Our photographer and source of these breath-taking images is Chad Cocking, a professional field guide and award-winning wildlife photographer, living and working in the Timbavati Private Game Reserve area adjoining the Kruger National Park in South Africa.


In his own words: "Over the past twelve years, I have really settled into life in the bush, and besides living out my childhood dream of being a game ranger, I have developed a passion for capturing the special moments of my daily life on camera. While I don’t think I will ever fully appreciate how fortunate I am to be out in the bush all the time, I do realise that I live the life many can only dream of. I take great pleasure in sharing my magical moments and stories with anyone who cares to listen, and have connected with people from all over the world through my photography."
