Discover Africa Safaris

One of the joys of working in the travel industry is getting to know people who are truly passionate about Africa. Not only is our continent arguably the most beautiful and thrilling, we have abundant wildlife and flora found nowhere else on the planet. There is something so special about Africa, and in order to preserve its natural bounty for future generations, we have to raise awareness about the value and importance of conservation.

We believe that one of the roles of a wildlife and nature photographer is to showcase a subject from a unique perspective, to allow others to share in the joy and moments that are part and parcel of the occupation. One such photographer is British-born Margot Raggett, who has dedicated her life to capturing African landscapes and animals and sharing these with the world.

Margot is an award-winning wildlife photographer who’s passion for Africa began on a trip to Kenya. The sheer beauty of the Masai Mara was the turning point in her career. In addition to her stunning shots, Margot began the Remembering Wildlife project, a charity that focuses on industry collaboration in order to combat poaching on the continent. The book series features a collection of wildlife photography by some of the best photographers in the world, including Margot’s work. Past themes include Remembering Elephants, Remembering Rhinos and the highly anticipated Remembering Great Apes which will be available in 2018. The series has been an overwhelming success, with much support from celebrities and fellow photographers.

It’s people like Margot Raggett who are changing the landscape of conscious travel, which is incredibly valuable for Africa as a whole. We’ve compiled five of our favourite shots to bring in 2018. Take a look:
