Black and White Safari Photos at Kwandwe (Part 2)

Here are some more images from my amazing few days at Kwandwe Private Game Reserve. Much thanks to my guides: ex-cricketer turned-excellent Ranger, Robyn; and my tracker, Ernie. They showed me everything from aardvarks to aardwolf (the latter being more rare than the black rhino).

I found myself particular charmed by the grace of a giraffe family and the offbeat cuteness of the warthogs.

All elephants are charming. The babies especially so

White rhinos are more common that the much-hunted black rhino, but just as stunning

Black and White Mobile Photography: “Hipstamatic safari”

Photo Tip: Mobile photography is not ideally suited for the long-lens needs of a photo safari, but is great for capturing details of a day in the life. I found Hipstamatic and Nightcap to me the 2 apps I used most often.

Night Ranger. I was bummed I didn’t have “Sister Christian” on my iPod to rock out to after I took this picture on last night’s nocturnal game drive. I got the shot using my iPhone and the NightCap app .
