Benguerra Island, MozambiqueApril 10, 2018 4:45 pm
What is the best way to end a safari? I might answer the questions “with another safari” but many people would probably point to the beach and some well-deserved relaxation time. I can now also point to Benguerra Island in Mozambique after a recent visit. While Benguerra offers as much of relaxation as you can manage, for me the opportunity to explore the island and explore the waters around the island makes is compelling post safari destination. On the nature front, the island offers the chance to search for suni antelope and crocodiles on the island and for birders to keep their eyes peeled for a myriad of birds, including beautiful egrets and the aptly named paradise fly catchers.
Without doubt a real highlight is to take to the water, both on it or under it for everything the azure water have to offer.Without doubt, the rich waters of the Bazaruto Archipelago surrounding Benguerra are the real highlight. Dolphins, whales, and the rare Western Indian Ocean dugong all mammal highlights to complement the sea turtles, rays, sharks and numerous fish. It is easy to see why African Parks, champions of conserving Africa’s unique biospheres have taken management over this marine National Park. You can learn more about African Parks and their activities in Bazaruto and beyond at www.africanparks.org.
If this all sounds too active, there is always there is always the opportunity for deserted island style picnics and days spent rolling out of bed onto beautiful white sand beaches. I stayed with the fantastic AndBeyond at their AndBeyond Benguerra Island resort (www.andbeyond.com), with the always awesome and reliable Anderson Expeditions (www.andersonexpeditions.com) taking care of all the logistics from bush to beach. Another adventure where I did not want to leave!

My passion for photography emerged from a love of travel, a love of nature, and a desire to capture some of the incredible adventures, moments and sights I have been so fortunate to enjoy and experience.
I was raised by a Danish mother and an Australian father, growing up in Australia and Denmark, and I can thank my parents for instilling in me a curiosity to see the world. I was incredibly fortunate travel formed a big part of my childhood and, now living in the United Kingdom, continues to be a big part of my life for work and pleasure.
While the personal side to photography for me is about capturing memories and sharing images from around the world, I also recognise the power of photography. There is so much natural beauty in the world and hopefully, in some small way, my images can contribute to a greater awareness and appreciation of the world we all share.
I am passionate about conserving the world we live in and I believe in giving back to the environment. I am committed to donating 100% of the profits from the images I sell to various wildlife and environment related causes. Please contact me if you are interested to understand more about the organisations I personally support and why.
Thank you for visiting my website and I hope you enjoy my images.
