Stories from the

Wild

to the

World.

Lisa Roberti - wildlife photographer - with a mug in Sabi Sands South Africa

For as long as I can remember, I've been enchanted by animals. I have spent the last 7 years traveling to wildlife-rich areas of the world with my camera in hand and heart on my sleeve. I've learned about different species and about the lives of individual animals.

I've cried tears of joy, tears of laughter, and tears of sorrow as I watched the lives and deaths of the animals play out in front of me.

Every day I learn more about the plight of animals as well as about their victories. I am on a mission to share what I learn with others so that together we can preserve the wild world for generations to come.

Current Travels

map of the world with pins in Alaska, Brazil, and Southern Africa.   The words Alaska Cruise, Pantanal Brazil, Zimbabwe Namibia and July-August-September 2022

And now the travel begins - heavy!    

First - an Alaskan cruise.   I usually go on a cruise 1x per year with my mom and sister - but due to covid, we missed a few years and so this year we got to do 2!   This is the second cruise for the year and I'm super excited.   I have some wildlife excursions chosen.   I usually do not bring my cameras when I travel with my mom - but this year, I am!   Whales and bears - here I come.  The internet is usually pretty crappy on the ship, so not sure if I'll be posting any images while gone...but you never know when one will pop onto my social media.

My original trip for August was postponed due to Covid - so I joined a trip to my biggest bucket list destination- Mana Pools, Zimbabwe!   I've been wanting to go to Mana Pools for YEARS and my dream is finally coming true.  The very special part of this location is that we get to be on foot!  Yes, in Africa on foot with the elephants and wild dogs and antelope species and maybe...who knows a leopard or some lions.   I'm so very excited -- and no worries, we will be with a trained guide the entire time to make sure we don't become lunch.

In Zimbabwe, I'll also be visiting Hwange National Park.  This park is known for elephants and also has many other species.  It consists of grasslands and mopane woods and hopefully we'll see nice packs of wild dogs while here.   

Then, we end up in Victoria Falls for a day and then crossing the border of Botswana and into the top of Namibia and on the Chobe River.   I'll be on a house boat for a few days to hopefully get some up close images of elephants in the river and then a few days stay in a lodge next to the river.   I can imagine the eles, hippos, and crocodiles already...I can't wait to sleep to the calling of the wildlife.  This is the only part of Namibia I will be visiting - I do hope to get back there one day to explore the rest of the country.

In September, I'm off to the Pantanal in Brazil.    The object of this trip is more cats - the Jaguar.   There will be many other species to see - but that is the focus.   This will be my first trip to Brazil but it will be very isolated to the Pantanal region.    I am so looking forward to all parts of this trip (especially the Jaguars) - the birds and whatever else Mother Nature chooses to let us see.

I can't wait to share my travels with you!   Be sure to follow me on Instagram and Facebook and Youtube for images, stories, and videos -- and don't forget my blog!   I may even post a few short blogs from the field.

One of the 2 year old (approx) cubs I saw quite often having a grooming session after a swim. 

Jaguars love the water.  It’s incredible to see them swimming and living near the water. 

The trip to the Pantanal was stunning.  Jaguars are now my second favorite cat species (after tigers), but please don’t tell the lions, leopards, and cheetahs. 🥹 

Huge amounts of gratitude to @wildeyesa,  @andrewbecksa, @casarin.ricardo , @southquestsafaris, and Alan our boat driver.  They all did such an amazing job putting this trip together, getting us where we needed to be, helping with ideas and settings, and just for providing an experience that blew away all expectations!!

A beautiful jaguar in Porto Jofre Brazil. We watched what we believe was mom leaving the cubs on their own. 

There were 2 cubs about 2 year old and mom. The cubs were following mom and mom snarled at them and was walking away.

The cubs called for her several times. Towards the end of the evening, this cub took solace on one of their favorite dead trees.

Long lives "little" cubbies may you make a successful transition to adulthood and an independent life❤️❤️

Toco Toucan

at Chapada dos guimaraes National Park in Mato Grosso Brazil

Taken on a day tour with @wildeyesa before the Jaguar tour which starts today (so excited)

He almost doesn't look real - and he flew like a torpedo. So cool to watch

During the heat, elephants and other animals head to the water sources in Hwange National Park.  Some of these elephants have had long journeys and many are not used to cars or people. 

It is such a privilege to watch these magnificent animals go about their lives while on a safari with @andrewbecksa and @wildeyesa

A fur seal@puppy (a fur seal is actually a sea lion and not a seal) patiently waiting for mama to come and feed him.

Taken on my recent trip to the Galápagos Islands with a bit of an artist edit.

A playful humpback whale in Sitka, Alaska.  We spent about 30 minutes watching him as he played with a fishing boat and then did back strokes and tail slaps.  So much fun to watch!!!

Imagine it's hot and humid, you are in the amazon on a canoe with no one around except your fellow canoe mates.   You've seen huge spiders and eyes of reptiles staring at you out of the water...and then you hear this.

this video shows some of the amazon's vegetation but the point of the video is the sounds of the howls.   These sounds actually come from the Howler Monkey and can be heard up to a mile away.

All I can say is I'm very glad I wasn't alone in that canoe.

It was quite eerie but at the same time, it almost felt like a ride at DisneyWorld.    The greens were perfectly green, the water still, the flowers beautiful, the spiders big (yes, I know, I keep talking about the scary spiders).

Sound up for this one....
