Cheetah

"On one of the early cold mornings in Maasai Mara, a cheetah jumped on the bonnet of our truck to warm herself up as she scanned the area for 'breakfast'."

Lioness and cubs

"Two lioness and eight cubs came out to play in Amboseli and here is one of the moments that I managed to capture."

Ol Malo, Laikipia, Northern Kenya

"A swimming pool reflects the evening sky at Ol Malo, Laikipia, Northern Kenya."

Flamingos

"The beaches of Lake Nakuru with pink flamingos from the Baboon Lookout at Nakuru Game Reserve."

Leopard

"After an arduous hike down a hill and staking out at a hide, I was rewarded by this leopard making an appearance - as the light was fading for 'evening cocktails' - at the watering hole."

Wildebeest

"It was the migration season and the mongoose were trying to get across the hordes of wildebeest at the Maasai Mara."

Elephant walking

"An elephant walking across the Amboseli plains with Mount Kilimanjaro in the background."

Giraffes

"Giraffes strike a pose in Laikipia. I had trekked on a camel to get to this spot and there were easily 20 giraffes or more in this area."

Birds standing on a hippo

"Two birds stand on a hippo on Lake Naivasha at Hippo Point. The evening light somehow gave this black and white silhouette effect."
