This is a video of some of my favourite shots from my recent Photo Tour to Botswana and South Africa with Journey’s Unforgettable.  We had a great group on board and all came away having captured some amazing new wildlife images and enjoyed some very special experiences together. Seeing a mother Cheetah with her family of five adolescent cubs, watching a lion stalk and chase down a leopard within metres of our truck, and witnessing the magnificence of the Great White Sharks as they breach upon… READ MORE >
