First Place Wildlife: Mark Knott – This leopard was resting in a tree. As we quietly approached it slowly opened its eyes and stared directly at us. Those eyes seem to look right through you.Second Place Wildlife: Jamie Pham – This curious young mountain gorilla in Uganda’s Bwindi Impenetrable Forest surely knew how cute he was when striking this pose.Third Place Wildlife: Don Fishman – I took this photo at Tubu Tree Camp in the heart of Botswana’s Okavango Delta. The game viewing was incredible and we witnessed this spectacular moment of lion versus buffalo.
First Place Wildlife Babies: Chris Swindal – These tiny cheetah cubs were one of the highlights of my safari. We found them at Namiri Plains Camp, which is far away from any other camp, and we never saw another vehicle during the sightings.Second Place Wildlife Babies: Richard Berlin – A rare white lion cub spotted during a game drive from our camp, Ngala Tented Camp Game Reserve in the Kruger National Park, South Africa.Third Place Wildlife Babies: Darlene Knott – In the Maasai Mara, these two jackal puppies let curiosity get the better of them when they turned to stare inquisitively at the two of us snapping picture after picture of these adorable puppies!
First Place Scenery: Michael Rhine – Finding a lone wildebeest during the great migration is no easy task, but this one wandered alone onto the horizon during a sundowner on our first night in the Mara, providing a nice silhouette against the red sky.Second Place Scenery: Darlene Knott – The awe inspiring landscape of the Serengeti. We saw this tiny klipspringer, perched high atop the kopjes. What a magnificent scene, one I will never forget!Third Place Scenery: Kevin Allen – The Milky Way was bright as we walked back to our tent after dinner at Tortilis Camp Amboseli, Kenya.
First Place Clients on Safari: The Giraffe Manor in Nairobi, Kenya is the most magical place particularly for animal lovers like Lewis and Holly Quinn. ‘We love the conservation program here with the Rothschild giraffes.’Second Place Clients on Safari: In Mana Pools with guide Nick Murray, Ray and Barb Arvay have had many fantastic experiences. ‘This picture was taken after we had walked away and encountered the elephant standing on its hind legs to get a tree limb.’Third Place Clients on Safari: Our last evening at Somalisa Camp and sundowners. The ‘portrait’ says it all in terms of the success of the Wahlquist Family adventure. Egannia, who is on the right, was spectacular with the kids and they adored her.
First Place People of Africa: After a rewarding day volunteering at the Laghangareri Primary School, the Stephen Chernof family bids farewell. Lake Eyasi, Tanzania.Second Place People of Africa: Becky Douglas – During our Namibian safari we had the opportunity to meet some Himba during our visit at the Himba Living Museum. The moms gathered with their babies.Third Place People of Africa: Alex Kostich – Our guides got into the Christmas spirit and commandeered our Santa hats for the duration of our Christmas morning game drive. They provided a source of laughter and good cheer!
First Place Birds: Darlene Knott - The white-fronted bee eater is one of the most colorful birds of Africa. It’s fascinating watching them spot an insect, fly up from their perch, catch the flying insect and return to their perch.Second Place Birds: Chris Swindal - The white-backed vulture has a specialized beak that assists it on tearing apart animal carcasses. Naboisho Conservancy, Kenya.Third Place Birds: Michael Ferrucci - The fish eagles of Botswana are reminiscent of our American bald eagles. Their majestic wingspan, keen eyesight, and command of the sky left no doubt they don’t have any trouble finding food for their brood.
