|Timeless. The legendary San people who got immortalized by Africa's most eloquent writer, Sir Laurens van der Post.|
I have just returned from a safari that allowed me to share the best of Botswana with a lovely family from the UK. Among their ranks was a Wildlife photographer, Travel-writer and a Musician! I cannot recall a dull moment while on trip and the wildlife, general experiences and all round energy of the safari was highly memorable.
|Remarkably our very first photographic subject was the rate and seldom seen Aardwolf.|
|Next in line was an equally photogenic family of Bat-eared Foxes.|
|Just you and the vasy saltpan. Our sundowner stop after a quadbike adventure.|
|A very photoshoot where the image of the trip was taken. Sadly (or fortunately) not by me :)|
|We also spend some time at a hyena den where this little cub provided endless opportunities.|
|Our very first Leopard encounter at Vumbura plains.|
|In total we saw five different leopards on safari like this one at very last light.|

This will wind up reading like a testimonial, although that is not my (sole) intention. Sfter two decades of traversing the South and East African bush, I can safely say that our experiences with you was exceptional, you belong with the best. Your unfailing good homour, indefatigable energy, great patience and remarkable skill behind the lens made you a terrific resource for us to have by our side. I hereby swear never to knowingly centre any photograph with front light! The joys of backlighting, giving animals space in the frame and most of all the joys of flash photography are all lifelong skills you’ve given me. I am sure our paths will cross again. May your Leopards all be in sausage trees with pink light behind, A – UK
For the first time in a myriad of Safaris, I filmed buffaloes lying on my tummy, used flash in bright sunshine and put my subject in a corner. Albie, we met you as our guide but we are parting as friends. Love to have you and your family in the Indian Jungles someday. GJ - UK
