Dean Button snapped this great panoramic photo from the main deck while on honeymoon at Maliba.
There’s no time like the present to hone your photographic skills to enable you to capture glorious travel photography fit for a gallery wall – or at least pride-of-place in your living room!
But the variation of subject matter and lighting conditions you’ll be greeted with while on holiday can be daunting to capture successfully, especially if you’re juggling quality time with your family against quality time with your digital camera!
1. Travel photography by its very nature is inspirational and exciting – but it’s easy to get carried away when you prepare what to take with you. Whilst it would be fantastic to take all of your kit abroad practicalities such as baggage allowance and insurance costs could mean you are better of hiring equipment on arrival or opting for lesser items. Ideally if you choose to take your own kit you’ll need to travel light: one body (unless you have the room for a spare), a wad of memory cards, a lightweight mini tripod or even the super flexible Gorillapod, portable storage unit, a pocket-size compact, a flash unit, a selection of lenses and a durable camera bag that distributes the weight evenly over your shoulders and protects against heat, cold, sand and moisture.
He was very excited and said he was sitting on his computer for 30 minutes watching the votes!
Christel van Heerden on snapped this quirky photo while on one their road trips around Lesotho while on honeymoon at the end of September. It was quite appropriate for the occasion it would seem.
We’re happy to be able to report that Christel and her new husband had a “magical time in the Mountain Kingdom…a very special Honeymoon indeed!” Needless to say they stayed in far more “comfortable” lodgings than below.
And we look forward to seeing them again (hopefully in a years time ).
A big thank you to Christel for sending us this image. Christel has won herself a Maliba Mountain Lodge peak cap which we will be sending to her shortly and entry into the grand prize (a weekend for 2 compliments of Maliba Mountain Lodge).

We recently returned from our trip to Africa during which we visited Maliba Lodge (January 22-24). We saw the notice about your photo competition and I thought I would submit this one.
Steven (from Maliba Lodge) (wearing one of the iSangoma’s head-dresses) accompanied us on a visit to the village and the local Medicine woman. Some of her ‘lotions & potions’ are visible in the background.
