  • All eyes on Africa - a photographer's guide

    Our expert photographer, Peter Lemon, has just returned from another successful trip to Africa. He gives us some handy hints for taking photos on safari, and also provides some of his favourite snaps:

    Cheetahs often get a hard time from other animals such as lions, hyenas and leopards, who - at the least - will seek to steal their kills. Even jackals can be a major irritant. This cheetah cub had finally had enough of the relentless barking, and sought refuge from the noise a little above ground level.
