Of all the animals we saw on safari, the cats were the ones that took my breath away. There were moments I forgot to breathe I was so awe struck by them. This stunning leopard was the first cat we saw on our very first game drive and I will never, ever forget the moment I laid eyes on him. It was both grounding and breathtaking. We were lucky enough to see him each of the three days of our stay and it never got old.

Repost from @guernsey_brothers: “We are busy looking at what equipment we should invest in, for what we are creating, which is a bit of a nightmare considering we have three people all fans of different camera brands. Most of the photos on our pages have been shot with the older full frame Nikon D600 and f2.8 Nikkor lens, honestly I love this camera yes it’s been a bit outdated but nonetheless I have loved shooting with it and I still feel it’s a great body for still photography.
Any ideas on what cameras you think would be best for stills and video that is reliable, has amazing colour science, good dynamic range and just all in all a great camera. And needs to be able to handle the harsh conditions of the African bush.”
And we enjoyed hosting you! Come back soon and we’ll find those lions!

We had an amazing time in Kruger National Park with @tentedadventures! Our guides Jason and Barry were wonderful, the safaris were amazing and the company and meals was even better. Leaving sooo satisfied and can’t wait for my next safari someday. Still chasing that lion 🦁 #SouthAfrica#Kruger
UNIVERSE LISTENS-KRUGER NATIONAL PARK It was 6 a.m. in the month of May when we reached the Kruger National Park in South Africa.We bought our tickets ,got on our Safari which was occupied by nine of us ,including our guide and the driver .While explaining about the wild life, their habitat and the enormity of the park, the guide asked each one of us for which animal, would we like to see in the park. Everyone told their choices and when it was my turn, I told, I want to see a peacock . The guide smilingly said ," there was a probality of seeing all animals, which you all have desired to see but , you young lady, just you won't be able to see a peacock as there were none here". It was very cold and we all were provided with warm shawls by the guide. Our automobile was open , noise free and pollution free. We saw many animals like tigers, lion ,giraffe , zebras, a lot of Impalas, antelopes, hyenas, wild buffaloes ,rhinoceros , hippopotamus etc- in their most natural habitat. After few hours we had a short halt ,so we found a nice place where we could just sit ,relax and have our packed meal. As we settled, a beautiful bird came hopping on the chair next to mine and saw me intensely. I really loved the sight of her,she was very lovely with very beautiful feathers. Then one after the other many birds of same species flocked in, hoping and chirping all over my table, chair and on the railing . I was just awestruck with their presence and was delighted to share my food with them . I felt intense happiness, but most importantly ,what kept resonating in my mind was that, how the universe listened to my request, of wanting to see a peacock and so lovingly responded, by sending these beautiful birds whose feathers were exactly of the same color as of peacocks.

Lucky shot of a big White Rhino in the bush during my journey in the Kruger, South Africa. It is the largest extant species of rhinoceros in the world.
The name "white rhinoceros" is a bad translation from Dutch to English. The English word "white" is derived by mistranslation of the Dutch word "wijd", which means "wide" in English.. I can tell you this Rhino is not white at all !

Had an amazing authentic safari experience here at Elephant Plains Lodge at Sabi Sands! It has spectacular views over the riverbed and open area where you can watch animals below or just enjoy and relax outdoors 👌 #safari
We’d go hunting in the bush the whole morning and afternoon looking for animals. At sundown, our ranger would pull over and find a nice spot for us to drink, talk and enjoy the sunset view. Gooood times good memories 👌🦒🐘 #nature
Now sharing with you this #sunrise in #SouthAfrica 🌅 We always wake up at dawn and go out before sunrise every morning because the animals are more active at this time. (And at dusk too) Most animals avoid the heat of midday and just hide in the bushes 😄 not ideal if you want to see some big cats 🦁🐅🐯 and wild dogs 🐕🐶
