Here is your opportunity to share your stories...

many visitors to Big-5 African game reserves take great animal or landscape pictures but then never look at them or share them – the pictures remain on a computer or DVD for years – WHAT A WASTE!!

If you love wilderness areas, wildlife photography and African safaris then you have agreat opportunity to share your passion as these safari travellers have done:

Tony Proud and his wonderful Safari Treasures!

Wayne Duke and his amazing Our Etosha Adventure!

We will add to the above Travellers' Tales as and when you send us your stories and images!

There are a few options for people, who return from their Big-five African photo safari, to display their creative talents:

- Have just the best pictures printed in postcard size and put them into an album, which you leave in your lounge for visitors to look at.

- Print a few of the best pictures on A4, A3 or even A3+ photo paper and have them framed and then hang on your walls.

- sell your photographs!

- Put the best photographs into a folder on your computer and then link this to your screensaver.

- Have your favorite photgraph as your computer desktop background.

- Enter your best photographs into photo contests such as the SANParks photo of the month or the BBC Wildlife Photographer of the year.

- Share your favorite photographs and stories with other people that visit this web site and get comments/feedback from them:

After a good day’s game viewing people gather around the campfire and relive the animal sightings of the day and reminisce about their unforgettable experiences…

• Perhaps you’ve had a good or bad experience?

"It's 764 pages of the most amazing information. It consists of, well, everything really. Photography info...area info...hidden roads..special places....what they have seen almost road by road. Where to stay just outside the information. It takes quite a lot to impress me but I really feel that this book, which was 7 years in the making, is exceptional."            - Janey Coetzee, South Africa
