The Rose’s on Safari

Stuart and Michelle Rose recently stayed in Tree Camp and I was fortunate enough to bump into them while they were on their village walk with Linah. We got chatting and I was able to view some of Stuart’s photographs that he had taken that morning on game drive with Dean Smithyman and Elmon Mhlongo. These specific pictures were of Nyaleti Young Female and Gowrie Male mating and after only seeing a few of them I knew that I had to see more. Stuart was happy for me to look through more of his pictures later on that day and so without further delay I present them to you.

Enjoy…

    These shots are wonderful and really captured the personalities of the people in the village and of the animals. I would love to know what camera equipment Stuart used for these shots please.

    Many thanks, lets see some more of these!
