Mana Pools is a photographer’s paradise! It is one of a few parks that allows you to get out of your vehicle, thus allowing for upclose encounters and lower camera angles. The light also varies dramatically throughout the day and in different areas of the park.
Nick is well respected in the industry for his wealth of knowledge on wildlife. He is a qualified Zimbabwean Professional Guide, one of the most prestigious game-guiding qualifications in Africa. Nick was appointed as the head guide to help the BBC Earth crew for the duration of their filming in Mana Pools for Dynasties’ Painted Wolf episode which took 2 years.
Nick and Desiree also founded Bushlife Conservancy, which is a registered charity that is dedicated to the protection and conservation of wildlife and habitats in Africa, primarily in the Zambezi River Valley of Zimbabwe and Zambia.
