Behind The Frame: Nakuru Fever

Andrew Beck Andrew Leave a Comment

Our Big Cats and Tuskers safari guests are currently exploring Kenya’s Lake Nakuru, and incredible destination with photographic opportunities around every corner.

One of the most noticeable features of the region, given that the vast majority of flamingo’s have moved to the shallower lakes to the north, are the fever trees.

Its no secret that I’m obsessed with fever trees and thats probably why I love this destination so much.

I love to photograph animals in their environment and, with a forest of fever trees dominating the lake shores, this really is a destination where you can find your background and simply wait for a subject, be it a buffalo, rhino, lion, leopard or giraffe to appear.

The sheer size and scale of these Fever Tree forests is something to behold.

So, there are destinations that simply lend themselves to including a bit more of the environment, even when you have Africa’s iconic predator in your frame.

This was exactly the case for our guests on yesterday afternoon’s game drive.

Very few people can tell you what their passion in life is. Even fewer will be able to tell you that what they do for a living is in fact their passion. My love for the bush and conservation took me on journey which would not only allow me to explore the continent which fascinates me so much, but to share my passion for photography and conservation with others.
