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.

world map showing Zimbabwe - Botswana - Kenya - and Gabon

The final quarter in 2022 has me traveling long trips with very little time at home and very little internet when gone.

I am flying straight from Brazil to Zimbabwe.   I am visiting Mana Pools National Park, Hwange National Park, and Chobe National Park (in Botswana).   I am really hoping for lions on foot this time in Mana...stay tuned.

I go home for 7 days and then I am off to Kenya!  My favorite place in the world except for home.   While in Kenya, I'll be visiting Ol Pejeta Conservancy, Amboseli, and the Mara including a few of the conservancies.  I am excited to get back to Kenya after a year.

Then after being hone for only a week, I visit a new country - Gabon.   This trip has me a bit anxious as Gabon is more wild then the other places I've visited.   Definitely pushing the boundaries of my comfort zone on this one - but I am super excited to see what this country has to offer.

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.   

Note:  I usually do NOT share the same content to Instagram and Facebook, but while traveling with slow internet and limited time, I am sharing the same content.   Once I'm home, it will be back to original content on both platforms.

One of the topi lionesses struts her stuff as she walks down one of the “roads” in the Maasai Mara, Kenya

We stopped at the top of a ravine to watch some elephants on the other side. 

This hippo was not happy with our presence even though (or maybe because) we were so much higher than him. 

We didn’t stay long and left him to grumble at anything else. 

Hippos appear very sweet (but smelly) when in water or grazing.  This display is a reminder of just how dangerous they can be.

When the lioness gets too close for your lens and you don’t have time to switch cameras. 

Beautiful morning with a pride of lions and the Rongai males in Naboisho Conservancy today.

Such an incredible experience from the Asilia photo vehicle.

3.5 week old lion cubs. 

The story is a bit sad.  We first encountered mama 4 days ago and she was moving her very tiny cubs.  Both at the same time. 

She’d carry one a short distance and then go back for the second but the first would follow.  It took a long time to move them. 

She had to move them because the Buffalo came and killed one of her cubs.  She only had 2 left. 

We have seen her every day since then and the cubs are growing soooo fast.  They are now leaving the den and playing in the open with mom nearby. 

They are so very precious.

The leopard known as Kazuri.  She was up in the tree when we found her.  She slept for awhile and then came down and disappeared into the thickets. 

Such a beauty!

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....
