Gallery support for Save the Rhino

I feel fortunate to have had the pleasure over the years of seeing close-up both black and white rhino’s in their natural, wild habitat across Africa.These are wonderful creatures and a fascinating throwback to the age of dinosaurs; it is sad that they are being poached out of existence and are critically endangered.

A taste of the migration of the bewildered-beasts

Following the extraordinary scenery of the Ngorogoro Crater and proximity to the wildlife in Tarangire, we headed out to the Northern corridor of the Serengeti to (hope) to see one of the great natural wonders of the world … the annual migration of wildebeest.

Mozzy madness

If there was a day to cover a range of experiences, my arrival in Mozambique did pretty well.
