Why I Go to Africa and Why I Love it 8/13

by david on July 18, 2018

A few general reasons:

Africa is an adventure.  You never know what is around the next corner when you are in Africa. I go to hunt, but this is a plus for the photographer as well. Not knowing what the hunting gods (or photography gods) are going to reveal to you on any given day is titillating, to say the least. Think about it for a minute. In North America you can at best expect to see maybe eight different large mammals (deer x 2, bear x 2, elk, pronghorn, bison, and wolves) in one place in one day. When I think of one small country in Africa (Namibia), I come up with 30 pretty easy … including 10 that can quickly kill you (6 will eat you too), 14 antelope, and 6 others. That is just critters, no birds, bugs, or vegetation included in that. Africa is still one of Mother Nature’s show places.
