Continuing on our Antelopes of Africa theme, this - and the next few posts - are about one of the most elegant of the antelopes, the humble Oryx. An animal that is essentially a unicorn… except their horns grew a different direction. Oryx, otherwise known as their Afrikaans name “Gemsbok” – which are sexually monomorphic, meaning both males and females possess horns – are absolute survivors when it comes to side-stepping predation and tolerating the harshest of environments.

In May-June 2020, our nature photography photo theme is: "The Antelopes of Africa, and the Critters that Eat Them".

I'll start off this theme with a little insight into the world of antelopes, 29 of which are visible on RAW Worldwide Safaris.

In October 2017, I was on the home straight after 5 months of self-drive Safari across Africa. Crossing through Botswana to see a final few Parks before returning home to Australia, I had my most intense photographic day yet - in the unassuming but sometimes chaotic Nxai Pans National Park. From hearing the cheetah kill nearby to following the dove’s plummeting arc, the kamikaze goshawk and the 50 elephant bulls that came by that waterhole, it was an experience of a lifetime.

When I first saw this little fellow in Zambia in October 2017, my heart melted a little. But he was a fighter, and my concern quickly changed to pride when I saw what he was capable of...

After spending 2 of the last 3 years travelling across the wilder areas of Africa (the remaining time spent doing the same in Australia & North America), I've developed a handful of awesome expedition-style trips to showcase the real magic of Africa...

"It was like a Nat Geo documentary was unfolding right before our eyes... except, there was no TV between us and the action." This story recounts moments from our Great Migration experience in Africa last year, and the range of safaris we now offer around the world.
