I discovered Africa for the first time in 1989 in Cameroon. The colours, the smells were so new, The revelation was immediate.
The follow year, in Kenya came my first contact with the african wilderness and my first photographs.
From north to south, east to west, each country has its own charm.
In 1994 I had my first experience with the Southern Africa in Botswana. Once again I was struck by some of the most unspoiled wilderness on the continent.
20 years later, I am still facinated by these wide open spaces, the abundance of wildlife the sometimes rugid travelling and the local cultures.
To better understand and to learn more about the environment, as well as to assure my own safety while travelling alone, I completed à field guide training course in South Africa, and I am now registred as a field guide level 1 in the FGASA (Field Guide Association of Southern Africa, http://www.fgasa.co.za/).
My latest trip to oberve the mountain gorillas in Rwanda was another emotional moment. The penetrating stare and the near human likeness of these fragile giants is deeply moving.. Without question, and for my greatest pleasure, Africa has never finished amazing me ...
