  1. https://www.nytimes.com/2017/08/22/travel/botswana-safari-women-chobe.html?smprod=nytcore-ipad&smid=nytcore-ipad-shareAt one of Africa’s most progressive safari destinations, all-female guides are a success with guests from around the world.
  2. @Pault A brilliant witty report illustrated by your wonderful, evocative photography- must say the A7RII really came through. Enjoyed the Bibi stories as well. The Mara portion was just amazing- the bustard/plane incident was downright sobering. Thanks for sharing this.
  3. Another great report in the making. The lioness and cub sequence, the bedraggled cheetah family, the action shot of the female cheetah speeding towards a successful kill, the Naboisho landscapes prior to a drenching storm, were all highlights. Look forward to more.
  4. Geoff Finally catching up on your brilliant report and exceptional photography. The backlit chameleon, the triple shot-reflection, shadow and in flight bee eater in a single frame and the hippo with oxpeckers were three photography contest winnable shots amongst dozens of other superior shots. Also your sequence of the feisty cub sparring with a big male at a kill was truly the epitome of living dangerously and as someone else remarked, if this little guy survives he will be a hell of a lion. The details of SLNP were also both fascinating and helpful. Thanks for sharing your report.
  5. @Tulips, Nice pictures! You really get a different perspective from being on the water. Thanks for sharing your report.

  7. @Jeremie I can't believe I either missed or don't recall this superb report with stunning pictures from 3 years ago. Anyway enjoying it again.
  8. Just catching up with your trip, Hari. Great shots of the Gnus and lions in the tall grass. Evocative crossing shots without the crowds in the Mara and of course your signature cheetah photographs. Tanzania came through for you. Thanks for sharing.
  9. Stunning lion fight sequence. I wonder what we would have seen if you had a longer lens on. Thinking we might have seen a lion eyeball to rival the wildebeests death stare amazing presence of mind and steady hand to get those 7 sequential shots in 7 seconds. Holding down the shutter button, the D500 likely shot around 70 images.
  10. @Janzin i finally had time to go over your full report- really enjoyed your magnificent photography and felt nostalgic about the Mara. We too had Ping as our guide who then worked for GPC at Mara Plains/ Toto. He was an exceptional guide and I'm glad he has teamed up with Bill Givens. Looking forward to more of Ping and details on TWS camp in the triangle. Thanks for sharing your report.
  11. A few issues so far- I also have the green bands on sides of the frame of a 27" iMac. The iPad page also does not fill the entire frame but appears to float inside with green bars on the sides and top. iPhone appears ok but if you push the frame the green appears appear- however they are hidden in normal view. Also, unread content now brings up single picture additions to individual photo albums by members which takes away from the function.
  12. A magnificent scene- you should blow this picture up and put it on a wall.
  13. Appears to be around Euro 0.74 per liter. http://www.globalpetrolprices.com/Tanzania/diesel_prices/
  14. Patsy I had revisited your Moroccan pictures as that old thread was recently revived here. Your pictures continue to astonish me. While beauty is in the eye of the beholder as the old saying goes, your photography is amongst the finest I have ever had the pleasure to encounter. These latest images have just made my jaw drop. I hope for all our sakes you have several more safaris. Thank you for sharing.
  15. +1. Well said. Thanks for sharing this Kit and Sangeeta.
