I STARTED CLIMBING THIS MONSTER AT 3:30 A.M. IN TOTAL DARKNESS. THE UNMAINTAINED TRAIL WAS A LOOSE BALSALT RUBBLE NIGHTMARE. I WAS WHACKED GOOD BY THE TIME I SUMMITED - JUST IN TIME TO SNAP THIS SHOT. THAT SUNRISE? IT'S STENCILED INTO MY POOR BRAIN.. FOREVER.

          PROFESSIONAL PHOTOGRAPHER, ERIC W. THOMSON

         ******************************************

MAY, 2018 / SAPHOTOSAFARI focuses on South Africa - and the world - through the lens of a keen observer, resident SA documentary photographer, Eric W. Thomson. The world's EXOTIC LOCALES, and its diverse people are chronicled, drawing on 100,000 digital images and 350-plus "photo essays". African national park safaris, Ecuadorian Amazon Expeditions, Botswana's Okavango Delta "mokoro" (canoe) camping trips, Istanbul, Turkey, Buenos Aires, Argentina, Los Angeles, global politics, , world-wide cityscapes, poverty , women as a new cultural force, Lesotho mountain village treks, South Africa,Tibet, Burma, Namibia, Egypt, Zambia, Zanzibar  - are photographically "on the menu" at SAPHOTOSAFARI...  

This unusual site is picture-perfect for INDEPENDENT ADVENTURE TRAVELERS, "ARMCHAIR TRAVELLERS", viewers naturally curious about Africa and the world or those who imagine exotic travel destinations - and are eager to enjoy South Africa / world-wide travel photos. SOUTH AFRICA NOTE: The website profiles South Africa in a progressive way as it embraces democracy and leaves its Apartheid past behind; a work in progress to be sure, but fascinating to behold and photograph.

 Don't miss photo insights into SA's remarkable people: "FACES OF SOUTH AFRICA". New photo essays and Eric's opinionated "LETTER FROM SOUTH AFRICA" change every few days... Enjoy and thank you!
