How a trip to Africa can change your life

If we could, we’d be in Africa all the time. However, sometimes we do actually have to show a face in the office, so we absolutely adore speaking to our friends and clients who have recently returned from their holidays in Africa. Last week we spoke to Sharon and Bill, just back from honeymoon on safari in Tanzania and making us incredibly envious about the nine leopards they spotted during their safari. Afterwards Panny and Alasdair made us even more wistful as we heard about their adventures in Sarara and Rutundu, two of Kenya’s least known (but wonderful) spots. However, what made us long for Africa more than anything, were the photos that Will Fortescue took on safari in Kenya.

The fact that Will ended up in the Masai Mara seems to have been more luck than anything else. Heading out on a gap year, he was fortunate enough to end up at Governor’s Camp– one of the very first safari camps in the Masai Mara– and with a plum location in the heart of the park. Armed with his sense of adventure and a camera, Will fell for the Mara and its big cats in a very big way.  His photos are full of life and remind us why we fell in love with safari in the first place. And while we like to think we were in there first, we’re now stumbling across Will’s photos in serious photography magazines.

Will’s successfully climbed Mount Kilimanjaro with us this week- we can’t wait to see the pictures! In the meantime, you can see more photos on Will’s website at: http://willfortescue.co.uk/
