About

Hello! I'm Thea.

My love for wildlife photography and dramatic scenery drew me to Africa for the first time in 2013 and I have been back several times since. It was such a magical experience to be so close to so many creatures in their natural habitat. From watching hyena cubs playing with their siblings to interrupting a leopard hunting impala, my safari experience did not disappoint and I continue to return to Africa at every opportunity. Safari truly is a photographer's paradise and the people are incredibly friendly and kind.

In addition, I am a frequent traveller to Asia. I adore the incredible food and rich culture that can be found all over the continent. I have travelled at varying levels, from taking multiple overnight trains in India to staying at some of the top hotels. Both offer very different experiences yet through my years of travel I have fallen in love with the culture and the people. My annual leave is never spent in the UK and I can often be found exploring new and exciting countries.

Thea's best travel experience

My most memorable experience took place in the Naboisho Conservancy in the Masai Mara. I love big cats and was so pleased to finally see a cheetah up close. The experience got even more exciting when we realised that the cheetah was in fact hunting and we watching as it prepared to hunt an impala. All at once it ran (with us quickly in tow) and caught an impala right in front of us!

After sitting at a reasonably close distance to the fresh kill, we could hear the roar of the nearby animals and soon we saw the hyenas start to circle. A further chase pursued and the hyenas fought off the cheetah for the kill. Finally, when they were done the vultures descended as we returned to camp for breakfast. It was something out of an Attenborough documentary and an incredible experience.
