Central Kalahari Game Reserve, Botswana: For those wildlife photographers, the thirst for finding the best shots never cease. So, here is another reserve which is best for wildlife photography. Central Kalahari Game Reserve in Bostwana is the perfect spot for the wildlife photography lovers. This park is home to South African Giraffe, bush elephant, white rhino, cape buffalo, spotted hyena, brown hyena, honey badger, meerkat, yellow mongoose, warthog etc. The landscape is another remarkable feature of this region.

Antarctica: Trips aboard expedition vessels typically depart from Patagonia with some departures accompanied by TV cameramen or ‘celebrity’ photographers such as Chris Packham and Mark Carwardine. It’s worth researching who will be joining your trip to make your decision. Zodiac boats take you on snowshoeing excursions, while evenings might see you attending fascinating onboard lectures. Every ship offers viewpoints on deck from where you might see whales, penguins and huge seal colonies.

I believe transparency is super important with my customers, and so I will soon be setting up a new page on my website illustrating the causes that we will be supporting including the total amount of donations that have been made through product purchases by customers! Between now and the 10th of January, all profits from sales made on my website will be donated to the emergency fund at WIRES (NSW Wildlife Information, Rescue and Education Service Inc.) which is being used to help rescue sick, injured, or orphaned wildlife affected by the ongoing bushfires.
My fascination for the natural world started at a very early age, and my love of animals has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. During my senior years at Birkenhead High School for Girls (2006- 2013), I developed a deep passion for drawing and painting, and art became the central focus of my studies. I was truly inspired by wildlife artists such as David Shepherd and Jason Morgan, and wildlife art became the main theme of all my work. Discover more info at vlgstudios.com.
