Today’s travel photo is of a buffalo in Ngorongoro Crater, Tanzania. This buffalo kept a very close eye on me as I took its photo, and it continued to do so until we drove off. If you’re chasing the “Big 5” on an African safari, you will need to spot one of these guys… Read More

I rubbed the sleep from my tired eyes and stared out of the window of my safari vehicle. The sun was just rising above the horizon, slowly illuminating the land around us.

You can’t see it in this photo, but the tree that the giraffe is eating from is covered in lots of nasty thorns.

Today’s travel photo is of a lioness patiently watching a herd of zebras on the grassy plains of Ngorongoro Crater, Tanzania.

I took this photo on… Read More
