Small-time hunting in Kafue National Park


This episode occurred when I was staying in Nanzhila Plains Safari Camp in southern Kafue, Zambia. I was driving along early one morning when suddenly I saw a serval jumping in the grass, close to my car. It stopped and watched me for a few seconds before the imperative of food took over and it continued hunting. This was a lucky moment for me because I could take a few good photographs.
In fact, this was not the only serval I saw during my stay at Nanzhila Plains. I was fortunate enough to see three different servals. The pictures in my mind, and my photographs, serve to remind me of what an amazing reserve Kafue National Park is.

As pensioners living in a retirement village with limited space, my wife and I share the same study/art workshop. This serves as my dry lab where my editing is done. A while ago I was doing some editing on sport images and noticed the busy bird life in the bottlebrush just outside my garden on the pavement. I thought this might be an opportunity for me, despite my limited equipment, to take some ‘wild’ garden bird photos.
