This week the theme is Close Up, a perfect opportunity to highlight some wildlife shots from my trip to Africa. In Namibia I was the guest of the , a luxury ship that offers remarkable access to wildlife. From the ship we visited nearby Chobe National Park in Botswana where we went on a game drive. Some of the photos below were taken either on the Zambezi Queen or on their game drive in Botswana. The rest were taken at the in Zimbabwe. The Stanley and Livingstone sits in the middle of a massive game reserve famous for their conservation work with the endangered black rhino. I have a lot more to say about both properties, but for now I hope you enjoy some of the wildlife I encountered while their guest.
