Travel to South Africa’s eastern borders, to Kruger National Park and its adjacent private game reserves, and you’ll find a vast, diverse terrain of riverine forest, rolling grassland, and marula tree-dotted bush home to some of the world’s most inspiring animals. The regal Transvaal lion, the wary African leopard, the wise bush elephant—wildlife and photography lovers around the world fly to the continent just to catch a glimpse of these larger-than-life creatures in their dwindling natural habitat. If you ever wondered why a safari tops ultimate bucket lists, these captures of animals in their raw forms, without the distraction of color or context, might help show you.

All photos were taken in South Africa’s Sabi Sabi Private Game Reserve.
