When cheetah cubs are two months old they are irresistible to watch. Siblings are sparring partners around the clock. But the odds against their survival are not as appealing. More than half of all cheetah cubs do not survive their first four weeks of life and most of the rest do not make it beyond their first year. Cheetahs can’t climb trees like leopards, they can’t dig burrows like hyenas, and they’re not social like lions, so they are always vulnerable no matter where they are. When we worked with cheetah families in the wild we were always concerned about their safety, yet we could not interfere in their individual lives. But we can contribute to their survival as a species. . Photo by @FransLanting . Reposted from @franslanting .

Tramonto africano, Chobe River National Park, Botswana 🇧🇼 Fare un'escursione in vaporetto sul fiume Chobe è un'esperienza da fare assolutamente almeno una volta nella vita. Per me è stato un crescendo di emozioni. Elefanti che pascolavano e si rinfrescavano nelle distese di erba paludosa, ippopotami pacificamente a mollo nel fiume, bufali con la pancia piena sdraiati a riposare con tanti uccellini sul dorso, waterbuck al pascolo con lo sguardo all'erta, coccodrilli in riva al fiume, e ancora scimmie, aquile pescatrici e moltissime altre specie di uccelli che di questo paradiso hanno fatto la loro casa. E lo spettacolo è proseguito con un tramonto strepitoso dal battello. Che colori, che poesia! #cool_universe  #your_best_shots #definitelytrythis #happiness #colors #vibes #reflection #reflectiongram #earth_reflect #throwback #nikonworld #natgeoafrica #igersafrica #igersbotswana #nationalpark #safari #globalcapture #world_shotz #igerstravel #aroundtheworldpix #viaggiare #traveling #ourplanetdaily #naturephotography #ig_landscape #landscapephotography #landscape_captures #sunset #sunset_madness

“Camouflaged”. As a lover of wildlife photography it’s easy to focus on big cats , elephant etc. But sometimes it’s the simplest things, often hidden in plain sight, which provide the inspiration to compress the shutter! #africanbirds #wildlifeshots #wildography #onlyafrica #photographicsafari #africanbush #africageographic #sabisands #safariphoto #safariphotography #ig_birdlovers #natgeoafrica #krugerthroughmyeyes #africaamazing #itsallaboutthewildlife #africageo #africanwildlifephotography #wildafrica #wildography #birdsofafrica #birdsofsouthafrica #wildlifeshots #wildlifeaddict #safariphoto

INTO THE WILD, IN THE MOST ENCHANTING AND DARING EDEN ON EARTH: THE OKAVANGO DELTA AND ITS UNDERWORLD.✨ . Beneath the stunning surface lies a very perilous and complex ecosystem, an underwater jungle. Intricate in many ways, even in the way it forms! . 👉🏻 Every year, rains descending from Angola's eastern highlands, flow through a corner of Namibia into nothern Botswana. Here, the river runs wide and deep in a corridor like region referred to as the "Panhandle" until reaching Seronga, where it develops into a fan shaped Delta. . 🌿At this stage, the Okavango water spills creating a true natural wonderland... Numerous channels, lagoons, oxbow lakes, flooded glasslands and thousands of islands providing home to one of the greatest concentration of wildlife on earth. . 🚣‍♀️The locals cross it on canoes made out of hollowed tree trunks referred to as "mokoros" always gliding silently through the water without disturbing the life beneath. Some even dare more... in the last two years some heroic film makers have embarked on very dangerous expeditions to bring the surface its unknown underworld. . What makes it so dangerously attractive?💫 . 👉🏻Film makers and divers descending into it describe it as a mysterious underworld like submerging into a Monet painting full od colours blurred by continuous movements created by its currents. With papyrus afloat, creating spots of darkness they emerge from obscurity to find themselves in new openings and lagoons. . 🍃Very wild, yet very delicate, running a perfect natural equilibrium. Inhabiting it are about 35 milliom fish of about 80 species. Others, such as hippos, play a very important role in the formation of underwater tunnels. These arteries serve as vital transport of water between the outer floodplains and the deeper main channel. . It is also a very hazardous habitat, home to some 3,000 nile crocodiles, one of the most dangerous species known to men. A very interesting observation put forward by people who venture in its waters is that, on land, these crocodiles never allow humans to get close to them, while it happens underwater!🌊 . #kalahariluxurytravel #botswana #okavangoriver

Some of my shots from the first shoe drop we did, @putfootfoundation assists thousands of school children in Africa who cannot afford to buy shoes. The mission is to create hope, pride and dignity through a pair of brand new quality South African-made school shoes. Another primary objective behind the foundation is the conservation and protection of endangered animals such as the rhino. As we wind our way around Africa on the @putfootrally we continue to drop shoes at certain check points and I am so honoured to be able to meet the beautiful young souls who are receiving them. Africa you have my heart, you always have. . . . . #putfootrally2019 #putfootrally #putfootfoundation #charity #conservation #wildlife #africa #travel #travelafricastory #childrenofafrica #natgeo #natgeoyourshoot #natgeoafrica #seekadventure #photography #photographer

Buffalo stampede, I think this is a great shot showing just how effective lions use of stampeding buffalo is as a hunting tactic. Splitting the herd and then able to single out the weak and calves. This shot was taken in the Gusu forest near Hwange Main Camp, lions had pushed the herd into the forest and soon took down an unsuspecting cow.

No filter needed for this shot. As the national parks in Namibia close after sunset, we decided to spend one night inside Etosha. Spent hours watching animals arrive and leave the Halali Camp’s water hole at night, and we were so lucky to see the extinct black rhinos! 🦏⁣ —————⁣ Namibya’da milli parklar gün batımı ile kapanıyor, bu nedenle biz de bir gecemizi parkın içerisindeki Halali Camp’te geçirmeye karar verdik. Güneşin batışından gece yarısına kadar burada oturup, su birikintisine hayvanların toplanışını izledik. Görmeye alıştığımız filler, çakallar ve zebralar dışında dünyada sayılı kalan gergedanları da görme fırsatımız oldu! 🦏 ⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ #halalicamp #bigfive #africa #visitafrica #visitnamibia #namibya #seyahat #reisen #adventuretravel #natgeoafrica #abenteuer #abenteuerurlaub #afrika #etosha #waterhole #sunset #nofilter #iphonography #nature #wildlifephotography #wildlife #travelinnamibia #gamedrive #wheretotravel #ig_namibia #igersafrica #igersnamibia #seyahatblogger #travelblogger #bugunnereyegidelim

A young male from the local Western Pride scratching on a Mopane tree.

A tender moment between a San Tribeswoman and her baby ❤️ During my stay at N/a’ankuse I had the honour of spending some time with the wonderful San people. ⁣ ⁣ *“Conversation, story-telling, joking, music and sacred dances form an intrinsic part of community life. Women are greatly respected and have a high status in San society, often leading family groups.⁣ ⁣ They display a beautiful trend often forgotten in modern cultures – that of family and community being the most vital part of life.⁣ ⁣ N/a’ankusê have set up the Ancient San Skills Academy, a traditional San village, tucked away in the bush that makes up the reserve. San families base themselves in this traditional village for set periods, giving San children, otherwise living in the Western world and being fully influenced by a modern culture, the opportunity to experience their fascinating, intrinsic heritage – learning and strengthening the skills and language that their forefathers have tried so desperately to maintain.”⁣ *Extract from Africa Geographic. ⁣ #sanbushmen #namibia #families #motherandchild #earthoffline #raw_community #raw_africa_ #tribeswomen #childrenoftheworld #lifethroughmylens #natgeoafrica #africaamazing#families #familybond #babiesofafrica #babiesoftheworld #natgeoyourshot #earthfocus #humanity_shot_

It is difficult to spot rhinos. And when you do spot them, remember they get frightened very easily and their instinct is to charge directly at whatever is threatening to them. We were charged at twice by this fellow during our game drive in Mara. Was it a scary moment? I would have said no, but unfortunately there are two witnesses @percyfernandezj and @jonathannaurori #masaimara #rhino #rhinoceros #rhinocharge #animalshots #wildlifephotography #wildlife #wildlifeconservation #animalselite #itssokenya #magicalkenya #naturehub #naturettl #jambo #tembeakenya #wildlifeinspired #wildplanet #natgeoafrica #naturegram #greengrammers #wildafrica #animalshots #animals #bbcearth #canonme #pawstrails @africanwildlifefoundation @discoverafricawildlife

In over 30,000 years of existence, Egypt never expanded its main territories or set out to conquer any other peoples or lands. All citizens had rights and there was not a single record found relating any religious intolerance. Women enjoyed freedoms and status that no later age would credit them, and there is no record of any sexual criminality or abuse of women coming out of Egyptian history.#animals #africanwonders #wildlife #wild #instagram #wildlifeconservation #wildlifeonearth #wildlifeprotection #wildlifeaddicts #wildlifelovers #instawildlife #live_love_wildlife #wildlifeperfection #serengeti #africageophoto #natgeo #masaimara #etoshanationalpark #tanzania #wildlifeplanet #africanwildlifephotography #krugerexplorer #natgeoafrica #wildafrica #southafrica #africananimals #kenya #africanamazing #africageo1 .b

Fill your bowl to the brim and it will spill. Keep sharpening your knife and it will blunt. Chase after money and security and your heart will never unclench. Care about people's approval and you will be their prisoner. Do your work, then step back.

There are many levels of life which we cannot see and know, yet which certainly exist. There is a larger world, vast enough to include immortality.... Our spiritual natures belong to this larger world ... If death is apparently an outward fact, immortality is an inner certainty.#animals #africanwonders #wildlife #wild #instagram #wildlifeconservation #wildlifeonearth #wildlifeprotection #wildlifeaddicts #wildlifelovers #instawildlife #live_love_wildlife #wildlifeperfection #serengeti #africageophoto #natgeo #masaimara #etoshanationalpark #tanzania #wildlifeplanet #africanwildlifephotography #krugerexplorer #natgeoafrica #wildafrica #southafrica #africananimals #kenya #africanamazing #africageo1 .b

In shamanic societies symbols are the bridge between visible and invisible reality and are psychological mechanisms for transforming energy. These traditions believe that our own symbolic structures contain divine revelations. Journeys are seen as teaching tools that provide healing, teaching and visions. Each person is presented with what is spiritually needed. The journey may not include any experiences anticipated by the ego and its agenda , but the journey will always reveal the actual spiritual work desired within the individual's inherent psychomythology."#animals #africanwonders #wildlife #wild #instagram #wildlifeconservation #wildlifeonearth #wildlifeprotection #wildlifeaddicts #wildlifelovers #instawildlife #live_love_wildlife #wildlifeperfection #serengeti #africageophoto #natgeo #masaimara #etoshanationalpark #tanzania #wildlifeplanet #africanwildlifephotography #krugerexplorer #natgeoafrica #wildafrica #southafrica #africananimals #kenya #africanamazing #africageo1 .b

Before the Soul can hear, the image (man) must become as deaf to roarings as to whispers, to cries of bellowing elephants as to the silvery buzzing of the golden firefly. Before the soul can comprehend and may remember, she must unto the silent speaker be united just as the form to which the clay is modeled, is first united with the potter's mind. For then the soul will hear and will remember. And then to the inner ear will speak - The Voice of The Silence.#animals #africanwonders #wildlife #wild #instagram #wildlifeconservation #wildlifeonearth #wildlifeprotection #wildlifeaddicts #wildlifelovers #instawildlife #live_love_wildlife #wildlifeperfection #serengeti #africageophoto #natgeo #masaimara #etoshanationalpark #tanzania #wildlifeplanet #africanwildlifephotography #krugerexplorer #natgeoafrica #wildafrica #southafrica #africananimals #kenya #africanamazing #africageo1 .b
