Next year, I'm slowing down on my travel (cutting from over 160 days / year to under 100) to give me time to focus on writing and culling / editing images.    So these destination links will be filling up quickly starting in 2024.   Be sure to join the newsletter to get notified when there is additional content.

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

I was able to go to South Africa and Zambia in June and my heart is full.

Although with all the tests and medical stuff going on, I have not made the progress I wanted on my images, blogs, or the safari planner, I will continue to work on them as I can.

The third quarter has me going to The Kingdom of Tonga to swim with humpback whales.   This is a trip that I have dreamt about for over 30 years.    I am so excited that I'm finally going to be able to do this.    The trip was supposed to happen in 2020 and got postponed due to covid.  It is a snorkeling trip as the whales do not like the bubbles from scuba equipment.   I am not the best swimmer and although I will have an underwater housing with me and a GoPro - this trip is more about the experience for me than trying to get "THE PICTURE".    I will of course, share on social when I can.

Directly after the trip to Tonga, I will start my cancer treatments.    The treatments are 5 days a week and will be about 6 hours a day and will be approximately 10 weeks long.  (I am doing alternative / functional treatments as opposed to standardized medical care).   I am hoping that I will feel well enough to continue to work on my images and blog posts as well as my fitness.

June in the lower zambezi national park is normally green with grass about mid-calf high.

Due to the droughts hitting Zimbabwe and Zambia right now, the park looks like it normally looks at the end of dry season.  Dusty, empty of food, lower rivers, dried up tributaries, etc

I still found it remarkable and it is now one of my favorite safari locations.  Still wild.

I never get tired of watching elephants, and we spent. Lot of time with different bulls and breeding herds during the 8 days I was here. 

With very few grasses, the animals are dependent on the trees and shrubs.  the browse line is getting quite high and the eles are having to stretch and balance.

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

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

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:

2 Super Tuskers Killed in Tanzania

2023 year in review

Lisa M Roberti December 31, 2023 10:00 AM

In the Media

I was quoted in East-West News Service for an article about traveling through Africa in different ways.

โ€œAfrica offers so many adventures โ€“ the typical land safari where the animals in most places completely ignore the vehicle, to unbelievable canoe or boat safaris on the beautiful rivers and lakes. You can even take an adventure in a hot air balloon or helicopter so you can see the beauty from any perspective. Walking safaris add an entirely different dimension to the experience.โ€


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.

I am honored to have contributed the cover photo for the Mara Predator Conservation Programme Annual Report.  

The non-profit operates in the Masai Mara, Kenya and is a part of the Kenya Wildlife Trust.   Their mission is 

"a world-class conservation programme, providing evidence-based, practical management recommendations, solutions and ideas."
