Beautiful Nature Photography from Ol Pejeta Conservancy, Kenya

When you love your work should it really be called ‘work’?  Perhaps Nat Geo has got it right to call it ‘exploration’.  We were blessed to explore this most beautiful place and in the course of our ‘work’ my vulture trapping partner, Shiv Kapila took these amazing photographs in the Ol Pejeta Conservancy.
