Shot with a 400mm f4 The migration is probably the worst time to go on safari, so i went toward the end of the season, only had one other vehicle around when we came across this scene, so we had a clear view and pick of angles/locations.

Brian, neat shots. I haven't managed to be there during the migration. Were there any zebras there. My understanding is that there are often some there.

Predators too, I can guess - lots of predators?

I am off to Sabi Sands in August - big five and lots of leopards.

The summer has too many tourists, families, etc for my liking. I go in October and sometimes February, its cheaper and better for photography - you have around 1/10 of the vehicles/tourists and the grass is low and dry.

That makes sense - thanks if I ever go I will bear that in mind
(Safari, A good Amazon holiday (lots of rubbish ones) and Churchill in Canada are my 3 dream holidays. I guess Churchill is the most expensive from the UK and probably from the US as well.
