Big Cat Safari – South Africa
2024 is the year for the once in a lifetime South African Big Cat safari! – Lions, white lions, tigers, cheetahs and leopards. All in one go! Interested? South Africa is home to some of the most iconic big cats in the world, including lions, white lions, tigers, leopards, cheetahs, and jaguars. These majestic creatures play an essential role in the African ecosystem and are also a popular tourist attraction.
Tigers are found exclusively in Asia. The tigers at Tiger Canyon, South Africa were originally introduced from zoos and sanctuaries worldwide. They were carefully selected for their genetic diversity and their ability to adapt to the African climate. The tigers were then released into a large fenced enclosure, where they could learn to hunt and survive in the wild.
Over the years, the tigers at Tiger Canyon have thrived. They have bred successfully and produced several generations of wild-born cubs. The tigers now roam freely in the reserve, hunting and living as they would in the wild
Expedition Travellers is a renowned company that offers photography workshops worldwide, including in South Africa. Their Big Cats of South Africa Photography Workshop is an excellent opportunity for photographers of all levels to learn how to capture stunning images of lions, leopards, and cheetahs in the wild.
Greece (Lake Kerkini)
Lake Kerkini in northern Greece is an artificial lake that was created as early as 1932. The lake has since become one of Greece’s absolute top birdwatching locations. The lake’s position coincides with the migratory routes of many bird species and both the lake and the surrounding area attract a variety of birds and other animals all year round but we are there to primarily photograph perhaps the most famous of them all. The dalmatian pelican is one of the world’s largest flying birds with a wingspan of up to 3.5 meters.
Of course, we can’t control the weather, but we hope for a lot of snow, cold conditions and maybe even some ice on the lake.
