Simon, your photos are breathtaking! Well done. For me, I like to be on safari always, so give me a season, I’ll be there….

Simon–this blog is one of the most awesome blogs I have ever seen. Thank you so much for the rhino picture. They are my very favorite animal on this planet, along with the rest of the wild world. For my 3rd visit, I am coming in September. This is my favorite month, although last March was pretty spectacular too. Any season is a good one.

I do believe June through to September are the best for the lack of mozzies, but the bush is great any time of the year. I love your Rhino pic but the rest are spectacular too. Thank you Simon & enjoy the weekend 🙂

Great photos especially the opening Rhino shot, for such an iconic animal they seldom produce great photos

Thank you all! Some amazing opportunities of late. Every season has its merits but this time for me is the ultimate!

Beautiful, beautiful photos !! I would grab any opportunity to visit the bush, no matter what season, although Jun-Aug is my best! Love the cubs playing in the river bed.

I agree with what the others have said – absolutely beautiful pictures! We are dreaming of the day we will return! I do have one question – I have read that many places are no longer showing pictures of rhinos (or at least not current pictures) to not give away the location due to poaching, has this been something that you have considered doing? I absolutely love rhinos and certainly enjoy seeing the pictures, I just worry for their safety.
Thank you,
Amy
p.s. I suspect you have thought of this since I know you also love the animals – just wanting to hear your thoughts.
