Above and Beyond Africa
Photo Gallery


Welcome to my extensive photo gallery!

Hi, I'm Christine Eichin, Your Safari Expert. I have no photography background whatsoever. I took ALL of these pictures on the camera's automatic setting except for zooming in or out, then… point and shoot! I want you to see that YOU can take just as amazing pictures when you go on safari with Above and Beyond Africa / YourSafariExpert.com. Our guides have extensive knowledge, and will position the vehicle for the best possible lighting for taking pictures.

I do recommend, however, a camera with at least a 6 – 10x OPTICAL zoom (approx. 200 – 350 mm equivalent), particularly for photographing birds.


Cameras I used:

Until 2001:  Pentax IQZoom140 film camera with 140 mm zoom lens (slides scanned)

2001 - 2006:  Olympus C-2100UZ (2.1 mp / 10x optical zoom/38-380mm equivalent)

In 2007 I purchased an Olympus SP-550UZ (7.1 mp / 18x optical zoom/ 28-504mm equivalent) camera, which I used for my most recent safaris. I will have photos from these trips posted soon.
