Thanks for the kind comments . The technical details & often biological notes on each photo are on the website which is linked to the blue internet icon on the side of the post (www.africaraw.com).

Since our retirement 8 years ago we spend 4-6 months a year roaming the African bush & game parks in our landcruiser with a rooftop tent. Our site gives tips on travel spots, photography, & driving a 4WD for beginnners. Our reports may help other "old age adventurers" who want to start travelling around Africa.

I have also started a blog on the site which concentrates on the physiology of african wildlife e.g. why are female hyenas masculinized. Still lots of work to be done explaining the very  varied & sometimes difficult concepts. But any interesting titbits on nature are also reported e.g. Ianin Woodhouse's use of Van Gogh, Seurat, & Constable & PS to draw attention to deforestation  htpp://blog.africaraw.com

Very very nice.  Post more.

I will try to get some of mine up from the Serengeti.  Unfortunately, I went in August when many animals were in the Maasai Mara in Kenya.  Still, I got some nice ones.

Great shots.  4-6 months in Africa is beyond a dream.  Do you rent or own the Landcruiser. I will need to study your website.

BTW, where do spend the 6 to 8 months?  I hope some place equal exciting.   :)
