LOCK DOWN PHOTOGRAPHIC SAFARI V

On today’s game drive I not only used my cameras but I also got a great shots from my drone. Combined with the noise from my vehicle the herd of Cape Buffalo ignored the flying machine 😊 I got some great footage not only of the Buffalo but of a female Cheetah on a kill and of young Elephant bulls sparring.

Stay home and stay safe 😊

STAY-AT-HOME TUESDAY

Today’s feel good picture is of a little baby Baboon. He was just stopping for a second to get his picture taken before he continued playing with his brothers, sisters and cousins 😊

Have a good day. Stay home and stay safe!

LOCK DOWN PHOTOGRAPHIC SAFARI IV

One of the major feature of today’s game drive was a flat tire and a wheel change 😊. But we also had some good sightings, Lions, White Rhinos, Warthogs and a Journey of Giraffes just after sunset.

STAY-AT-HOME MONDAY

Very colorful, very slow moving and very fast catching prey = Panther Chameleon, my favorite reptile 😊. This is especially for all my friends in Switzerland. The picture was taken at Masoala Hall at the Zurich Zoo.

Many of us have to stay home in this world wide crisis. So I thought you might enjoy to receive a wildlife image every day of the week until things are back to normal.

LOCK DOWN PHOTOGRAPHIC SAFARI III

Today’s Game Drive was all about general game, beautiful scenery and a very good looking butterfly.

Often we ‘hunt’ so much after the big five that we forget all the other amazing species.

I hope you will enjoy these images. Stay home and stay safe 😊

STAY-AT-HOME SUNDAY

Having fun after a mud bath!

Fun fact: Young elephant calves sometimes suck their trunks to help them relaxing when they are not feeding.

LOCK DOWN PHOTOGRAPHIC SAFARI II

A lot of my friends around the world are quite envious about my lock down location. Being grounded on a beautiful 14,000ha big five game reserve is not the worst fait for a professional wildlife photographer.

To share a bit of my luck I will continue to post pictures taken on game drives on Thanda during this crisis. I hope they will brighten up your stay-at-home days a little.

A ‘LOCK DOWN’ SAFARI

Being the resident wildlife photographer, locked down on Thanda Safari, I went on a game drive this afternoon to bring a few animal images from this beautiful place to your home.

I hope you enjoy this special photographic game drive. All the pictures were taken today.

Have a good evening 😊

STAY-AT-HOME-FRIDAY – OSTRICH

The giant eggs – from one of which this little one hatched a short while ago – are the largest of any living bird (15cm long and weighing as much as two dozen chicken eggs).

Ostrich eggs are incubated by the dominant female by day and by the male by night and the chicks hatch after 35 to 45 days.
