Since my early teens I've been fascinated by African big game.  Later, when I was a student I worked at a wild animal park at weekends and for me it was a natural step to take photographs of the animals I saw there.  Safaris became the perfect combination for my two passions and I've been visiting the game parks of Kenya since the early 1990s.

It's easy to be spoiled for choice but there are two national parks that are my favourites.  One of these is The Samburu in the north; arid and sparse it has its own unique species like the gerenuk, the oryx and the beautifully marked reticulated giraffe.  But it's the Masai Mara in the south west of Kenya that I think is difficult to beat in the whole of Africa for the sheer volume and diversity of its game.

I'll never tire of being miles from anywhere and seeing a caring cheetah mother playing with her cubs.  Or watching herds of wildebeests and zebras frantically crossing the Mara River on their annual migration.  Or being just yards from a pride of lions lying in the shade to avoid the heat of the African sun - so close you can almost touch them.  Scenes like these stay with you for ever.

And my favourite animals?  It has to be the big cats - leopards, lions and cheetahs.  There’s something magical about their power, their majesty and their grace.  My pulse still quickens when I see them.  But then there's the mighty elephant, the elegant giraffe .....

They are all part of the magic that is Africa.
