Oltepesi Tented Safari Camp

A beautiful image of "Yellow" photographed by Trond Ølstad Naturbilder / Trond Ølstad while staying at Oltepesi Tented Safari Camp.Fikk litt hjelp av en dyktig fotograf og Lightroom ekspert. Han fant denne, og gjorde den i mine øyne fantastisk. Tusen takk til deg Bjørn. Ikke nok i dag å bare ta bilder, du må "fremkalle" de også. Selvfølgelig så kan man ikke dra for mye i spakkene, det er det ikke gjort her, men litt her og der, så ble det mye mer liv i bildet ... See MoreSee Less

WAITING FOR MUMMY...

This leopard cub was miaowing for his mummy... Sitting exposed on the ground and not in the tree behind as he should be, small leopard cubs like him are very vulnerable especially for hyenas. Therefore we took a few pictures and agreed with the other vehicles to leave him alone so we did not attract any attention. This is Pretty Girls's cub for those who are fortunate enough to have seen that very successful mother.

Thanks to John Siololo and Johnmark Kiss-may at Oltepesi Tented Safari Camp in Maasai Mara, Kenya.

Så søt den er 😊

Du verden for en sjarmør 🙂er dette tatt nå nylig? Er leopardungene så små nå? Kan ikke få kommet meg i vei fort nok 🤗

CHEETAHS!

There is no doubt that this coalition of five male cheetahs is among the hottest subjects in Maasai Mara nowadays. It is a rare sighting to see them hunting, and together they can bring down big prey like topis and wildebeests! Actually they are hunting together like lions, surrounding their prey. The cheetahs are photographed in March 2018 together with John Siololo and Johnmark Kiss-may at Oltepesi Tented Safari Camp, Maasai Mara, Kenya. Visit www.oltepesi.com for more info about this nature photographers' camp.

Another great Serval Cat image taken by our guest Trond Ølstad / Trond Ølstad Naturbilder. These cats are not rare animals, but yet a lot of people visiting Mara never get a chance to see it. But Trond Ølstad together with Oltepesi guide John Siololo spent almost a whole day following this magnificent cat.Her er den på jakt, tar små dyr, som gnagere, fugler og lignende. Dette er den katten med høyest rating når det gjelder jakt. Jakter oftest i høyt gress. Så den er litt vanskelig å fotografere pga av alle strående som ikke alltid kommer der du ønsker. Så det er noe strå i ansiktet her, men jeg liker at den har veldig fokus på det foran seg, som jeg syns den har. D3s 400 mm m/1,4 konv. f5,6 - 1/640 Iso 560 ... See MoreSee Less

DID YOU EVER SEE A LION YAWNING A RAINBOW?

Our guest and professional wildlife photographer Tom Dyring who stayed at Oltepesi Tented Safari Camp in November 2017, took this remarkable picture. And we guess the answer to the question is "no". Also this is a good example of successful cooperation between the photographer and our guides; John Siololo and Johnmark Kiss-may, positioning the vehicle in exact right place so this low-angle picture could be created.
