This morning when I was heading out to work, I opened my Pokémon go and a cherrim spawned out. I finally was able to capture it and into my collection. It looks so happy 😀 #pokemongo #cherrim #sinnohpokemon #rareencounters
Mohave Shovel-Nosed snake (Chionactis o. occipitalis) From Mohave county. AZ a VERY rarely seen subspecies in the state of Arizona. Crazy enough, also found two DOR to go along with this living one last night!
Well well... I have been looking at the details of my next trip to Africa courtesy of Bushtracks Africa - it is quite nice not to do my own itinerary sometimes! - and here is where I will be in 10 days, coincidently on my actual birthday: on the Royal Livingstone Express! . . This is sure to be an exceptional experience. This luxury steam train departs from Livingstone through Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park and the Zambezi River Valley, where we will hopefully seewild giraffes, zebras and antelope. We'll be crossing the Victoria Falls Bridge while sipping curated South African wines and dine on fine flavours . We'll be watching the African sunset and marvel at the sight of Victoria falls, with a photo opportunity when we disembark for a short time. . . Have you ever been on this train? If not, is it on your bucket list now? . . 📸: https://www.visit-victoria-falls.com/activities/cultural/steam-train-dinner
I had the honor of meeting the incredible artist behind the giant Rubik's cube in Little Tokyo, @maloney.nicole , and she gifted me her new book, Rare. That's what you call #serendipity . I look forward to seeing more incredible work! #RareEncounters #MsParkerazzi #NicoleMaloney #Artist
South Africa has been such a popular destination this week! Did you know it could be a great foodie destination when on safari? A new chef, Jan Hendrik van der Westhuizen will be opening a restaurant on Tswalu, called KLEIN JAN and work along side Executive Chef Marnus Scholly, who said “I am looking forward to working with Chef Jan Hendrik in defining the Tswalu culinary vision. We are focussing on a specific area of produce, working closely with local farmers, and we understand the unique challenges of the Kalahari region. Our offerings will be tailored to guest needs and will deliver a world class experience.” It sounds delicious already! It is no wonder that top chefs are appointed in top reserves. Tswalu is certainly one very special malaria free game reserve with a maximum of 30 guests at any given time spread among 3 lodges. The one in the photo is Tarkuni, and absolute gem. . . 📸: www.tswalu.com

Happy days! Not only when I am in Africa (even with my bush hair 😁), like in this photo taken in Luambe National Park in Zambia, but also because all the hours put into working on safaris and other holidays during the day, late evenings, weekends and holidays have resulted in being the Top Sales Agent of the month in April 2019! . Truth is, when you love your job, it doesn't feel like work. I'm just very happy and grateful to all those of you who made this achievement possible! Thank you very much indeed 🤗. . Back to creating more exciting itineraries now! . . #happydays #happyme #thankyou #grateful #lovemyjob #bestjob #topsalesagent #africanspecialist #safaribookings #travelagent #rareencounters #livingthedream #safari #wildlife #wildlifelovers #uniqueexperience #bewowed #beinspired #travelinspiration #safariaddict #africaaddict #photooftheday #traveltoafrica #luambecamp #luambenationalpark #zambia #visitzambia

I've been looking at some really unique lodges in Africa and had a big crush on Loisaba Star Beds in the Laikipia Conservancy, Kenya. I think the photos speak for themselves, and it would be such a perfect choice for couples wanting to spend their honeymoon in Kenya, or celebrating another special occasion. Perched on a rocky kopje amidst Loisaba Conservancy’s verdant savannah, each of the four rustic platforms juts out over the tree-clad plains, all featuring a large thatched roof, open walls, a double handcrafted bed, and a spacious uncovered deck. The country-style décor with an authentic African flair makes it very warm and cosy. There is a little extra too: the bed comes with a hot water bottle to make you feel toasty as you doze. 😍 In addition to game drives, activities include lion tracking and horseback riding, and the incredible terrain providing the rare opportunity to spot elusive wild dogs. What do you think? . . 📸: loisaba.com
If sf garter were a person... he’s probably wearing skinny jeans, drinking his latte from avocado peel, likes pineapple pizza, vape, and IPA is his favorite beer. #Hippie #SanFrancisco #Hippieassmf #InSitu #thamnophissirtalistetrataenia #CitizenScience #RareEncounters #EndangeredScpecies #SanFranciscoGarterSnake #YouAintAboutThatPondLife #BayAreaWildlife #Herping #CaliforniaHerps #herpetology #Gartersnake #insituherps #CaliforniaWildlife
South Africa is always a great choice for those wanting to split their holidays with safari and other activities. When it comes to family with young children, it is a popular choice with many malaria free reserves. Kariega Game Reserve is one of them, a Big 5 private safari reserve located in South Africa's Eastern Cape. It contains five properties and the largest one is The Main Lodge, which was the first to open, in 1999. This is a friendly lodge with 24 log chalets, each with one double bedroom and one twin bedroom, both with an en-suite bathroom, best suited to families and groups. . Activities include game drives, guided bush walks, river cruises, fishing, and canoeing. You can also head out of the reserve to see plenty of local attractions! . Very happy to send a lovely family to this lodge in February next year! 😃 . . 📸: kariega.com

Back to the UK after a week break but have been working on some really nice itineraries, particularly in Kenya. Amboseli National Park is often offered as the first stop as it is only about 3 hours from Nairobi. And what a change of scene this is compared to the busy city! This is elephant lovers' paradise and photographing them with Mount Kilimanjaro in the background, a real iconic scene. . . Contact me to design your itinerary for a safari to Kenya and beyond. . . 📸: @gm_wildnfree
Today’s dose of #cuteness 💓🦀💓 I couldn’t believe it when I found this little, more like microscopic, Soft coral porcelain crab. It was about 4mm and almost impossible to tell what it was until I saw it under magnification in front of my camera. #wowunderwaterphotography #cutnessoverload #nature #diveeveryday #diving_photography #lookbeneaththesurface #natgeo #dowhatyoulovelovewhatyoudo #underwatermacro #macromode #softcoral #scubadivingworlds #instadive #diverlife #photography #canon #olympus #inon #nauticam #diving #underwaterart #oceanart #saveouroceans #wallart #rareencounters #porcelaincrab #thebestonetsy #zazzle @wowunderwaterphotography wowunderwaterphotography.com
