The only current English guidebook I could find on Gabon describes it as “an oasis of stability and prosperity in a region that has had more than its fair share of trouble”. It is indeed a remarkable country and was at the top of my African wish-list for many reasons: 80% covered in dense forest, […]

In 2009 I was commissioned to document a complex rock art panel on the roof of a shelter in a remote area of South Africa’s Drakensberg Mountains. The area is out of bounds to the general public and required me visiting the site on three different occasions to capture all the relevant information from the […]
Many would say that craft beer is about quality, or that, if you can stir the mash tun by hand, it is craft. When planning a craft beer route, one that is definitive or meaningful in some way, one needs to look beyond simple certainties. Indeed, quality is paramount, and what sets craft apart in […]
I struggled to wake up and keep warm. The searing desert temperatures had traded places with a blast from the South Pole. A layer of ice clung to the windscreen as we climbed into the vehicle at Klein Aus Vista, but it couldn’t dampen my spirits. I was going to visit the wild horses of […]
In the highlands of Ethiopia, American scientist Meg Lowman is working with local forest ecologist Alemayehu Wassie to protect ancient church forests. As in many developing countries, much of Ethiopia’s original forests have been cleared for subsistence agriculture and for harvesting timber and firewood, diminishing northern Ethiopia’s forest cover from 45% of its territory in […]
I was used to working in the savannahs of eastern and southern Africa, where the animals I studied roamed in full sight. I was used to the relative comfort and safety of getting around in a 4×4, and my camera went everywhere with me. Then, in 2010, I arrived in the Central African country of […]
But going there none of the songs playing in the minivan were ones that I had requested. We were on a team-building trip, en route to Djuma Private Game Reserve. Africa Geographic’s advertising manager, Adie, had emailed the team asking for music preferences, but she had forgotten the Pink Floyd I requested. She played Steve […]
As I nudged my golf ball off its tee, the ship swayed ever so slightly to the right, correcting my bad putt and depositing the ball neatly in the hole nine levels above the sea. I looked around me and the metropolis of Durban, from which we were departing, started to appear more and more […]

I have always wanted to meet Lady Liuwa so I must admit to a touch of celebrity fever as we approached her and 4 other lions sheltering in the scant shade offered by a patch of shrubs. She’s clearly an older lady now, what with that gaunt face and sunken eyes, but she still has […]
Unusual? Certainly. Ground breaking? Definitely. You see, at Botswana’s Chobe Game Lodge, every field guide is a woman. It’s refreshing really. Congregating in the lounge for their afternoon game drive, guests gather camera equipment and don sun hats before walking to the open game drive vehicles to meet the khaki-clad ladies. Every “Chobe Angel” is […]
As we lined up for the canopy tour, one of my fellow flyers asked our guide, ‘On a scale of one to white water rafting, how scary is this?’ I laughed because I didn’t understand her question. Yet. Not far away, another group lined up for the gorge swing. Hysterical screams echoed across the Batoka […]

The island nation of São Tomé & Príncipe is the second smallest country in Africa, but its size belies a natural bounty and a complex yet fascinating history. The islands are one of West Africa’s most important nesting sites for turtles. Nine hundred species of vascular plants take root here, and a great variety of […]
As a model and photographer I lived in New York City for 13 years and never visited the Statue of Liberty. I returned home to Cape Town 19 years ago and over an amazing 4 days in December I was able to experience the mother city as a visitor for the first time. I kicked […]
In February 2015, five rangers from Chad’s Zakouma National Park and the operations manager of DRC’s Garamba National Park will travel to the Ennedi Plateau to run the gruelling Le Treg ultramarathon. Their number is significant as they run in memory of six Zakouma rangers killed by poachers in 2012. Jean Labuschange, previously a volunteer […]
Photographic encounters at the very heart of Africa.
I was enthusiastic about the Africa Geographic team’s bid to get me twitching because they weren’t so mischievous as to give me a rare bird challenge. The list was compiled to demonstrate the diversity and splendour of the region’s birds and there was the added prospect of seeing many lifers. I began preparing by searching […]
