patrols. When she was a young cheetah, she was caught in a snare. Fortunately, rangers found her and called in a vet. The vet removed the wire snare and disinfected the area. She has now gone on to have her own cubs. While it's believed that one of her cubs was lost to hyenas, it's wonderful to see that her remaining cub is flourishing. ___ Cubs stay with their mums until 18 months and then strike out on their own. ___ Nikon D850 | 500mm| f 5.6 | 1/1000 sec | ISO 800 ____ #cheetah #wildgeography #animallovers #africanamazing #picoftheday #instanimal #instagood #nature_brilliance #splendid_animals #natgeo #natgeowild #ourdailyplanet #capturethemoment #capturethewild #zimbathway #travelafrica #safari #africa #animalkingdom #animalelite #wildlifeart #featured_wildlife #bestnatureshot #majestic_wildlife #wildlifeonearth #wildlifeplanet #earthcapture #shots_of_animals #teamkaptainkenny #wildlife_vision

What a magnificent creature! via @epic7travel ・・・ I’m excited to share this image from Zimbabwe. How gorgeous is this elephant smelling us in the hide. I loved being able to closely examine their gorgeous skin, eyes, tusks& toenails. This is a 52mm equivalent lens shot from a hidden and protected hide. ___ I thought this image a fitting one to share to thank all the people who have reached out and helped this past week. I got to meet @jay_k_zed this past weekend ( awesome wildlife photog ), @laurenepbath @therichcoach @georgiarickard have provided valuable insights, and @volkexander1 is joining me to scout for my 2020 tours! _________ After returning from the gorgeous cheetah brothers, I glimpsed an amazing black & white photo of elephants' feet, trunks and water from a ground level perspective. I turned to Lauren and said "Where is THAT?!" She excitedly replied with a huge grin, "this is a surprise I have for you all. Our lodge has an elephant hide!" ___ "WHAT?! I didn't know that anything like this existed anywhere in the world, much less at the place we are staying" It's always been a dream of mine to be able to capture up close perspectives of elephants from a vantage point you don't usually see, but didn't know satisfying my dream was even possible. ___ Entering into the hide with a wide angle & zoom set up + my phone capturing video + timelapse, I proceeded to take 1000 pictures in 2 hours, with a permagrin the ENTIRE time. Stay tuned as I have LOTS to share, including an incident that had me laughing so hard I cried, followed by me giving myself an unintentional nasal lavage when Lauren made me laugh again. Hands down, one of the funniest moments of my life. ___ #elephant #wildgeography #animallovers #africanamazing #picoftheday #instanimal #instagood #nature_brilliance #splendid_animals #natgeo #natgeowild #ourdailyplanet #capturethemoment #capturethewild #zimbathway #travelafrica #safari #africa #animalkingdom #animalelite #wildlifeart #featured_wildlife #bestnatureshot #majestic_wildlife #wildlifeonearth #wildlifeplanet #earthcapture #shots_of_animals #teamkaptainkenny #wildlife_vision

Meet Bones. Bones lives at Wild Is Life. A true animal sanctuary on the outskirts of Harare. The animals are here because they have been orphaned in the wild and this is one of the only ways to ensure their survival. The animals are either rehabilitated for release into the wild or housed for life if not eligible to be released (ie it would not be safe for them to go into the wild ). Bones arrived here at just a few days old and his eyes were still closed and chances of survival were slim. Over a decade later, he truly rules the roost and his roars at dusk are utterly terrifying to say the least. He certainly lets you know who’s boss! I was really quite nervous taking this pic! . . . . . . #wildislife #wildlifeconservation #wildlifephoto #wildlifeconservation #africa #zimbabwe #natgeotravel #planetearth #sustainabletravel #zimbathway #instajetset 🌸 #socialjetset 🌸 #conservation #kingofthejungle #earthofficial #nikon #nikond5300 #roamtheplanet #lonelyplanet #luxurytravel #luxuryhotels #ourlonelyplanet #bbcearth #davidattenborough #roamtheplanet #neverstopexploring

Well Instagram, you know I always save my favorites and ... this is actually my favorite shot that I took in Zimbabwe. I know that I have pretty unusual tastes with my photography but often you guys surprise me and agree on my random choices. Haha. So, what do I love about this? Well, I took it in the elephant hide in Hwange National Park and that hide is super challenging! There’s a lot happening and you’re so close and the elephants are all over the place 🐘🐘 and it’s hard to keep your cool! 😩😩😩 I had two stints in the hide, the first one was 2 hours and the second was 3 hours. I was down my favorite lens, my 40-150 f2.8, and I was struggling to get anything I loved or anything I thought was unique. It was the middle of the day both times and the light was bright and uninteresting. I took this photo 2 1/2 hours into my second stint in the hide, and here are the things that turned around for me ... 1 ) I was finally able to keep my shit together enough to think about my compositions 2 ) One of my tour guests, @jubileescarlett , lent me his 40-150 3 ) I had started to use the foreground grass, the top of the hide and anything I could think of to create blur and interest and, 4 ) I timed it all perfectly with the action, the bokeh and the water. It might have taken me 2,000 shots and 4 1/2 hours but I nailed it. 😂😂 I hope you like it too? @TourismZimbabweOfficial #AWorldOfWonders #VisitZimbabwe #ResponsibleTravel #SustainableTravel #ZimBathWay #AWorldOfWonders #VisitZimbabwe #ImveloSafariLodges #HwangeNationalPark #ZimParks #Elephant #OlympusInspired #Traveller_Au #GirlsLoveTravel #ASTW #EverydayAfrica #ExploreAfrica #TravelAfrica #VisitAfrica #Travel_Captures

Cindy Cat! This was such a highlight for me, coming across this gorgeous girl and her young cub in Hwange National Park. Experts estimate that fewer than 7,000 wild cheetah are left in the world, and seeing one is super special. I particularly like Cindy’s story because she is a survivor, having been trapped in a wire snare when she was younger but luckily being darted and mended. Humans don’t interfere with the wildlife in Zimbabwe unless there is a man-made injury to an endangered animal. Cindy then went on to have her own cubs and, although only one survived, she is thriving! Group 1 were fortunate enough to have two lengthy encounters with the duo and we fell in love.

Far away, on the distant shores of Lake Kariba, lies a magical place called Bumi Hills. Here you will find one of the most surreal landscapes in the world, a stretch of lake filled with dead trees. Not a lot of people know this, but Lake Kariba is a man made lake, and the largest (by volume ) in the world. It was built under the Rhodesian government, before Zimbabwe gained their independence, and it was built by flooding what was once a lush valley. Both of my groups were in love with this place and insisted on shooting sunrise here... Every. Single. Morning. That’s two groups x three sunrises. To say that I’ve just about got every angle possible would be an understatement. To shoot in this place we were guarded at gunpoint by our protective guide Ntando, in case of hippo’s or predators coming across us. 🐆🦁😱 @TourismZimbabweOfficial #AWorldOfWonders #VisitZimbabwe #BumiHills #AfricanBushCamps #LakeKariba #BumiHillsFoundation #Zimbabwe #ZimBathWay #DeadTrees #WildlifePlanet #AfricanAnimals #OlympusInspired #WildlifeConservation #Traveller_Au #GirlsLoveTravel #ASTW #EverydayAfrica #ExploreAfrica #WildlifeWarrior #Sunrise_Pics #SunriseLover #TravelAfrica #VisitAfrica 📷: @laurenepbath Deseja viajar para mais de 30 países quase de graça? .

I recently met this wee angel, Kupa. Kupa and her family live in an area on the outskirts of Harare, Zimbabwe called Seke Rural.  Life is pretty tough going in these parts. I had the privilege to spend a day with Kupa and her family to understand how they live each day and “make a plan”. Their positive attitude to life and generosity of everything they have is truly inspiring.  Indebted to @laurenepbath for the chance to spend time with her extended family.  This little one took my heart straight away and did not let go of my hand most of the day (more on that in my stories to follow later ). 💖 . . . . . . #zimbathway #zimbabwe #harare #nikon #nikond5300 #africa #africanadventure #igerszimbabwe #adventuretravel #natgeotravel #natgeo #instajetset 🌸 #socialjetset 🌸 #liveofftheland #igersafrica #makeaplan #sacredmemories #travelmore

As we were heading to Hwange National Park in Zimbabwe aboard the open air Elephant Express train, our guides aboard heard there were cheetahs in our concession. ___ Wanting to maximize our time to find and see them since sunset was approaching, we quickly disembarked and unanimously and unequivocally said to our guide @teamvusa "let's go find cheetahs" rather than heading to the lodge to freshen up, drop our bags, etc. We were on a mission to make the most of this opportunity! ___ We found the two brothers lounging in the grass and then they jumped up on trees to pose. I loved how he appeared as if he were about to pounce. I've only seen leopards on trees before, never a cheetah, so this was quite a treat to start our safari off like this! And I’d never had them so close either! ___ Little did we know, we would get treated to mum and cub in amazing light lounging next to the vehicle the next morning!! Stay tuned for those! ___ #cheetah #wildgeography #animallovers #africanamazing #picoftheday #instanimal #instagood #nature_brilliance #splendid_animals #natgeo #natgeowild #ourdailyplanet #capturethemoment #capturethewild #zimbathway #travelafrica #safari #africa #bigcatswildlife #animalkingdom #animalelite #wildlifeart #featured_wildlife #bestnatureshot #majestic_wildlife #wildlifeonearth #wildlifeplanet #earthcapture #shots_of_animals #teamkaptainkenny

I just thought you guys would appreciate a shot of two male lions affectionately nuzzling heads! Argh, so cute!! We spotted these guys in Hwange National Park and ended up following them all the way to the train tracks and over to the Bomani Concession. At one point they were only a meter away from our safari vehicle! The thing that I love about safari is that you literally never know what you’re going to get. You head out, filled with hope, and you might see cheetah, you might see lion or you might have an ellie day 🐘. But regardless of what you find, it’s always magical. 💫🦁💛 @TourismZimbabweOfficial #AWorldOfWonders #VisitZimbabwe #ImveloSafariLodges #Hwange #Reflection #HwangeNationalPark #ZimParks #Zimbabwe #ZimBathWay #WildlifePlanet #AfricanAnimals #OlympusInspired #WildlifeConservation #Traveller_Au #GirlsLoveTravel #ASTW #EverydayAfrica #ExploreAfrica #WildlifeWarrior #Sunrise_Pics #SunriseLover #TravelAfrica #VisitAfrica #Lion #LionLove #AnimalKingdom #Travel_Captures #CamelthornLodge

This adorable little elephant is Coco. She is one of the youngest orphans at Zimbabwe Elephant Nursery in Harare. With this image, I wanted to demonstrate the relationship between Coco and Moyo (the trunk you see ). Moyo has provided "light" for all the "darkness" that Coco has experienced. ___ Sadly, Coco is still traumatized after seeing her mother hit by a bus and butchered for bush meat last year. ___ Fortunately, Moyo dotes on Coco and Unity, the two youngest elephants. In addition to the handlers' and Moyo’s constant care and contact, the other elephants, Jack, Marcy and Kora all provide moral support. ___ Have you had a chance to check out my Wild is Life blog post (LINK IN BIO ) for more pics of Coco and Moyo bottle feeding as well as adorable Limpopo? ___ Stay tuned for cheetahs, elephants from the hide and lions in the next series from Zimbabwe! ___ #elephant #naturephotography #bestnatureshots #wildlife #wildanimals #wildlife_inspired #babyanimals #africa #amazing_shots #ourmoodydays #lensbible #conservation #teamkaptainkenny #wildlifephotography #racingextinction #earthcapture #wildlifephotography #wildlifeaddicts #animalelite #wildgeography #splendid_animals #yourshotphotographer #wildlife_seekers #natgeowild #exclusive_wildlife #earthcapture #zimbathway #visitzimbabwe

Now THIS was an interesting sunset! The best of both tours put together and predicted by me! Who knew, eight years of photography have finally allowed me to predict nice light! 😳 We were in Hwange National Park, which was due to close at 6PM, and I saw the clouds lining up nicely and a gap on the horizon so I asked our guide to zip us over to the Bomani Concession, where we can stay as late as we want. We shot this with gin and tonics in hand! 🍹😂 I’ve got a great story that’s just gone live on the Bumi Hills Foundation and when I decided to run tours in Zimbabwe, and I also have a link in my bio still about responsible travel. It’s a hot topic right now. ❤️ @TourismZimbabweOfficial #AWorldOfWonders #VisitZimbabwe #ImveloSafariLodges #Hwange #BomaniLodge #HwangeNationalPark #ZimParks #Zimbabwe #ZimBathWay #WildlifePlanet #OlympusInspired #WildlifeConservation #Traveller_Au #GirlsLoveTravel #ASTW #EverydayAfrica #ExploreAfrica #WildlifeWarrior #TravelAfrica #VisitAfrica #AnimalKingdom #Travel_Captures #CamelthornLodge #NatGeoAfrica #Sunset_Lovers #Sunset #AfricanSunsets #🌞 #YourShotPhotographer

One of my absolute fave things about Africa was seeing the elephants!! We were lucky enough to see small ellies, big ellies, curious ellies, shy ellies and even ones that trumpeted at us! 😂 Now my favourite animal... these creatures are so majestic. They are humble and quite slow creatures (so long as they are not angry ) yet they are so powerful and could crush you in a second if they wanted. So utterly fascinated by these beings ✨ . . . . . #savetheelephants #bumihills #africanelephant #babyelephant #thebig5 #travelafrica #zimbathway #zimbabwe #zimbabwetourism #safari #zimbabwesafari #dametraveller #mint_shotz #zimbabwetourism #africatravel #natgeo #zimbabwe #africa #canon #visitzimbabwe #exploringafrica #exploreafrica #naturelovers

[Please weigh in, I’d love your opinion ❤️] I have a really interesting topic that I want to bring up today, for those that are interested? I want to talk about responsible travel! This is something that I’ve been thinking about a lot lately, especially with my tours in Zimbabwe and the fact that I micromanaged every aspect of organisation to ensure my groups were traveling well. I’m also working with Kathmandu to promote their take on the topic, a new documentary series that you can check out in my Instagram bio this week. Basically, it’s about travelers actually considering their impact on the places they visit, with an intention to have a more authentic experience. It’s a big topic, and one that all travelers really should know more about. So check out the series, and let me know in the comments what your opinion is of responsible travel? Is the way that you travel helpful or harmful? For me, I always want to support local businesses and local people when I travel, and I’m very conscious of spreading the money around to well researched operators. This shot was taken in Hwange National Park, a destination I picked because I know the importance of tourism dollars in this part of the world. I supported Imvelo Safari Lodges, because of the work they do with the local communities and the jobs they offer to local people. How else can we let our travel intentions match our actions? @KathmanduGear #HelpfulOrHarmful #ResponsibleTravel #SustainableTravel #ZimBathWay #AWorldOfWonders #VisitZimbabwe #ImveloSafariLodges #HwangeNationalPark #ZimParks #Elephant

Ahh, one of my favourite places on earth! This is the view from Gorges Lodge on the Zambezi River, and a very challenging view for all of my Tour Guests to practice their photography! Why challenging? Because of the very dark gorge walls and the very bright sky! We had a couple of landscape shooting sessions here, talking about dynamic range and practicing with filters and different compositions. I ended up in the bushes, as always, shooting through some golden foreground and much preferred this take. When I’m not shooting here, I’m drinking copious amounts of gin and tonic and enjoying the incredible view. @TourismZimbabweOfficial #AWorldOfWonders #VisitZimbabwe #ZimBathWay #OlympusInspired #VictoriaFalls #BatokaGorge #ZambeziRiver #Traveller_Au #GirlsLoveTravel #ASTW #EverydayAfrica #ExploreAfrica #TravelAfrica #VisitAfrica #VicFalls #Zimbabwe #ZambeziRiver #ZimParks #Travel_Captures #ImveloSafariLodges #GorgesLodge #Sunrise_Lovers #Sunrise

Take me back to Bumi! Bumi Hills and @bumihillsfoundation is one of the most special places I’ve ever been. On the banks of Lake Kariba in the west of Zimbabwe is where you’ll find these amazing beasts roaming at sunset. The Bumi Hills Foundation is committed to protecting the wildlife and wilderness of this ecologically important region of Zimbabwe.

How does one capture one of the seven wonders of the natural world in a photograph? If you do a google image search of the Victoria Falls you’ll be hard pressed to see anything truly stunning there. And the reason is, it’s impossible to capture the glory of this place in a single, still image. I was lucky enough to have four attempts at shooting this place, twice on each tour I ran. And still ... I don’t think I did it justice. You would think that returning back to this place again and again would lessen its impressiveness but actually the opposite is true. On this, my last visit, I was actually tearing up at the beauty. (Again! 😩 ) To have something so powerful and beautiful and raw and real on our planet, in a place that doesn’t receive enough visitors, and in a place with very little man-made infrastructure, is special. Even if Zimbabwe has never been on your radar before, the Victoria Falls is a sight that you must see before you die. This is a mere hint of a glimpse of it. ❤️ @TourismZimbabweOfficial #AWorldOfWonders #VisitZimbabwe #ZimBathWay #OlympusInspired #VictoriaFalls #SevenWondersOfTheWorld #Traveller_Au #GirlsLoveTravel #ASTW #EverydayAfrica #ExploreAfrica #TravelAfrica #VisitAfrica #Rainbow #VicFalls #Zimbabwe #ZambeziRiver #ZimParks #Travel_Captures #Rainbow #🌈

As some of you know, I was recently in Africa (more stories to follow on that ) and this is the first of the photos to be properly edited (and edited by the amazing @laurenepbath no less! ), but it’s my pic! We were in the most incredible place - an elephant hide surrounded by up to about 100 elephants just metres away - what an experience we had in Zimbabwe at Camelthorn Lodge in Hwange National Park. . . . . . . #elephants #africa #travelafrica #zimbabwe #africanadventure #hwangenationalpark #hwange #luxurytravel #luxuryresorts #zimbathway #socialjetset 🌸 #instajetset 🌸 #imvelosafarilodges #wildlifeconservation #wildlifephotography #nikon #nikond5300 #natgeotravel #lovemyjob #lovetravel #adventuretravel #camelthornlodge #camelthorntrees #endangeredspecies #beautifulplanet #planetearth #wildlifephotography

Every time I look at this photo I think there’s a cursor over the lion’s eye. Look closer though ... it’s actually the reflection of our safari vehicle, that’s how close we were! I haven’t mentioned this yet, but I was actually one lens down for both of my back to back Zim tours. My favorite lens, and most versatile for safari!! (40-150 f2.8 Olympus with an equivalent focal length of 80-300 ). I broke it as soon as I arrived and the replacement didn’t clear customs in time for tour 2. Rather than spit the dummy I decided to look at it as a creative challenge and you’ll note that all of my images are either super zoomed from my equivalent 600mm prime lens, or super wide (for wildlife ) at 24-80. I really, really enjoyed seeing what I could do in challenging situations without my go-to lens, and I hope you like what I came back with? Special thanks to our guide Vusa from Imvelo Safari Lodges for his excellent work finding the cats for us, tour 1 was jam packed with lion and cheetah. @TourismZimbabweOfficial #AWorldOfWonders #VisitZimbabwe #ImveloSafariLodges #Hwange #Reflection #HwangeNationalPark #ZimParks #Zimbabwe #ZimBathWay #WildlifePlanet #AfricanAnimals #OlympusInspired #WildlifeConservation #Traveller_Au #GirlsLoveTravel #ASTW #EverydayAfrica #ExploreAfrica #WildlifeWarrior #Sunrise_Pics #SunriseLover #TravelAfrica #VisitAfrica #Lion #LionLove #AnimalKingdom #Travel_Captures #CamelthornLodge

How cute are giraffes knees? This is typical giraffe posture when it comes to giraffe drinking water where their front legs are splayed . When they have to rise from this position they have to get down on their front knees, spread their back legs, rise the hindquarters and then straighten back legs. Because this requires slow orchestrated movements they become vulnerable to predators so quite often they sleep standing up! These two giraffes were my first sighting of an African wild animal. We caught sight of them on the @theelephantexpress on our way to @imvelosafarilodgeszim and I’m grateful our driver slowed so we could photograph them. . . . #africa #african #exploringafrica #africansafaris #exploreafrica #travelafrica #travellingourglobe #visitafrica #zimbabwe #tourismzimbabwe #zimbathway #animalportrait #wildlife #wildlifeconservation #wildlifephotography #endangeredanimals #endangeredspecies #giraffe #giraffelove #giraffes #animalkingdom #incredibleafrica #natgeo #nationalgeographic #natgeo_africa #everydayafrica #sony #sonya7rii #sonyalpha

Far away, on the distant shores of Lake Kariba, lies a magical place called Bumi Hills. Here you will find one of the most surreal landscapes in the world, a stretch of lake filled with dead trees. Not a lot of people know this, but Lake Kariba is a man made lake, and the largest (by volume ) in the world. It was built under the Rhodesian government, before Zimbabwe gained their independence, and it was built by flooding what was once a lush valley. Both of my groups were in love with this place and insisted on shooting sunrise here... Every. Single. Morning. That’s two groups x three sunrises. To say that I’ve just about got every angle possible would be an understatement. To shoot in this place we were guarded at gunpoint by our protective guide Ntando, in case of hippo’s or predators coming across us. 🐆🦁😱 @TourismZimbabweOfficial #AWorldOfWonders #VisitZimbabwe #BumiHills #AfricanBushCamps #LakeKariba #BumiHillsFoundation #Zimbabwe #ZimBathWay #DeadTrees #WildlifePlanet #AfricanAnimals #OlympusInspired #WildlifeConservation #Traveller_Au #GirlsLoveTravel #ASTW #EverydayAfrica #ExploreAfrica #WildlifeWarrior #Sunrise_Pics #SunriseLover #TravelAfrica #VisitAfrica

Places ... Elephants from every angle 🐘🐘🐘 Our charter flight from Victoria Falls to Bumi Hills @africanbushcamps via Kariba was the perfect opportunity to check out (and photograph 🤣 ) Zimbabwe from yet another perspective. My last post was about elephants from below. This one is about elephants from above. When I took this shot I was admiring the fabulous patterns and textures of this beautiful landscape and only later discovered all the teeny tiny elephants.

At last! At last I sat down (for hours and hours ) and began the mammoth task of sorting through 12,000 images taken on my Zimbabwe Tours, and editing some to share here. I’m still in the country, staying with Dreamboat and his family in Chitungwiza. And the reason for my tardiness in editing is ... babies!! 👶🏾👶🏾👶🏽 Did I mention that there are not one, not two but THREE new babies in the family? My sister in law’s were all 6 months pregnant at Christmas time and now have adorable little bubba’s. Their names are Pearl, Mason (named by Dreamboat and I after my brother ) and Lauren. (After me! 😱 ) So I’ve kind of had my hands full, literally, with babies. Anyway, to kick off sharing a LOT of shots of Zimbabwe I have this one from Lake Kariba. The very last stop on my itinerary is the divine Bumi Hills, where the sunsets are famous and the elephants are plentiful. I hope you’re all having a wonderful week? 🌞🐘❤️ @TourismZimbabweOfficial #AWorldOfWonders #VisitZimbabwe #BumiHills #AfricanBushCamps #LakeKariba #BumiHillsFoundation #Zimbabwe #ZimBathWay #Elephant #WildlifePlanet #AfricanAnimals #OlympusInspired #WildlifeConservation #Traveller_Au #GirlsLoveTravel #ASTW #EverydayAfrica #ExploreAfrica #WildlifeWarrior #SaveTheElephants #Sunset_Pics #SunsetLover #TravelAfrica #VisitAfrica

Don’t look but here comes Monday! I cannot believe we are nearly halfway through the year! It’s been a huge year for me with a job and house relocation but best of all I took a trip of my lifetime to Zimbabwe, Africa. It was simply epic and I got to see amazing animals and sunsets with amazing people who shared the same enthusiasm for adventure, nature and wildlife as me. A huge huge thank you to @laurenepbath , our tour guide who was instrumental in organising and making every detail just perfect to make this trip memorable. I will remember and draw upon the many eye opening adventures of the stunning journey you took us on and I will cherish this for many years to come. 🙌🏼Zimbabwe Africa I’ll be back to reclaim my heart ❣ . . . #africa #african #exploringafrica #africansafaris #exploreafrica #travelafrica #travellingourglobe #visitafrica #zimbabwe #tourismzimbabwe #zimbathway #animalportrait #wildlife #wildlifeconservation #wildlifephotography #elephant #sunset #sunsetlover #sunset_pics #animalkingdom #incredibleafrica #travel #travelling #travel_captures #nationalgeographic #natgeo #everydayafrica #sony #sonya7rii #sonyalpha

‘Happy Africa Day bro’ ‘Thanks bro, but it was yesterday’! 🙄 I loved the affection between these two brothers and that is the best thing about lions...they will forever live in a family group! But there will be only one head male lion and lionesses and their cubs , and as soon as the cubs have grown up they are thrown out of the family group to find their own way and destiny! Lions will never tolerate the interference of other lion family so all outsiders will be killed ! Hmmm if only I could use these survival practices in my own life without ending up in jail! 😏 . . #africa #african #exploringafrica #africansafaris #exploreafrica #travelafrica #travellingourglobe #visitafrica #zimbabwe #tourismzimbabwe #zimbathway #animalportrait #wildlife #wildlifeconservation #wildlifephotography #endangeredanimals #endangeredspecies #lion #lionlove #lions #animalkingdom #incredibleafrica #travel #travel_captures #natgeo #nationalgeographic #everydayafrica #sony #sonya7rii #sonyalpha

These sweet faces of Zimbabwe. This is Tatenda and she is 11 years old and goes to school. She has such a beautiful quiet nature but looking in her eyes I know she is powerful! We spent the day with Tatenda along with many other children. Life isn’t easy and they don’t have much but they are all kind, affectionate and happy little souls. Honestly, I could stare at this photo all day. It really makes me reflect upon our western culture and how different we are in terms of material possessions. Each day I am realising more and more that material possessions do not bring me happiness. It is spending time with people I love, forming new connections and experiencing this great planet far and wide 💗 #zimbathway #zimbabwetourism #tourismzimbabwe #visitzimbabwe #zimbabwe #zimbabwean #zimbabwe #visitafrica #aworldofwonders #canon #50mm #canon50mm #worldtones #depthgrammers #thevisualcollective #childrenofafrica #amazingafrica #facesofourworld #globalportraits #ig_shotz_people #facesoftheworld #bbctravel #travelgirlsgo #passionpassport #natgeo_africa

Take me back to the African sunsets where an evening game drive must be on your itinerary. This was our first sunset where we pulled up stumps and broke out the g&ts; well some of our crew were more interested in the g&ts than capturing the sunset!

If the waterfalls at Victoria Falls aren’t enough to impress, how about the verdant greens if the surrounding landscape. And check out the saucy raincoats we we’re wearing.

Faces ... I love giraffes ❤️ How amazing are their “nature as art” patterns ?! It was such a treat to have the opportunity to get up close and personal and hand feed this big guy @wildislife_zen in Harare. If you ever #visitzimbabwe (and I highly recommend you do ❤️🇿🇼 ) you cannot miss visiting this place. It’s not a zoo. It’s a genuine sanctuary doing incredible work and they open their doors to a lucky limited few on certain days for a very informative, private and genuinely moving experience ... oh and they throw together an amazing afternoon high tea as the giraffes feed alongside you and then beautiful sundowners and canapés under twinkling fairy lights. The big kudu from a couple of posts back even joined us at the bar 😂 Our visit was fabulous and a highlight of our amazing trip so do yourself a favour ... ❤️🦒🦁🐘 . . 📷 Olympus OM DEM1 Mkii + 12-100mm f4 Pro . . . . . #wildislife #harare #zimbabwe #africa #giraffe #giraffelove #giraffesofinstagram #giraffelover #animalrescue #wildliferescue #wildlifeconservation #animalconservation #savetheanimals #animalportrait #animalsanctuary #olympusinspired #getolympus #olympus_au #aworldofwonders #traveldeeper #travelphotography #africananimals #africantravel #africanportraits #safari #phototour #ladieslovetravel #ethicaltravel #zimbathway

I’m not usually a morning person but when you’re in Africa and you’re going to places like Victoria Falls, early rises just have to be done.

Can you ever have too many elephants in one shot? I prefer my shots to be neater and cleaner but I couldn’t resist this cuteness of elephant family drinking from the fresh water hole right in front of our underground elephant hide!

Going for a walk with Uncle Eddy and grandson through their bush land wandering around the veggie patches and learning about the different traditional uses of various seeds and parts of trees. This little one was a bit perplexed by this small group of people with white faces taking hundreds of photos. Uncle Eddy was sure he was filling his head with dozens of questions to ask when we left. Heartburn, thirsty, dirty teeth, hungry? - that bush has you covered.

Faces ... 2 days back at work and I’m feeling like a kudo in the headlights 🙄 These magnificent creatures are prized by trophy hunters but I would much rather see them in the wild than hanging on a rich dude’s wall. The debate around lawful trophy hunting in Africa is vexed and extremely complex with animal rights activists pitted against those who espouse economic and conservation benefits. I’m not going to delve into that here save to say I simply cannot for the life of me understand why someone would want to kill a beautiful wild creature in the name of sport or recreation. #visitzimbabwe and bring your tourist dollars and hopefully one day this beautiful country won’t need the hunting dollars. . 📷 Olympus OM DEM1 Mkii + 12-100mm f4 Pro . . . . . #wildislife #harare #zimbabwe #africa #animalrescue #wildlife #wildlifeconservation #wildlifephotography #africananimals #stophunting #savetheanimals #travelphotography #traveldeeper #slowtravel #ethicaltravel #aworldofwonders #justbackfrom #wheretonext #animalportrait #africageo #africawildlife #africatravel #travelafrica #wildlifesafari #africanportraits #photographytour #exploreafrica #everydayafrica #zimbathway

Africa’s ‘Big 5’ made up of lion, leopard, rhino, elephant and Cape Buffalo. This refers to the five animals that are considered the most difficult and dangerous to hunt. I was very happy to photograph this male buffalo from a distance; his steely gaze made me squirm in my safari vehicle seat! . . . #africa #african #exploringafrica #africansafaris #exploreafrica #travelafrica #travellingourglobe #visitafrica #zimbabwe #tourismzimbabwe #zimbathway #animalportrait #wildlife #wildlifeconservation #wildlifephotography #endangeredanimals #endangeredspecies #buffalo #capebuffalo #natgeo #nationalgeographic #animalkingdom #everydayafrica #sony #sonya7rii #sonyalpha

The African Darter is often known as the ‘snake bird’ because of their long thin neck which gives a snake like appearance when they swim with their bodies submerged. This photo was taken at Lake Kariba, Zimbabwe, home to not only the beautiful bird life but also to so many other animals including freshwater crocs and hippos! . . . #africa #african #exploringafrica #africansafaris #exploreafrica #travelafrica #travellingourglobe #visitafrica #zimbabwe #tourismzimbabwe #zimbathway #animalportrait #wildlife #wildlifeconservation #wildlifephotography #animalkingdom #incredibleafrica #bird #birds #birdphotography #nature #naturephotography #natgeo #nationalgeographic #beautifuldestinations #everydayafrica #sony #sonya7rii #sonyalpha

Places ... 🐘 an elephant doing elephant things at sunset at Bumi Hills on Lake Kariba - because he can ! ❤️ Sometimes you are fortunate enough to meet people that leave you in awe ... that make you wonder just what your contribution to the world will be. A highlight of our Zim trip was spending time with Mark and Cath @bumihillsfoundation and meeting founder Nick Milne. The Foundation is doing extraordinary work and thanks to their efforts these magnificent creatures will hopefully continue to thrive in their native habitat. The Bumi Hills Anti-Poaching Unit has been established as a front line response to the ongoing significant threat posed by bush meat and ivory poachers and highly trained rangers working with military operatives conduct thousands of kilometres of patrols each month, combining traditional bush skills with cutting edge technology and intelligence. The foundation also does important work in the areas of conservation and research. It was a privilege to visit HQ for a firsthand insight into the work of these committed and passionate people. Check out their insta to learn more @bumihillsfoundation and click the link in their profile to donate if you LOVE elephants ❤️🐘Thank you @laurenepbath for taking us to Bumi Hills.

A favourite moment on tour when I lay flat on the grass (a ranger at the ready 🔫 in case of a stampede ) and watched a ‘dazzle’ of about 30-40 zebras. Everyday I was in awe of the awesome light and colour of the matt blue sky and khaki coloured grass of the Zimbabwe plains. I remember making the comment ‘I just can’t take a bad picture right now’ much to the amusement of @laurenepbath and @suzieweiss who had joined me. . . . #africa #african #exploringafrica #africansafaris #exploreafrica #travelafrica #travellingourglobe #visitafrica #zimbabwe #tourismzimbabwe #zimbathway #animalportrait #wildlife #wildlifeconservation #wildlifephotography #endangeredanimals #endangeredspecies #zebra #zebras #zebrastripes animalkingdom #incredibleafrica #travel #traveltheworld #travelphotography #beautifuldestinations #everydayafrica #sony #sonya7rii #sonyalpha
