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

My goal for 2024 was to cut back on traveling and work on my health / fitness and my business - specifically my image catalog to get it organized and smaller (by deleting a bunch of images).   I wanted to write more stories and be more consistent with newsletters and finally release my African Safari Planner.

Unfortunately, I've had a slight detour.   Diagnosed with breast cancer, a large part of the first quarter was spent doing research.  I have not made much progress on my images or newsletter or the planner.

I have a great cancer team supporting me and we are working hard to get me on my safaris that I have planned while not compromising care or increasing the risk of cancer returning.   At this time, I'm still not sure if I'll make my first wildlife trips of the year.

Surgery is mid-April.   My ability to travel will be based on how well I recover from surgery and the pathology reports.

I have plans to travel to S. Africa with a return to Sabi Sabi and Mala Mala.   This will be my second visit to both these amazing locations.    Then, I'm off to Zambia and the lower Zambezi.    I'm excited to see this part of the world - a first for me.    I did visit Zambia last year for the first time and it was my 10th African country.

During this time, I've also been focused on the issue of the super tuskers from Amboseli, Kenya being hunted in Tanzania.    I have a thorough blog post with all the current information about the hunt as well as a link to the petition to voice your support in stopping this hunt.   I am currently researching what happened 30 years ago that originally created the cease-fire of the elephants and to try and figure out why history is repeating.    You can read all that information here.

If I am able to travel this quarter, I will create an instagram broadcast channel to go into more details about my trip.   This will include more behind the scenes than my social media pages.

Good news from the surgeon.  Clear margins.  So no additional surgery is necessary.  Huge relief as I was terrified of having a second surgery. 

Current steps.  Recover from surgery.  Listen to my body and rest when required. 

Working for long periods is painful to the incision so I’m giving myself grace and starting working slowly 

Next steps.  Meet with the surgeon in a little over a week to hopefully get clearance to start working out.  Continuing my research into treatment options. 

Meeting with an integrative cancer specialist in a few weeks. 

Not sure I’ll follow standard medical recommendations.  I really believe treatment options are a personal choice and I value the research and opinions of many medical professionals. 

And thank you to everyone that reached out with kind words of love and support.  I can’t even begin to convey how much it has impacted me and made my journey easier.  Thank you so much! 💕💕

An unexpected detour in my life.     

2024 was a year I planned to reduce my travel so I could work on my fitness and my business.    

My goal was to get my photo database culled and edited and write a lot of blogs (to tell the stories), be consistent with newsletters.    Update my online store with new images weekly and so much more.

Unfortunately, the last few months I've been getting tests and meeting with doctors and have a diagnosis of breast cancer.    With this diagnosis I have been spending time researching all my treatment options - from modern medical, alternative, and integrative.  

It's a very confusing time with a lot of information out there - much of it conflicting.

I am lucky in that we caught it fairly early and it is a slow-growing cancer.   Unlucky in that it is hormone receptor positive which for me is the most challenging part as I recently started hormone replacement therapy which really gave me back my quality of life (I spoke about this in my VLOGS last year).

It's a chapter in life that is unexpected, but I do look at it as a detour.    I am not stopping my mission and while I am fighting the cancer, I am also trying to raise awareness about the plight of the super-tusker elephants that are being hunted in Tanzania.

You can read my blog post here - which has a lot of the information:

A big detour in life - otherwise known as cancer

Lisa M Roberti April 8, 2024 6:13 PM

Just a few elephants walking down the road. #elephant #wildlife #safari

Lisa M Roberti February 17, 2024 6:12 PM

Somalisa Expedictions Camp in Hwange National Park, Zimbabwe has a really nice open area with tables for meals and to view the water hole.   

This area is surrounded by a fence made of logs.   The idea is to keep the wildlife (including elephants) out.

But...elephants are great architects and Tom (I named him this), decided to reassemble the fence and break in. 

Tom was just looking for fallen seed pods and didn't mean any harm.    

It's always so amazing to be so close to relaxed elephants -but please note, I did keep my distance and gave him space.

------
Did you know that the lodges / camps in Africa - some have electric fences to keep wildlife out and some are just open.    When you are planning your safari, you can pick accommodations based on your comfort level.   

If you have a safari in your future, be sure to sign up for the African Safari Planner notification list.    The planner will be released 1st Quarter 2024.   You can sign up to be the first notified here:

A very disturbing article released today by Africa Geographic tells of 2 super tuskers being killed in the last few months in Northern Tanzania (just south of Amboseli National Park).

The article (https://app.africageographic.com/story/trophy-hunted-two-super-tuskers-in-tanzania) gives all the details of the legal hunt lead by two different outfitters just a few months apart.

There are only 50-100 super tuskers left in the world.   The unnecessary loss of two of them is a massive blow to elephant conservation efforts.

While I truly believe all of wildlife is valuable - and let's not get into hunting for this one - super tuskers being so rare are even that much more important to elephant populations:
1.  They pass down their genes to other elephants (the length of tusks is passed down in genes)
2.  These older bulls are mentors to younger bulls - showing the younger bulls the ropes after they leave their family herds.

I'm so disheartened about this killings.   If you love wildlife or are a wildlife photographer and enjoy seeing wild animals in the wild, please go to the link and make a productive comment.

Perhaps if we all raise our voices, Tanzania will see that this type of hunting will not be tolerated and will make some changes.

How do you feel about the killings of 2 beautiful super tusker elephants?   Are you as enraged as I am?

Update:   A third super tusker was killed.   A 4th hunt is underway.     If you want to help, please sign the petition:

2023 year in review

Lisa M Roberti December 31, 2023 10:00 AM

In the Media


I was quoted by Travel and Leisure magazine.

The online article "The Best Binoculars for Safari of 2024" is a great article about the need for binoculars when you go on safari.  

Even with my long wildlife lenses, I love always having a pair with me to help look for animals and to also see behavior clearer.

Although I don't use any of the binoculars they listed, all the info in the article is great.     The binoculars I use are Zeiss 10 x 25 because they are super compact and lightweight which I need when carrying heavy camera gear.

You can read the article on their website here.


I was quoted in the Travel Africa magazine Edition 102 November 2023-January 2024 (alongside several other people).  Travel Africa magazine is a great resource for traveling to wildlife destinations all throughout Africa.    I love receiving it each quarter.    Many people have comments in the "Your Experiences" section which shows how much gorilla trekking means to people.    See Rwanda for my current content about Rwanda.  I'll be adding more in the next few months.   And if you are interested in gorilla trekking, feel free to contact me for tips and information.
