This is my interview with experienced Biosphere Expedition veteran Bob Hussey. Bob has been on six Biosphere Expedition expeditions.

And, finally, a little elephant collage, shot mostly from the veranda at our camp in the Vwaza Wildlife Reserve.

Before you venture into the African bush, be sure to read our packing list for Africa.

For a great article on how to photograph animals on an African safari, check out this guest post by our friend Susan Portnoy of The Insatiable Traveler. Susan is, for my money, one of the best wildlife photographers out there.

And, never undertake a trip like this without taking out travel insurance.

A visa is necessary for Americans to travel to Malawi. We use iVisa whenever we need a visa for any country. Great service, and a small price to pay for them to navigate the visa process for you.
