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!!
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!
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.
Testimonial: "The Authentic African Experience" by Critty Wallace
Africa Overland Trip, Namibia to Zambia (Jul/Aug 2017)
"What Shane gave us on our journey through Africa was so much more than we could ever have imagined (expected)... Far more than just a tour guide, Shane shares a passion and connection with the landscape and its animals, and will truly give you the authentic African experience... wild camping, African-style cooking and an experience that caters to you."
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...
"It was like a Nat Geo documentary was unfolding right before our eyes... except, there was no TV between us and the action." This story recounts moments from our Great Migration experience in Africa last year, and the range of safaris we now offer around the world.
