Greg du Toit is passionate about Africa and knows the continent’s wildlife hotspots intimately, so who better to ask about the number one location for wildlife photography in Africa? Where is your favourite location for wildlife photography?
I think it’s Mashatu in Northern Tuli, Botswana. I like it there because it’s like no other place in Africa in terms of landscape and habitat. It’s one of those ecosystems that’s just full of surprises. You never know what you’re going to see. There’s incredible diversity, ranging from big cats through to small predators, plus beautiful birds and unique landscapes. Do you get there often?
I run a predator workshop there. I do four or five a year, and we use the hides from where I shot my winning images for Wildlife Photographer of the Year – they’re specially built for photographers.
