ENDED: February - March
Capture the essence and spirit of Africa. We want to see the vibrant colours of Africa, the far-reaching plains of the Serengeti or the twinkle of Cape Town city at night, we want to see your vision, through your lens. Capture prowling leopards, predators and prey sharing precious water or humble dung beetles trudging through the sand. Pearly beaches to the beads adorning Maasai warriors, what do you see as Africa?

Roaring Lions & Big Cats
One of the most sought after viewings on a game drive, Africa’s big cats. Capture the acceleration of a cheetah across the plains, the strength of a leopard dragging its prey up a tree, or a pride of lions taking down a straggling Wildebeest. We want to see you get up close and personal with our big cats. We can’t wait to see your unique representations of these majestic creatures.
