The Easter Explosion

April must be one of my favourite months as far as photography is concerned. The natural light glows strongest as most of the humidity, typical of the rainy season has left, vegetation is lush and green, and there is no dust or smoke in the air. The wind is pretty absent too as we only […]

The hippo yawn….

It was the 7th of January, a spectacular afternoon on the Zambezi. We had come together to celebrate the 50th birthday of Ian Stevenson, CEO of Conservation Lower zambezi, check www.conservationlowerzambezi.org.

Prey has no choice but to get closer to the river as food source becomes more scarce inland, and predators follow, sometimes using the Zambezi river as a trap.   At the end of October we consistently observed […]

On Holiday??

Whilst some think we are on holiday whilst the lodge is closed, we are busy maintaining boats, vehicles, equipment, varnishing, painting, fixing etc.We are redoing a couple of verandahs, and still getting on with the new vanity tables. Washbasins are still on our snaglist…  

The Rains Are Here!

The rainy season seems to have hit the Lower Zambezi at last! The vegetation is lush…
