And increasing global awareness of the plight of our natural world from human activity can only benefit all of us in the future.

iFotoTravel Is Born

iFotoTravel has become a Top Photographer & Contributor (Level 6) with a Passport of nearly 300 cities and a current readership of 165,000 from more than 2000 published reviews.
Over 70 articles illustrated by our personal photography have been published on internet travel sites such as Travel2Next.com
Wildlife Adventures And Voluntourism
Our global travel and experiences of the natural wonders of the world have focussed on wildlife adventures. Highlighting a need for wildlife conservation combines well with our long time passions for wildlife and nature photography. We hope to advance a shared awareness for the preservation of our world around us.
Particularly enjoying being volunteers at Moholoholo Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre, we have worked with all manner of African wildlife. We also spent time at Kevin Richardson’s Wildlife Lion Sanctuary in South Africa, working with Kevin’s lions, hyenas, and black leopards.
Spurred on by those awesome experiences, we later volunteered with rescued orangutans and sun bears in Indonesian Borneo, at Samboja Lestari in East Kalimantan.
