10 Wildlife Photos Certain To Make You Plan a Trip to the African Bush

Comments Off on 10 Wildlife Photos Certain To Make You Plan a Trip to the African Bush




These images taken in South Africa caught our attention whether it was because they were the most striking or in some cases more unusual. Although it is summer and the bright colours of the bush and its greenery stand out in some of the images, there are also a few monochrome pictures that seemed to be popular with the photographers who took them.

There is a mix of subjects from elephants, lions, leopard, zebra, cheetah, a beautiful weaver, a giraffe drinking water with perfectly captured water droplets and my personal favourite, elephants walking along the road taken from Ximpalapala Koppie. Enjoy!
