Wow some dream shots here. Outstanding work!

Thanks Kyle! We are getting excited about our upcoming trip and have been testing out our new equipment. If you could have one Canon RF zoom lens, what would it be? Thanks for sharing some fabulous and inspiring shots!

I am a passionate photographer of nature/ animals. So it’s good to know that one can rent a camera and lenses just in case one’s own equipment breaks down.

As one of the first users of Londolozi’s photo processing department, with a particular shout out to Alice Constantin, I encourage one and all to take advantage of this wonderful feature.

We’ll be there in just a few days and are hoping for some shots like these!

Kyle such beautiful photography. All the Rangers take outstanding photos. I must still purchase a long lens for my Nikon camera to be able to take such outstanding photos. Kyle would you say a 600 zoom lens is appropriate for wild life photography and bird photography.

Outstanding image examples you selected for this blog Kyle, as they’re quite inspiring for those of us who have a short window into the safari photography world. Photography is fun, challenging, frustrating, but most of all rewarding especially if you capture that perfect shot. I’m looking forward to more exciting sightings next year and hopefully will take away a few special memories on an sd card.

Kyle, thank you for the lessons on photography and the pre safari work one should put in to obtain great photographs. Good and great pictures take time and effort.

Awesome perspective and great insight as usual. Can’t wait to be with you and the animals and learn more from you. Love and hugs, Lucie and Bob

One of Londolozi’s greatest strengths is it’s camera culture , and these are superb images

Sometimes though , you just have to put the camera down . A few years ago in Kenya , a herd of elephants went round the vehicle I was in, and thus I was inside the herd.

I am pleased to say I have memories but no photos of this

I came to wildlife photography only a few years ago and because of my love of and addiction to safaris. And I discovered the joy of the storytelling aspect of photography!
