African Wildlife Photographs

We travel to Africa a few times a year to run some projects in the Rift Valley area and always have our cameras at hand to capture those awesome moments when the wildlife of Africa are just calling out for their photograph to be taken.

Although many of the animals roam free, the best place to see them is in the numerous National Parks that can be found across Africa with most being located in Kenya, Gabon and Tanzania.

With an estimated 1,100 species of animal and 2,600 species of birds let alone reptiles, Africa is the second largest continent on the planet with a variety of climates making it a suitable home for this plethora of wildlife. Even the stark barren wilderness of the Sahara Desert provides a habitat for snakes, rodents, lizards, scorpions, antelopes and camels amongst others.

Here are some free African wildlife photographs for you to download and use in your own projects. Enjoy!
