Photo by @yswildlifephotography "color is descriptive. black and white is interpretive" - elliott erwitt.
when you look at this shot - what do you see first - the colorful lilac breasted roller or the blurry zebra? or maybe the rock that the bird is standing on?
this will be my last post for now, as i’m heading back to kenya with another group. they’re all excited to witness the great wildebeest migration and see as many big cats as possible - wish us luck! i’ll try to share some special moments on my story.

We watched Luluka the leopard disappear into the bushes of the closed area, and decided to leave her alone and continue on our game drive. We were the only car that was left in the area, and our guide Dominick, for a reason that he can’t explain, decided to turn around and go back to where we came from. Suddenly, he spotted her again, only this time she wasn’t alone- she carried one of her newborn cubs in her mouth. She walked with it towards our car, until she found a warthog burrow, where she squeezed herself into and disappeared into the ground with her cub...
This is just another moment from last week that explains why I keep coming back to Kenya - Mother Nature never ceases to surprise us!  If you'd like to join me on an African safari or inquire regarding prints, please click on the link in my profile.

Just another magical moment from our safari in Kenya a week ago. It’s the kind of moment words can not describe. You have to be there in person to fully understand the magnitude of this wild beauty. 
The moment we noticed the rainbow in the sky, we left the herd of wildebeest we were following and rushed to the family of cheetahs in the open plains, hoping they’re still there, and that the rainbow will stay. And so, we got to see them as they “admired” the rainbow, as they were getting wet from the rain, and as they chased each other with a beautiful African sunset behind them. This is why we love Kenya so much and keep coming back there...

Today is World Elephant Day.
Elephants show us some of the best human qualities like empathy, social intelligence, patience and compassion, but many humans show them some of the worst of humans’ behavior like greed, cruelty and selfishness. 
I believe that it is not too late, and we can still turn it around and save the elephants from extinction, mostly by educating each other and the younger generation that elephants’ tusks have no place in our home and should stay where they belong – with the elephants.

This is it! Lion cub selfie! My favorite encounter from my last safari, and my last post for now as I’ll be leading another group of adventurers in Kenya.
You can see the bigger picture and the story behind the shot on my Facebook page, and I’ll post many more shots from this encounter in the near future. Until then, any thoughts how to caption this cutie-pie? Taken at Olare Motorogi, Kenya.

The things you’ll do when you got an itch (in this case, climb up a tree to get the best chin-scratcher branch). Taken while staying at the beautiful @enkewacamp - Masai Mara, Kenya.

Not every sunset in Africa is the “perfect sunset”, but even the ones that are covered with clouds, can produce special moments. Taken at Ol pejeta, Kenya.

Smile! Just two more days to the weekend! (And 4 more days till I head back to Kenya!). This beautiful smile belongs to the endangered Grevy’s zebra, and it was taken in Samburu, Kenya.

Just got back from another amazing safari with so many special sightings and memories that will stay with us forever. But as great as the sightings were, the people that joined us on this trip were what made this a truly wonderful and fun safari. 
First post is of this gorgeous Serval cat. I have seen quite a few Serval cats in my travels, but have never seen one with such beautiful blue eyes. Hope you like it!
