Preparing lunch for these children is a contender for the best experience I’ve had in Africa in over a year and a half on the continent in 18 countries....what humble, kind-hearted, mindful people. Most of my efforts on the continent focus on tourism and promoting regions as a premier destination, but on this day, I joined the efforts of some Canadians treating a village’s youth to a Christmas lunch, and it was the most memorable Christmas I’ve ever had. #travelinspo#travelbook#travelpictures#travelpicoftheday#traveldestination#travelpicks#amazingcaptures#bestvacation#exploremoreoutdoors#worldvision@everydayafrica#africa#africatravel#africaphotography#mamaafrica#travelafrica#africarising#wanderlustofafrica#checkoutafrica#pinafrica#motherland#instaafrica#loveafrica#africatotheworld#africanphotography#africaday#dailyafrica#africanamazing#onlyafrica#natgeo#nonprofits@everydayafrica

A 5-hour car drive, 4 hours by a private bus, an hour on foot, one more hour by a public bus (an interesting adventure by itself by the way), an hour walking and we have finally reached Blue Nile Falls in the Bahir Dar suburbs. In a dry season and after a hydroelectric station was build up the river. Was it worth it? Effort justification bias suggests that it definitely was! #aerial#aerialphotography#africaninspired#bahirdar#birdseyeview#bluenilefalls#brilliant_ethiopia#dronedose#dronephotography#earthcapture#ethiopia#exploretocreate#fromwhereidrone#mavicpro#onlyafrica#ourplanetdaily#speechlessplaces#travellingthroughtheworld#traveltheworld#viewfromabove#waterfall#waterfalls#аэросъемка#аэрофотосъемка#водопады#дрон#квадрокоптер#коптер#красивыеместа#эфиопия

Eland
#Eland, one of my favourites antelopes ❤️ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Eland is the second largest antelope in the world but also the slowest. Males can reach the height of 180 cm without horn. The horns of females are longer (up to 65 cm long) but thinner than males'. Males weight up to 1000 kg! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ___________________ #animalfacts#africananimals#african_portraits#antelope#animalelite#animalkingdom#africanamazing#africanimals#africageophoto#animal_captures#beautifulanimals#didyouknow#krugerexplorer#live_love_wildlife#natgeowild#naturephoto#nikonphotography#nikonitalia#onlyafrica#pickoftheday#southafrica#splendid_animals#safari#wildafrica#wildlifephoto#wildlifephotography#WildlifeiG

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.

Let’s talk about rhino horn. ⠀ ⠀ Across Africa, rhinos are being killed for their horns. ⠀ But why you might ask? ⠀ ⠀ Some believe there is medicinal value when you ingest rhino horn and it will cure you of your ailments.⠀ ⠀ This is not true. ⠀ ⠀ Why? ⠀ ⠀ Rhino horn is made of keratin which is the same exact protein in your hair, fingernails and toenails. ⠀ ⠀ NO variant of keratin has any medicinal value. ⠀ ⠀ No doctor is telling you to bite your nails and make sure you swallow so your cancer, impotency, nosebleeds, fever, rheumatism or other ailments will be cured.⠀ ⠀ We could all identify this as an absurd statement. ⠀ ⠀ In the last 40 years the world has lost 95% of its rhinos due to illegal wildlife trade (@wildaid). 😢 Do your part and spread the word. ⠀ ⠀ Misinformation, greed and ignorance is at the heart of the rhino poaching issue and we can all do our part to educate ourselves and those around us. ⠀ ⠀ Your voice matters. ⠀ ⠀ We can make a difference. 🦏 📷 @ashbay

Zebra in on dry and dusty plain in Soysambu. This time last year, things were very dry. This year, we are hoping for rains that rivaled last years. Rain here, even when it’s a lot, is a good thing. It means farmers can produce crops, wildlife have grasses to graze and livestock aren’t competing for the same land. We are just on the brink of our rainy season and small rain showers are slowly popping up around the country. For us, it’s also expedition season. When the rain comes, the winds go down which means we can do some good flying.

. . Small Family Unit . . It seems I may have been wrong about IG not liking animals appearing tiny in wide landscapes. So lets carry on the experiment with a few more wildlife habitat or environmental shots to really test the hypothesis. . . This image of a female Elephant and her two young was made in the Seronera region of central Serengeti 5 years ago. The Elephants had returned from a late morning mud bath and were grazing in the open Savannah as clouds built up for an afternoon shower. I was drawn to the close connection between the mother and her young and the wide expansive landscape of the Serengeti. This is truly big sky country and the image attempts to show the scale of these beautiful animals against the even larger habitat. On some level I wanted to express how stark that environment can be. There is this misconception out there that Africa is teaming with wildlife, that you can see great herds everywhere you look. That may be true on some occasions, but the truth is life has to fight hard to survive here. The pressure on them from every side is enormous. If conservation efforts aren't maintained with protection for all species the numbers will decline. Perhaps that more than anything is what I wanted to capture in this image. The big, uncertain world where even the mighty are small and family is everything. . . #elephants#savetheelephants#serengeti#animalelite#animallovers#wildlifeaddicts#tanzania#shots_of_animals#wildlife#discoverearth#earthpix#animalphotos#elephantlove#natgeo#earthcapture#instagood#elefante#grassland#onlyafrica#travelafrica#africanamazing#india_ig#indianphotographer#mumbai_igers#africanwildlife#wildlifegeography#wildlifeplanet#nomadstories#nomadlife

It takes courage to grow up and become who you really are - E.E.Cummings⠀ ⠀ I took this picture a looooong time ago while in Kruger Park (of course). ⠀ ⠀ This lioness was lying far away from the road in a dried riverbed. I was fortunate enough that I could borrow the 600mm lens from a friend to take these pictures (and then she is still far away!). ⠀ ⠀ If you had asked me 10 years ago where I think I would be in ten years time, living in South Africa and taking pictures in Kruger would have never crossed my mind. ⠀ ⠀ But it just happened... growing up I never had this specific idea what I wanted to be or become. I guess everything in my life just “happened”. I haven’t stopped growing , ok in height I’ve stopped growing, but I keep growing mentally every day. ⠀ ⠀ I think I yet have to find out who I really am. But for now I’m just Peggy, A Backyard Hiker and I’m happy with that.

“I’m sure there used to be a road here?” 🤷🏼‍♂️ It doesn’t take much rain for some of the roads on the #blackrhinoreserve to become un-drivable and with all the rain we’ve had in the past 2 months a few of these clay-soil roads were almost not driven on at all. Annual forbs like the wild hibiscus (yellow flowers pictured here) waisted no time in taking over these open spaces . . . . #pilanesberg#pilanesbergnationalpark#southafrica#thisissouthafrica#roads#flowers#sunrise#goldenhour#menseselense#odpshutters#joureisbeginhier#natgeo100contest#clouds#naturelovers#naturephotography#emeraldseason#luxurysafari#onlyafrica#mountains#art#africansafari#africageophoto

Aerial surveillance forms a key part of the fight against poaching in our vast national parks and conservation areas. In northern Kafue (Zambia), we assisted the Kasonso Aerial Anti Poaching unit and learn a lot about the importance of helicopters in the protection of wildlife. Not only can they cover huge tracts of land otherwise impassable by vehicle due to lack of roads or waterlogged areas, but their ability to drop rangers at the point of action makes them invaluable tools in the war against poaching. . . . . . . . #wildwonderfulworld#wildlifeconservation#conservation#wildgeography#savethewild#protectwildlife#thisisafrica#onlyafrica#antipoaching#wildliferanger#antipoachingranger#awareness#humanwildlifeconflict#flyingforconservation#helicopter#r44#r44helicopter#helicopterpilot#surveillance#savingwildlife

Being able to wake up in my own time, is something I relish. It doesn't matter what time that happens to be, but I do enjoy doing mornings at my own pace. Sometimes this requires an extra early alarm, so as to be ready to face others with my chosen mood. At the moment, I have the good fortune of waking up to this... the most magnificent sunrises from the Serengeti, and they sure do help with mood selection. Have a great day!
