Taking an image, freezing a moment, reveals how rich reality truly is.
At Safari Architects, we are in a very fortunate position as guides to be able to host our guests on journeys to some of the most beautiful places Africa has to offer. As all of our guests will know, we are extremely passionate about these ecosystems, the animals within them and about photographing them, both for our pleasure and for our clients. As a tribute, we are very happy to present our top 25 images, taken over the past 3 months, on safari with you! From the Lowveld of Southern Africa, to the wide open plains of East Africa, we have experienced a huge array of habitats and the incredible animals that inhabitat them.
Thank you to everyone who shared these magical moments with us on safari. It gives us great pleasure to be able to showcase these moments that will be cherished forever.
