“There is no passion to be found in settling for a life that is less than the one that you are capable of living.” – Nelson Mandela
We’re half-way through a lengthy 18-hour stretch in a hide in the bush in South Africa’s game-rich KwaZulu-Natal province. It’s midnight, pitch-black, and we’re still at our posts. You need to suffer for your art, right?
If this is suffering, bring it on. We’re in comfy, executive-style chairs, cameras secure on sturdy tripods, washing down chicken pies from the reserve’s lodge, reheated in the microwave here, with a couple of cold beers from the fridge, while checking our email and catching up on world news. Yes, this hide even has wi-fi and the connection’s way faster than at home.

Everyone knows about this amazing continent’s diverse wildlife and dramatic landscapes, but fewer people know about its islands and pristine coastlines. Jasreen Mayal Khanna gives you her list of the best spots to soak up the African sun
Wildlife photographer Lou Coetzer was so excited about his recent visit to the Serengeti that we asked him to share some of his images. In particular he enthused about how zebras seemed so much more astute about the river crossings than the wildebeest. And, of course, great big cat sightings… Capturing such moments on camera well requires great technical skill, and Lou is a master.
