Journey to Omo Valley of Ethiopia

Journey to Omo Valley of Ethiopia

A year in the making, and with thanks to the efforts of Nicky at Eyes on Africa, I have built a nearly perfect photography adventure to photograph the seldom visited tribes of the Omo Valley. An adventure totally focused on capturing these tribes and limited to only four clients. Bring back images that are seldom seen of tribes that may soon be lost forever.

Botswana Safari: Linyanti, Day 4

We boarded a bush flight to Linyanti Bush Camp after a fond farewell to the wonderful staff at Khwai Tented Camp. 

Bordering Chobe National Park, Linyanti is a rugged paradise. Our camp is situated right on the banks of the Linyanti River, in a private concession area, with woodlands and marshes that support impressive numbers of wildlife. 

Almost immediately after arriving to our camp, we watched large herds of elephant cross the Linyanti River on their way to settle in the uplands for the night. We had a serious photography session!

If you like elephants and water, this is the camp to visit – and this is the right time of year to do it. Mature males jockeyed for position while the mothers protected their young. With all of that activity, we had a smorgasbord of endless interesting interactions to observe and photograph.

Botswana Safari: Okavango Delta, Khwai

I met my group in Johannesburg where we had a wonderful dinner at Tribes African Grill Steak House. The following morning we headed out to Maun, Botswana to begin our Muench workshop. After several airline delays, we finally made it to Khwai Tented Camp, and were able to catch the last bit of light at the nearby hippo streams. 

I have a very talented group of photographers who have named their vehicles the Botswana Boys, under the guide of Pilot, and the Cologne Connection, under the guide of Partner. 

Tomorrow, it is a very early rise (0500) as we start our search for African wild dogs and leopards.
