Default Africa slide show

I hope this works! I've compiled some photos from my previous trips to Africa. I followed no timeline and opted to represent Africa the best I could for those interested in going there someday. My photos are from S. Africa and Namibia. I have yet to make it to the more tropical parts of the dark continent. I hope, with time, I have the chance! Africa is one of the most scenic places I have ever been. Some of the photos are digital photos of old paper photographs (I do not have a scanner) I've stored in albums-bear with the quality. You can tell by the smile on faces, this place is no doubt fun and adventurous! A must do for anyonewho gets a chance. Africa has changed my life!

Enjoy!

Man this slideshow is great, I am only like halfway through it but it is awesome. As of right now I am really considering your offer. And the live action shots you have on some of those animals are amazing in slow motion. Nice arrow placement btw. Good job so far man!!

That's Africa's version of a bobcat. It's called a caracal.

I love the shot with the aermotor, I never really thought of a windmill in africa. Is there very much underground water there?

Zach,

I would assume so. That photo was taken in the East Cape of S. Africa. Wateris very abundant; it flows freely everywhere(nearly impossible to hunt water holes). However, high on the mountain sides/tops, water is brought up from the ground. Much of what we hunted was still functioning cattle operations. The land is vast...

Amazing photos as always Will! Thank you for sharing them.

Africa is a place that I dream to go someday, but my father has absolutely no desire and after much internal debate I determined that I am not going to pass up a chance to hunt with him so that I can go there. I could not do a trip like that and still go on our annual trips and I value those higher than any trophy. Don't know why I shared that, but there you go.

I guess in my tunnel vision of the fact that North and South America are the only real ranching destinations I forget that probably some of the best grazinglands would be in Africa, I dont know about the forage quality or anything like that but everytime I see footage from Africa there is usually alot of grass. Those rangelands have probably never been overgrazed like ours here in the continental US also. Wow I bet during calving season preadator control is a huge issue, probably a little more of a threat than a few mangy coyotes.
