Zimanga Game Reserve with Wildlife ACT

Since Monday I have been at Zimanga Private Game Reserve as a photographic volunteer with Wildlife ACT.  The primary focus on this reserve is monitoring and tracking wild dog and cheetah.  While the cheetah has remained elusive thus far, I have had the opportunity to spend some time with the pack of six wild dogs.  I’m having a brilliant time.  As it is very soon time for the afternoon monitoring session, this post will be brief; I wanted the chance though to share a few photos from the past days, as a hint of what is to come.

A bull elephant heading straight towards us on the road, while we drove in reverse!  He was completely cool with our presence, but was also on a mission along that road, so we had to get out of his way. 1/320sec, f8.0, ISO 200
