I am back in Kenya and sitting in my waterhole again looking for my free ranging lion cubs. You can follow the thread and keep updated on my progress here: http://www.facebook.com/greg.dutoit?ref=tn_tnmn

I have some really exciting news:
Do remember this photograph I took at the waterhole in Kenya? Well, I am going back to Kenya next week to go look for these young cubs. They will be 7 years old now and we will use their whisker patterns to identify them. A lion researcher and documentary filmmaker will be joining me on this wild adventure in Kenya's Rift Valley. So excited to look for my little cubs!

I have just updated my blog with a migration shot, but a migration of a different kind. Has anyone seen a photo like this before? I am hoping not :-)

So stocked to have booked a private safari with a Nat Geo photographer to Duba Plains in the Okavango Delta and Great White Sharks - at the BEST time of year too....

And so the week gets started by writing more captions for images. I think I spend more time writing captions than I do photographing?

I have heard that once you visit the Antarctica, you will never be the same. It is a wilderness wonder and you can photograph it on this 'Classic Antarctica' photo safari (including the Falklands and South Georgia):

It is that dreaded time of year again when my wife insists that I count how many nights I was away on safari during the past year? As it turns out, in 2012 I was away for 152 nights (not too bad hey?) While I was doing the dreaded count, I thought I would have some fun and count how many flights I took as well: 53 flights this year over 22 different safaris! And how many images did I get for all this travel you ask? Just 6 images! You might think this is ridiculous but remember that Ansel Adams, arguably the greatest nature photographer ever, had a famous quote: "12 significant images a year is a good crop!" Now to present the facts to the missus! Damn, should have got her a better Christmas present!

After visiting the tribes in the Southern Omo, the term 'drop lip' has a whole new meaning!

Ok, time to get serious. Off to the Southern Omo Valley and will be out of comms for a bit...

In Gondar, 'the Camelot of Ethiopia' at the moment and just back from the beautiful Simien Mountains. Please excuse the hack attempt at landscape photography but just wanted to share the beauty of the Simiens with you all...

Back in Addis after an epic exploration of the Bale Mountains. Altitude sickness is highly overrated! Hot water highly underrated (have not showered since Sunday, just to $#@^$ cold)! Bale Mountains are a wintery wonderland and such a privilege to see the world's most endangered carnivore (Ethiopian Wolf). Time for a shower and some curry, yum yum, then off to Simien Mountains tomorrow in search of Walia Ibex...

I am off to Ethiopia soon and I will be gone until after Christmas. This is then my last post for 2012 and it just happens to be one of my favourite images from the year.

Have a blessed holiday season everyone and to all you nature photographers out there, stay safe and shoot as if tomorrow you will be stricken blind...

Just picked up my copy of Africa Geographic! Great to see a awesome pic by legendary Kim Wolhuter and a stand up portfolio from Pete Oxford not to mention some blindingly sharp work from Cheryl-Samantha Owen! Nice work Sarah Borchert and team!

How about a Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater safari next year Feb to see the migration? We are staying in the finest Sanctuary Retreats accommodation!
It is good to book now and then you do not need to be bleak when the Christmas holidays end :-)

Just found out that the BBC Wildlife Magazine is read in print version by 268 000 people. Amongst the buzz of social media, that is still not bad for good old ink on paper hey?

You remember a couple of days ago I mentioned a leopard taking down an impala right next to our Land Rover? Well one of the guests on my predator photographic workshop, had her GoPro running! Check it out: LeopardKill

Just finishing up after a sublime 8 days on our Southern Africa predator workshop. The bush is looking truly beautiful with Tree Wisteria and Gardenia in full bloom. Avian Migrants trickling back and African Cuckoos calling everywhere. Also heard first Meitjie today! Bush-shrikes, Crombecs and Orioles breeding sterk! Spent am on Charleston and afternoon on Marthley, not another vehicle in sight. Have even had leopards mating 5 times and photographed backlit! Manyeleti males back after a long walk about and on a dead buffalo. View from Cambell Koppies looks like a golf course. Bliss in one of Africa's largest ecosystems...Thank you to Ian Weatherburn, Marius and Martha for sharing this special experience with me. Also, thank you to Wendy Anita Weatherburn for lending Ian to us. Africa flows through my veins... http://www.gregdutoit.com/index.php?page=links

Just back from Londolozi and safe to say, Africa blew me away yet again. best thing is that I am home long enough to actually unpack my toiletry bag!!!

After a few days at home editing, I have started counting my caffeine intake by pots and not cups. Bets I get out into the bush again...

I promised photos of the DC-3. This 1943 beauty was famously called the Dakota in World War 2 and since then she has affectionately been known as the Puffing Dragon, Bouncing Betty and the Gooney Bird! More notoriously as the Vomit Comet! She is my mode of transport for the next week on expedition with Nat Geo...

Only two nights into the expedition and already seen lion, buff, elie, leopard, rhino, wild dog and cheetah. Where else in Africa could you do that in two nights?

I very excited to be heading out tomorrow on a National Geographic Expedition. We have our own private World War 11 DC3 which I will post a pic of, as soon as I see the old bird for myself! Mala Mala, Tuli, Moremi, Chobe and Vic Falls are all stops along the way on our safari. Woohooo...

Busy looking at the logistics of my next trip whereby I will be an Expedition Manager for National Geographic Expeditions on their 'Southern Africa by Private Air' expedition. Blimey, sitting in my waterhole was easier! Wheels up on Friday!

I have the cover of Africa Geographic this month. It is a shot that I took in the Serengeti and wanting to show the vastness of the plains, I thought what better they, than to shrink an elephant in the landscape? I found this tree and then just waited...
