“It’s the safari capital of the world.

“It is the capital city of Kenya but it is unique because it is home to a national park – the Nairobi National Park.

“The close proximity of this park, which is practically in the city, made it possible for me to get this backdrop.

“For an image to be great it needs to have a good background, and this one fits in perfectly.

“It’s clear that humans can co-exist with wildlife if they want.”
