The wheels of the 4x4 stopped under a large tree. Peering through the window I could already make out people staring in our direction. Small fires burnt adding some light to the morning, the sun still had not laid its fingers on the tallest of trees that surrounded us. There was a little questioning in the vehicle in regards to how welcome were were as the Mursi had not swarmed our car, maybe it was too early or maybe we were just not welcome. We sat waiting to see. Two children came forward, one painted from head to toe in white body paint, the other clad in warthog tusks, rope & metal rings. This a collection of decorations I had seen before. The two children pressed their faces to the glass, wondering who & what sat inside. The tinted glass gave them no evidence. Perplexed they pulled away, looked at each other before turning to a group of women walking right our way, the traditional Mursi welcoming to the village was clearly heard. Those who have met the Mursi before know what it sounded like. I looked on & laughed, nothing had changed all be it for a new piece of kit that I now attached to my camera. I could not wait to step out & see how it went. The others who were with me had already alighted, the Mursi followed in their footsteps whet ever they went. Concerns of our welcoming were washed away as the Mursi sound track played out in their wake. The two girls had not followed, they still wondered what sat in the car. No doubt they had seen me move giving my presence away. As I stepped out I was greeted in the traditional Mursi way. I said hello & laughed, shaking my head but interested to see what my 85 could really do. I spotted a small stump, it jutted from a termite mound & offered me the elevation I needed, now it was just a matter of balance. The stump was not that round. It took two attempts to balance myself as the girl I now knew as Nachule lined up below. I wobbled & swayed while taking a few shots, but I really needed to stay steady as I did not want to compromise on my 1.2 f stop. I tried & tried again until our strange show had drawn the attention of the women of the village, all I could do now was Hope I had got the shot.

Calling the pride.... This young lion was lost, separated from his pride. He was calling them and uneasy being on his own. His pride was about a 10 minutes drive away resting in the shade after feasting on a kill. Shot in the Masai Mara National Reserve in October 2017. #lion#lionpride#masaimara#maasiamara#bigfive#lost#gamedrive#kenyasafari#alexwalkerserian#nkoromboserian#seriancamp#africanamazing#onlyafrica#wildlife_perfection#africageophoto#africananimals#africatravelresource#natgeoafrica#africawildlife#nikond500#nikonphoto#nikonwildlife#tamron#tamron150600#bestguide#bestsafari

Our guide guessed that this old giraffe bull had had a bad encounter with a predator the night before. Despite his age, familiarity with vehicles and our distance, he was very skittish and kept hiding himself into the canopy. Unusual behaviour for a creature in a well-managed region that prioritises animal respect and welfare 🦒

Ol Doinyo Lengai.
"Mountain of God" in the Maasai language, is an active volcano
Ol Doinyo Lengai. "Mountain of God" in the Maasai language, is an active volcano located in the Gregory Rift, south of Lake Natron within the Arusha Region of Tanzania, Africa. Ol Doinyo Lengai is unique among active volcanoes in that it produces natrocarbonatite lava, a unique occurrence of volcanic carbonatite. “Monte di Dio è la traduzione letterale dalla lingua Masai all'italiano per Ol Doinyo Lengai. Il nome è probabilmente dovuto alla sua forma perfettamente conica, alla composizione unica della sua lava ed al fatto che il vulcano è ancora attivo ragion percui alcuni Masai tuttora ritengono che al suo interno vi operino gli Dei. Il vulcano sorge in prossimità del Lago Natron ed è l'unico vulcano al mondo ad eruttare carbonatite di sodio e potassio, causa dell'estrema salinità e corrosività delle acque del lago. Il colore delle colate è nero e bianco argenteo e la lava solidificata assume una tinta inusuale che varia dal bianco-grigio al verde chiaro con stalattiti bianco-rosate, bianco-verdi e bianco-gialle. La cima del monte (2890 mt) sembra quindi innevata ma in realtà è coperta di lava. Fino all'eruzione del 2007 i crateri della vetta erano due: quello meridionale praticamente inattivo e quello settentrionale, attivo, la cui profondità superava i 200 mt. Dopo l'eruzione del 2007 i due crateri si sono fusi in uno” . . . . . . . . . #lakenatron#volcano#tanzania#sunrise#africa#mountains#rift#lake#safari#wildlife#adventure#nature#aroundtheworldpix#instapic#instagood#travelafrica#instafrica#instatravel#travel#natgeo#natgeotravel#africanamazing#africageophoto#ourplanetdaily#earthpix#wildlifephotography#naturephotography#exploringtheglobe#awesomeearth#bestvacations

Don't worry sister, I got you😊 lions are the only truly sociable cats. The pride is usually made up of sisters, aunts, mothers & daughters and then the pride male or males. The young male cubs stay within the pride until they reach sexual maturity and are then subsequently ousted, usually by the pride male(s). This prevents in breeding and protects the genetic pool. This is a picture of Tuli & Thani, siblings with a strong bond but one that is not ever lasting. He will have to go it on his own at some stage. Until then, best friends!

Feeling observed... 😂 For once it is not me to watch the giraffes but it is them watching me 😂 🦒 Part of my job as a ranger is to make sure that the environment is in balance. Removing alien plants (in this case Thorny apples) is important as they take space and water that the indigenous vegetation need to prosper.

Master of Stalking 👀 Leopards have excellent vision and use their binocular vision to locate their prey. Their pattern fur serves to camouflage and be able to approach their prey as close to 5-10m! Using the element of surprise by jumping to their prey and bitting to the back of the head or around the throat. #africageophoto#natgeo100contest

When your tools are over worked and need a rest... sometimes even the oldest and wisest need to rest before continuing their daily feast. Elephants have a very weak digestive system and need to take in a lot of food per day to sustain their huge body mass. They generally need about 5% of their body weight in food this a bull that weighs 6 tons needs roughly about 300kg of food per day and that means they spend about 18-20 hours a day feeding... . . . @davidyarrow#dypcomp#itsfiveoclocksomewhere#elephant#elephants#blackandwhite#africa#southafrica#krugerpark#krugernationalpark#natgeoyourshot#africageographic#photography#wildlifephotography#canon#canonphoto#naturegram#wildlife_perfection#instawild#earthcapture#safari#photosafari#wildafrica#bbcearth#thisissouthafrica#big_shotz#travel#africageophoto#weg#menseselense

So, for the first time in my career my wife and I have a break over the Christmas/New years period. And to celebrate this we did a road trip from JHB through the karoo down to Knysna and back. Although only 5 days, I feel completely rested and ready for 2019. This image I took overlooking the Valley of desolation on New years eve, coupled with amazing rain falling in the karoo makes this my favourite shot. #karoo#travelsouthafrica#travelphotography#african#naturephotography#naturemiracles#nature_perfection#photographers#AFRICANature#africangeographic#africansunsets#southafrica#valleyofdesolation#graaffreinet#earthescope#africageophoto

Snack Time 😋 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Ground hornbills weave their way through the maze of grasses on the open plains in search of anything that moves that could fit in those big bills of theirs. It amazes me that they’ve mastered the art of cracking a tortoise’s shell! This demonstrates the sheer power of these birds; yet they still manage to move around so gracefully.
