MIZARU, KIKAZARU, IWAZARU

 

A journey to the End of the World or to be precise The Shiretoko Peninsula in Japan!  If you are intrigued by the little visited wildlife of Japan this is the talk for you!   Starting in the Nagano Alps we spent three days watching the wild Japanese Macaques in remote Jiguokudani also known as Hell's Valley.  Sleeping in the forest at night they visit the park daily to bathe in the volcanic hot spring pools thus escaping the winter snow.  Reluctantly we flew to Hokkaido to see the revered Japanese Tancho, the Red-crowned Crane and then spent four days out on the pack ice with the magnificent Steller's Sea-eagles.  An entirely different perspective on life with stunning scenery too.

WALK ON THE WILDSIDE

 

Sunrises once experienced in Africa are seldom forgotten! This talk takes you on safari to Kenya first to the northern lands of Samburu National Park full of endangered species such as Grevys Zebra and then south to Lake Nakuru where 2 million flamingos feast on the soda lake. This is also your chance for leopard, white rhino and some of the 350 birds seen in Kenya. After the break a quick rest at Lake Naivasha Lodge for beautiful malachite and pied kingfishers, the mighty African fish eagle and then we journey to the Maasai Mara for big cats including Honey the Cheetah and her cubs and the spectacular migration!

 

FROM THE FURNACE TO THE FREEZER: YELLOWSTONE IN WINTER

 
                                     

From  the mists of autumn and frolicking otters in the Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming followed by geysers spouting and mudspots gurgling in the stunning Yellowstone National Park, we move to the dramatic winter of 2017, the coldest winter in twenty years for stark landscapes, lone trees, frosty bison and bobcat!!

ZIMANGA! SOMETHING AMAZING!

 
         

Zimanga! The Zulu word for something amazing! This was a fantastic experience. Getting up at 0515 is no hardship when you know that you will soon be driving out in the dark before dawn.  Who knows what you will see?  Maybe two Male lions padding along quietly in front or maybe it will take an hour and a half to find the pride before staying with them to watch and photograph while the cubs romp around. The heffalumps and white rhino are truly magnificent and the wild dogs  are  fascinating.  Add beautiful golden-breasted buntings, black crakes, jacana, pied kingfishers to the mix and you have a wonderful insight into the true South African bush.
