Southern Africa provides an unparallel opportunity to slip into the past. Large game reserves let us experience Africa as we think of it – an untamed land populated by exotic animals. Although this is far from the reality of Africa, let me share my pictures with you of a land that soon may be lost. Visit with me the magnificent animals that now roam these game reserves, the last islands of “old Africa”.
The pictures in this section were taken in four game reserves in Botswana and Zambia. Both countries have taken major steps to protect their native wildlife. However an ever increasing population places a greater demand for the scares revenues of the government and pose a constant threat to the continuation of conservation efforts.
Pictures were taken with a Cannon Rebel xti using a Cannon 100-400mm zoom l type lens or a Cannon EFS 17-85 mm lens.
