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.
