Iconic Africa Traveller Giorgio De Luca has just returned home after a wonderful time in the Okavango and Victoria Falls. Giorgio was kind enough to chat to us about his trip and share some of his awesome photographs with us. Here’s what he had to say:
What did you think of the Okavango as a safari destination?
It remains my best destination in Africa for safari though I do have the impression that the numbers of animals as drastically reduced in the last 20 years.
What was your favourite thing about Victoria Falls?
We were unlucky with the weather and the falls with too much water (as expected for the season). The walking tour along the falls is my favourite experience, even better that the heli flight, because you feel the impressive power of the water! I’d also like to mention the good dinner and friendly ambiance created by the crew on board of the Sunset Cruise.
What was your most unforgettable moment?
Probably the photo shooting of the leopard. I looked like a staged scene for National Geographic but it was real i.e. the leopard, a magnificent sun-set, the leopard jumping on the branch perfectly exposed…
If you could describe your trip in one word what would it be?
What was the best sighting of your trip?
See above plus the sunset on the pond with the hippos in the background.
Where in Africa would you like to go next?
Never done Ethiopia and Rwanda (Gorillas)
Thank you Giorgio for sharing your incredible pictures and stories – we hope to see you back on African soil again soon!
