South Africa

It’s four to five hours drive from Mbabane (Swaziland) to Jo’burg. On that road I got this snapshot of a truck’s silhouette against the red and golden sky.

The Ultimate African Experience

The Ultimate African Experience

Botswana
This photo might look a pit dull (because of a poor camera and low light) but the moment I took it was amazing. We were on a safari in Chobe National Park. In the evening when the sun had just gone down we came across of this herd of buffaloes. There were hundreds or maybe even a thousand buffaloes crossing a dry riverbed. Young ones and old ones all together. In that darkening night the ribbon of buffaloes continued as long as I could see. That alone was a mesmerising sight. But that alone wasn’t enought. The lions were also there. A pack of lions had killed a kudu and they were eating less than a hundred meters away from the buffaloes. One lion left the pack and moved closer to the buffaloes just to observe them. The lion was sitting there staring the buffaloes while we were sitting in a safari truck and staring her staring the buffaloes. The buffaloes went on and we had to return to the camp but that sight I will never forget.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Spring

Weekly Photo Challenge: Spring

Spring is something that most of the people living on this planet never experience. Only those living in Europe, North America or Northern parts of Asia really know what it’s like. 2008 and 2009 when I had been in Swaziland the spring (and especially May) ment tome that it was time to go home. This sunset picture is taken from the planes window.
