Madikwe game reserve in the North West Province has been my home for just over two years now and has provided me with ample awesome sightings and photo opportunities. Going on game drive is always exciting as you never know what you’ll encounter around the next corner. However, staying in camp can some days prove to be equally interesting, as the wildlife doesn’t always understand the concept of fences.
Summer is a great time for macro photography. After the first rains a great variety of insects and other little critters pop out everywhere. Extraordinary colours and lifeforms appear; butterflies around every puddle, tiny mantis, huge beetles, millipedes, scorpions and grasshoppers.
