Phil and Dawn Judd are no strangers to Africa. Living in England, they first visited Londolozi in early 2012 and have returned at least six times since their initial visit. Earlier this year we featured Phil’s images on our blog, and with their return to us in July, we have had the pleasure of once again browsing through his photographs.
“We have only visited Londolozi in summer, which we love because the area is so green,” says Phil. This is their first visit to Londolozi in winter and they’ve really enjoyed the change of scenery. “I love the soft light and colours of winter, especially for taking photographs. Animals blend in beautifully to their surrounds.”
Asked what they love most about the reserve, Phil is quick to respond, “First and foremost it is the variety of animals to be found. There is nothing that Londolozi does not have! Second, must be the staff. We love to return to the people we love, to the Londolozi family. “
Phil shoots with a Nikon D4 with a 600 mm lens. Below is a compilation of some of our favourite photographs from his visits in 2012 and 2013. Enjoy…
And when will Phil and Dawn return? “I think we’ll book our next trip for spring in 2015, it’s another season that we have yet to experience!”
