Every month, Shenton Safaris selects 3 pictures among those taken by our guests during their visit at Kaingo and Mwamba.


The theme for November was “Monkey Business”. However we haven’t received many pictures from our guests portraying vervet monkeys or baboons, so few actually that we decided to postpone the theme to February, in hope we can attract more entries. We had a couple of winners in the past that were pictures of primates, but we couldn’t really use those again.

In the meantime, here are 3 simple pictures by Izzy and Patrick, which may trigger suggest that your pictures are probably just as good! So send them our way!

Our next selections will be on the following themes: “reptiles” for December, “black & white” for January and we’ll try  “monkey business” again for February.

Make sure to sort through your photographs and to email them to us at info@kaingo.com. Make sure your best shots are emailed to us so we can add them to the pool.
