African wildlife is iconic. The photos in these galleries are part of an ongoing project to capture intimate portraits of African wild animals and their natural environments. Wildlife in Africa is under threat, and many of the animals represented here are highly vulnerable. This is due to poaching and loss of habitat. I took these photos during self-organized photo safaris to national parks, game reserves and conservation areas in Uganda and Namibia. Both countries are ideal for photographing iconic African wildlife. And their habitats also make for great landscape photography.
