In the wet months this area supports an extraordinary proliferation of life. Cheetah mothers teach their cubs to hunt, migratory birds such as Eurasian and Abdim’s Storks flock the plains and lake shores, while Golden Jackals and Bat-eared Foxes raise their pups in the dens. Lion prides finally have a chance of filling their bellies, after enduring some very lean times in the dry spell, with very little if any food around. It is easy to get lost when you are tracking a Cheetah deep into the immense plains but it is a wonderful sensation to watch the dark clouds build up in the distance, with the rays of sun filtering through.
Federico Veronesi has photographed these areas extensively and will take you away from the masses into remote and stunning locations, real wildlife heavens where few people venture. Photography is particularly good here as off road driving is allowed, offering the possibility to position the vehicle as desired and to follow animals across the endless plains.
