Australia - Mt Borradaile
Most people visit Davidson's Safari Camp for the indigenous rock art, and no wonder. It's one of the most intimate and impressive ways to experience tens of thousands of years of indigenous culture in Australia. But the natural history is equally impressive at Mount Borradaile. Rare grasshoppers, immense diversity of flowers and magnificent wetlands combine to provide a unique enviornment for spotting wildlife. Where the stone country meets the wetlands a unique experience awaits.

Davidson's Safari Camp is special because of Max Davidson. His unique relationship with the indigenous people of Arnhem has made this tourism destination possible. Once there were just tents and toilets, but in recent years the camp has undergone major upgrades with comfortable cabins, great cuisine and even a pool for the comfort of guests. Max himself is still on the scene, but ably assisted by a team of young and impressive guides such as Clare and Roger.

Photography for Travellers
Ewen's guiding principles are simple...
"Go slow. Get closer. Look for the light."
"Photography is about showing other people how to see, to share the beauty of life. It's not a job, it's a lifestyle. We only get one lifetime, one chance to add some light into the world. Photography competitions are mostly silly. Cats are excellent."
