A JV Big Cat Photographic Safari

Suzanne Baden from Germany

16/08/08

Susanne Baden from Germany, has just completed the first, of we hope many, JV Big Cat Photographic Safaris.

Here are some of Susanne's pictures which she shares with you. 

Susanne spent 6 days at Londolozi in her own private vehicle, with James Kydd as her guide.

After a game drive in the morning of her last day, she transferred via Federal Air to Oliver Tambo International and then via SA Link to Bloemfontein.
She was at Tiger Canyons for dinner.

During her time at Londolozi, she took about 3 800  photos:

She captured 4 of the Mapogo male lion coalition and the Sparta Pride with 3 females and 9 cups. Susanne photographed no less than 7 leopard during her stay at Londolozi. The wild dog den was active and Susanne took pictures of the wild dogs hunting and regurgitating meat to the cups. One night James and Susanne watched more than 20 hyenas devour a wildebeest.

At Tiger Canyons with JV, Susanne was lucky enough to photograph Shadow and Seatao swimming and playing in the river. This was her first introduction to these magnificent water cats. Susanne got her first introduction to Savannah, who in true lion style, was coursing the wildebeest for Tiger Boy and Shy Boy, who were waiting in ambush. 

The next morning four tigers and Savannah were on a wildebeest kill. The icy morning provided steam from the carcass and from the tigers mouths, making for some unique shots. 

Susanne witnessed first hand the athletic ability of tigers when she photographed Julie 30 feet up in a tree. 

On her last day, after a rugged walk through the Paaiskloof Canyon, JV, Sunette and Susanne had breakfast overlooking the magnificent canyon. 

Susanne revealed that on top of the 3800  photos at Londolozi, she had shot another 4000  photos at Tiger Canyons. 

Susanne used Canon EOS 1D Mark III and EOS 30D with the following EF 100-400 1:4.5-5.6 L IS; EF 24-70 1:2.8 L USM lenses.
