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!!
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!
After spending 2 of the last 3 years travelling across the wilder areas of Africa (the remaining time spent doing the same in Australia & North America), I've developed a handful of awesome expedition-style trips to showcase the real magic of Africa...
