Swarms of up to 80 Million Locusts Decimating Crops In East Africa, Threatening Food Security For 13 Million People

Shattering stereotypes in Africa

Africa is a massive continent that is complex, dynamic, and ever-changing, and yet so often tourists to any part of it sum it up with a few very similar photos. Outsiders tend to have a knee-jerk reaction to try and seek out and reproduce what they grew up seeing in National Geographic, but even a publication like that only has seen a slice of what this place has, is, and offers. And just this week, Nat Geo took a look at their colonial biases through the last century, reminding us that we, as...

On Photo Safari: The Serengeti and Lake Natron

When I booked my initial trip to Tanzania and lined up my 9 day safari through Tarangire, Lake Natron, the Serengeti and Ngornogoro Crater I justified splurging a bit, the length of the trip, and the cost, by telling myself it was the trip of a decade. The mental math was clear – I’d have an incredible 9 days of safari, but would return having sated my need for a follow up for the foreseeable future. As it turns out, I could not have been more wrong.  As I write this post, I’m already dreaming o...

On the tobacco road - David Levene in Kenya

In East Africa, the tobacco industry, including British American Tobacco, has been putting pressure on local governments over some of the regulations attempting to curb smoking. BAT says it is not against all regulation but from “time to time” needs to challenge it. BAT Kenya is currently taking a legal case to the country’s supreme court over some regulations. Every year more than 6,000 Kenyans are killed by tobacco-linked diseases, part of what the World Health Organization calls the“biggest p...

The Big Cats of the Serengeti

The four days I spent in the Serengeti were full of incredible experiences. One of the things you always dream about is the opportunity to spend time with big cats. From shy Cheetahs to Lazy Lions or the ever elusive Leopard, there’s something captivating about the alpha predators of Africa. At the outset of my safari I hoped I’d spot, perhaps, one or two large male lions and a leopard or two. A cheetah or two if I was lucky and a pride of females with cubs. Little did I know what the Serengeti ...

I Shot My African Safari on a $200 70-300mm Lens and Loved the Results

As I prepared for my nine day Tanzanian safari I languished in tormented indecision over what gear I needed for the trip. I had opted to splurge on the safari; not only because I had opted for the 9 day safari over the 7 day, but because I had also opted to have the vehicle entirely to myself as opposed to doing a shared experience or budget safari. The logic was sound; Safaris’ aren’t cheap and it didn’t make sense for me to significantly reduce what i’d end up getting out of the experience ...

The experience of launching into the atmosphere, riding in a hot air balloon while enjoying the birds eye view of the world below is an experience like no other.
