The Face(s) of East Africa; a photo essay of wildlife faces
There are so many sides to East Africa; it is a land of such contrasting places and faces. When you hear someone breathlessly utter ‘Africa’… who or what springs to mind? What face do you see?
I’ve been in East Africa for three months now and I’m still wondering;
Who is East Africa?
Recently I went on safari (such a tourist, I know!) through four of the countries that comprise East Africa: Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania and Rwanda and I fell in love. The wildlife and landscapes were incredible. Vast savannas. Stocky rhinocerous. Lush jungle. And everywhere – faces!
Looking back through my photos (which are really just a collection of one gorgeous critter after another) made me want to share with you the faces I found. So here they are, in no particular order – my top 10 faces of East Africa.
Who did I forget?
Did I miss a favourite face? Do you have any photos of African Faces that you would like to share? Then drop me a line! I’d love to hear from you.
Ps… You all know my weakness is the cute, cuddly, spikey, shiny and slimey! 😛 I’ll get to the people side of things later!
The Footprint Scale
Photography Safari: 2/5 footprints
Heading on safari in Africa is a great eco-friendly and sustainable activity (as long as the company is reputable!). Shoot animals with a lens and not a gun! While on the road, be mindful of camps, waste, water, etc and your trip will be guilt free!
