The pride come alive when the sun begins to set. The mood shifts. Now is the time for the predators to do what they do best

When you have acquired a taste for the dust,
and the scent of the first rains, 
You’re hooked on life in Africa,
And you’ll not be right again

On #internationalwomensday I want to celebrate one very special lady who stole my heart back in 2014
.
Since then I have watched her grow, face the challenges of life in the wild head on and come out the other side to establish her own territory and thrive in the most unforgiving of environments, against all odds
.
Strong, powerful, beautiful and independent ♥️

It was late morning and we found the pride trying to cool off on the damp sand. One young male noticed the shade our vehicle was casting and came to take full advantage

Hi there
.
I’m Matt, founder and head guide at @armstrong_safaris where we offer bespoke, guided photographic safaris throughout the continent of Africa and beyond
.
All safaris with Armstrong Safaris are built around you with your needs and wishes at the forefront of the planning process. My in-depth knowledge of the environment, photography and the safari industry ensure that you receive the best possible service. Everything is taken care of from the moment you step off the plane to the moment you step back on it to fly home. Offering you complete peace of mind, enabling you to enjoy your safari to the fullest
.
My career as a safari guide and lodge manager has taken me to some of the most wild and remote places in the world. It was whilst living and working in these far flung-corners of the planet that my passion for photography grew and I quickly discovered that sharing my expertise with others is what I love to do. Now, I want to share my passion for wildlife and photography with YOU
.
A deep love of nature and the great expanse of the wilderness drew me to Africa at a young age (three months of age, so I am told) and has captivated me ever since
.
My time in Africa has seen me work as a guide at camps and lodges in some of the continent’s most remote and wild places, Katavi National Park in South West Tanzania and Zambia’s South Luangwa to name but a few
. 
Exposure to the brilliance of wildlife on a daily basis inspired a love and passion for photography, enabling me to capture special moments in nature, with the hope of inspiring others to do the same, with a desire of encouraging people to protect and preserve the wilderness and its inhabitants for future generations to come
.
If you have any questions about myself or are interested in joining me on safari then please get in touch
.
Leave a comment below, DM or email matt@armstrongsafaris.com and I will get back to you

Poise. Power. Strength & Beauty
.
After watching the gorgeous female leopard hunt for almost an hour, we were finally rewarded for our patience when she brought some a female Puku right in front of us
.
The strength she displayed in moving her kill so effortlessly across the open ground to the cover of a nearby Bush was beautiful to watch
.
This sighting took place in #Zambia #Southluangwa National park whilst staying @shentonsafaris Kaingo Camp. A place I can’t wait to return to later this year

Wildlife photography can be challenging as you really have no control over your subject. That just makes moments likes these all the more sweeter

The infamous “Garlic” of #Zambia #SouthLuangwa National Park. This image was taken almost a year ago to the date. We found Garlic and his brother Ginger resting by the roadside
.
Garlic decided he was going to use the road to escape the long grass. What did we do? We waited. .

Shooting with Backlighting is something I really enjoy whilst out on safari during night drives. Gives you a great opportunity to get creative and really gets you to think about your camera and Improve your technical knowledge

A one eyed warrior. The strength and resilience of wildlife never ceases to amaze and humble me
.
This girl looked completely down and out. One eye, a serious injury to her back leg meant that she couldn’t keep up with the pride. And to top it all off she was out in the open in the middle of a downpour, to week to seek shelter
.
When we left her, we feared the worst. 3 days after this image was taken we were with the rest of the pride, miles away from where this photo was taken. We could hear faint calling in the distance, which got closer and closer, to our amazement, this lady appeared and greeted the rest of the pride and settled down with them
.
A true survivor in every sense

Who has experienced Africa in the rains?
.
The vast majority of safaris will take place during the dry season. Yes, you will see far more of the “Big Stuff” between the months of June-November
.
However, the rainy season offers a completely different experience. The habitat chances completely and there are new and wonderful things to see that aren’t always there in peak season
.
Another big plus, far less people. It feels like you have the whole place to yourself
.
If you are looking for something a little different for your next safari adventure, I strongly recommend you give the rainy season a try. You will be amazed

Who has experienced Africa in the rains?
.
The vast majority of safaris will take place during the dry season. Yes, you will see far more of the “Big Stuff” between the months of June-November
.
However, the rainy season offers a completely different experience. The habitat chances completely and there are new and wonderful things to see that aren’t always there in peak season
.
Another big plus, far less people. It feels like you have the whole place to yourself
.
If you are looking for something a little different for your next safari adventure, I strongly recommend you give the rainy season a try. You will be amazed

A very special sighting in The South Luangwa
.
This is the much sort after Pel’s Fishing Owl. This beautiful bird is on the top of every keen birders wish list and in my experience, The South Luangwa is one of the best places to see these birds
.
Just look at those talons, used as the name suggests to catch fish

Getting creative with slow shutter speeds when an unexpected opportunity presents itself is always great fun

For those of you that have had he privilege of being guided by Patrick, you know how lucky you are, what guide he is
.
I have yet to come across anyone better, doubt I ever will. I am fortunate enough to have been taught all I know by this man and I am even luckier to call him a friend
.
Every game drive with @patricknjobvu is special and I can wait to join him and @shentonsafaris again next year
.
Here he is explaining the effect elephants have on the environment to @marisol_guizar .

#tbt to Mana Pools last year and photographing wild dogs on foot
.
This was the first time my friend and guest Diane had every been on foot in over 20 years of going on safari. She said that she had never known that it was an option. This to me, really highlighted the value of travelling with a private guide as I suggested that we do so and in doing so, opened up and whole new world of experiences for my guest
.
I can’t wait to head back this iconic destination, twice next year

Not an image for the feint hearted, but this is nature
.
Towards the end of October, impala are heavily pregnant and ready to drop their young. Generally this means predators get two for one if they manage to take down a female impala

Fallen Mopane trees make for a great playground for young Lion Cubs 😍
.
We followed these cubs and their mothers as they moved further in land from the river. It was wonderful to watch as the cubs took every opportunity to explore and play
