From 7-16th August 2018, I hosted 3 eager nature-loving, adventure-seeking youngsters on a 10-day safari into world-famous Serengeti National Park... by the end of the trip, minds were blown, and expectations far exceeded - much to my absolute joy and relief as well :) read the Trip Report #1 for more stories about the experience, and be sure to follow me on Facebook "Shane Ross Photography" and Instagram "@shanerossphoto" for ongoing tales, photos and videos from this most epic adventure!!
Video recorded from my tent while camping in Moremi Game Reserve, Botswana, February 2016, of a lion roaring approx. every half hour and gradually getting closer to my camp. Spooky. He maaayy have come TO my tent, and laid outside it for 10 minutes...
When passing through a Roadhouse in southern Namibia, we met the family owners - and this cute baby Chacma baboon they were hand raising for eventual release back into his troop that live nearby. They were raising him because his mother was sadly killed by a passing car on the roads nearby.
But he would've been released by now, and no, he's not in an area to pose any risk to people. The troop live in remote Fish River Canyon, and these baboons are wild, free, and don't conflict with people.
In the days after a huge thunderstorm hit the Central Kalahari, Botswana, in March 2016, I became landlocked due to flooding all around my campsite... and the experience was 100% worth it!
The best part was seeing these beauties - Giant African Bullfrogs, 100s of them - emerge from what was dry ground and occupy any waterhole deep enough across the Phokoje Pan. But GEEEEZ were they were feisty fellas!
When you manage your own business, you pour everything you have into it to make it work... that means crazy long days back-to-back, and, for me, hiding away to focus and get sh*t done. So, from time to time – especially when the sea is flat outside – I take a morning off and go adventuring myself...
In October 2017, I was on the home straight after 5 months of self-drive Safari across Africa. Crossing through Botswana to see a final few Parks before returning home to Australia, I had my most intense photographic day yet - in the unassuming but sometimes chaotic Nxai Pans National Park.
From hearing the cheetah kill nearby to following the dove’s plummeting arc, the kamikaze goshawk and the 50 elephant bulls that came by that waterhole, it was an experience of a lifetime.
