A safari in Africa is the adventure of a lifetime. Sitting for a few hours with a pride of lions or a coalition of cheetahs (yeah, that's their collective noun) is a humbling and grounding experience. It's also a great way to hone your photographic skills and come home with some stunning photos. Here are some of my favorite photos from our trips to Botswana, Zimbabwe, Kenya, Rwanda and Zambia along with the gear I used most, our favorite guides, and the camps we loved.
