AfricaRAW is a wildlife photography site.

The title reflects the rawness of Africa as well as the fact we photograph in the RAW digital format. It shows our pictures of mammals, birds, reptiles, & landscapes taken in South Africa, Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Zambia, Malawi, & Tanzania. We also have pages with advice on photography, travel, & 4WD. These we will slowly fill with tips extracted from our experiences in Africa. We hope the photographs inspire, and the tips help other African travelers & especially "old age adventurers" who are contemplating wildlife photographic safaris in Africa after retiring.

Our wildlife photographic galleries from our 3-4 month self drive photographic safaris to game parks in SA, Namibia, & Botswana from 2012 to 2015 are complete.

In 2016 our 3 month trip to game parks in South Africa, Botswana, & Namibia was arranged to follow  the 50th  graduation reunion at Wits Medical School in Johannesburg. Marianne & I then travelled, alone as usual in our  middle aged but trustworthy Landcruiser 76SW,  to spend  from February to the end of April  in the game parks. We first visited the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park for one month. Then  we entered Namibia, via KTFP's Mata Mata border post,  & travelled to Etosha National Park for more than a month. We returned to SA via The Trans Kalahari Highway to have our first & unfortunately  brief stay at Pilanesburg Game Reserve.  

We are now back in NL & have for the first time started to post our photographs in Facebook. We are also very busy editing & culling the many photos from our 2016 photographic safari. We will start posting these in our "2016 Photographic Safari" folder in our portfolio over the next weeks

This lioness (Panthera leo) wanted to drink from the fresher water in the trough without getting dirty in the surrounding mud. After much hesitatuin and growling she jumped. She misjudged it. (panthera leo) (panthera leo)
