A cheetah hiding in the shade.
During my time in @erindinamibia I was able to explore wild cheetahs by foot thanks to my awesome and highly experienced guide @francoisdplessis (usually you have to stay in a vehicle). It was a truly incredible experience to spend time with these animals on „their level“. ...
This is how the Milky Way looks like in the middle of Namibia.
Taking this picture 2 meters away from a huge crocodile and few hippos is probably one of the best memories of my life... a huge thanks to @mattbotterill 2212 for being our bodyguard during those stressful minutes... don’t try this without a armed and experienced guide with you.
❰ SAVE THE ELEPHANTS ❱ According to the World Wildlife Fund, there may have been as many as 3 million African elephants in the early 20th century. However, poaching has made their numbers decrease to around 470,000 today. #wearepangaea .
📷 // @pie_aerts // Although there's a ban on the international trade of ivory, thousands of African elephants are still being killed for their tusks which are then used in ornaments and jewellery, particularly in China. Even though there are many herds that have been protected, their population still expands beyond protected areas.

➽ Sadly, they are also suffering from habitat loss as farmers extend agriculture in their space, this also creates a conflict with us humans as Elephants damage their crops making farmers angry and sometimes killing them in response. If you want to help, find organisations whose work you value and get involved by contributing in any way you can to support their movements, whether this be raising awareness online, donating, signing petitions, not buying any items that have harmed animals in the process or even volunteering directly. Take action, small or big and make a difference in our world today.⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Thanks SO much to everyone who came out to The Odeon last night to help raise money for Africa’s lions! Such a great turn out and vibe! 🙌
But, THE REAL LION KING NEEDS YOUR HELP.
Since the original release of @disney ’s the @lionking 25 years ago, half of Africa’s lions have disappeared.
Just over a century ago, there were more than 200,000 wild lions living in Africa. Today there are only about 20,000.
Lions are extinct in 26 African countries and have vanished from over 95% of their historic range.
Find out how you can help save lions today by visiting the link in our bio 🦁 ...
