Here is a gallery of some of the animalscapes that we, the authors of the Photographer's Guide to the Greater Kruger National Park, have captured on our many visits to the world-famous Kruger National Park.

It's relatively easy to capture portraits of animals but there are already so many portrait images of animals.

Landscape images, however, are a lot harder to capture but when you add an interesting subject, an ordinary landscape becomes a much more impressive 'animalscape'. 

So, with an animalscape, it's not the animal nor the landscape by itself that are special, but the combination of the subject in its natural surrounds that makes for an impressive animalscape. 

If you struggle to find and create good animal-scapes on your safaris, then this eBook is for you!

We have been visiting the Kruger Park for more than twenty years and capturing eye-catching animalscapes can be challenging! In this eBook we provide all our tips and techniques on how to best capture striking animalscapes in the Kruger Park.

The majority of these animalscape images were captured on self-drive safaris, on normal tourist roads, when we were on our vacations, which are anything from a few days over a long weekend, to annual holidays of 14-17 days duration. We also captured some of the images from inside the camps and lodges.

"...the majority of images are really impressive, each chosen for a practical reason, sometimes annotated to stress a point.

The authors clearly know what they are doing. For decades they have mapped their sightings, and in explaining how they achieved their images, they’re sharing invaluable tips on understanding wildlife behavior, reading the signs and getting yourself in the best position for the shot. 
There is a phenomenal wealth of information here; real substance."

We have made use of all focal lengths for our animalscapes; if the subject is close then we'll use a wideangle lens, if it's far away we'll use our 150-600mm telephoto zoom lens - the key is to show the animal in the landscape or the landscape with the animal in it; whichever way you want to look at it!
