How does one photograph the grandeur of an elephant? Do you zoom out to capture their gargantuan size or zoom in for their intricate detail.
They are so interactive with each other. Do you focus on an individual or the entire herd.
I don’t have the answers to any of these questions. All I have is the above. Elephants. They are the magic of Africa. #thisismytrophy

You can feel the rumbles of the herd. Those low, purring vocalisations go straight through you and vibrate against your bones. It’s a warm, welcoming feeling and such an intrinsic part of the African bush. If you haven’t experienced it, it’s time to plan a trip. #thisismytrophy #thejoyofelephants #elephantrumbles #botswana

Following ghosts. We've been spending a lot of time spoor tracking these last few days. Its amazing how much you can learn from a footprint. Behaviours become apparent, injuries identified. You can't help but imagine the individual that you follow in the footsteps of, its presence is so apparent yet the physical being may be miles away.

Brothers in Arms
.
Tours are in the planning process which have kept me away from IG!
.
Some of them involve getting back to the Mara and searching for these brothers.
.
Cruising their territory, marking where it’s necessary, and moving on.
.
Come join us next year and feel what it’s like to see lions for the first time...or come back again because you love eating the dust of Africa!

She's a phenomenal hunter in perfect condition. Like all Okavango lions, her muscles are highly developed from running through water on a daily basis and she is bigger than most lions found in other areas. It is not possible to live in this wet environment without learning to incorporate the water into following prey species and being successful in hunting them. She currently has small cubs tucked away from the rest of the pride and is hunting on her own. @dereckjoubert and I have watched her stalking red lechwe in the deep swamps for hours. She doesn't stop until she is successful. With the very high numbers of lechwe around the island, she also doesn't need to hunt at night and indeed seems to be getting up later and later in the day - often hunting around mid-day. We used to stay with these lions from pre-dawn to film their hunts, but we're learning that right now, when the sun is rising, we too can rest with her. She's not going to move if she doesn't need to. #thisismytrophy#okavangolions #bigcats #dubaplains

Another day, another hunt. A baby lechwe doesn’t go very far amongst hungry lions. It time to head back out into the swamps and see if today she will be lucky in hunting again. #thisismytrophy #okavangolions #tsaropride

A brief life for this baby lechwe but her two cubs will grow stronger. This lioness is an excellent provider and they have a good chance in making it to maturity. #thisismytrophy #okavangolions #circleoflife

“Shades of black and hints of gold sprinkled with December soul.
The Dinoking male is here and he is the most handsome of all.” - quoted from @shaazjung (one of the greatest photographers and story tellers of our time). #thisismytrophy

An unmistakable profile. There’s no point using energy if you don’t have to. A good vantage point from which to watch the plains makes all the difference. Lions may seem lazy but there’s very little that they miss. #okavangolions #thisismytrophy #pride

Africa’s most endangered cat hunts by sight, often mounting termite mounds or sign posts to search for their prey. Resulting in the chance to get a photo of an intense gaze. ⬆️ Exhibit A. #thisismytrophy

It’s hard to describe the sensation of a leopard’s blazing stare once those eyes lock with yours. This male had been watching me for at least several minutes before I finally spotted him deep in the canopy. Kalahari bushmen often describe the experience of an unseen big cat gaze as a heavy weight upon the shoulders and they make sure to pay close attention whenever the sensation arises. Whether there’s truth in this or not I certainly felt an eerie twinge moments before our eyes met.
