Nick Brandt is a British photographer known as the author of the book On This Earth. There he portrayed the wildlife of east Africa with a very personal style. He uses the black and white to show the animales in a different, more artistic way. This is a sample of his excellent work:

The photographer shows a very particular style with these images, first because he uses a vintage color filter, making them look more like photos from the early 20th century. Second because how the animals pose, I can imagine him waiting for hours until getting the right image.

And we must highlight that all the photos have been taken in natural parks of Kenya and Tanzania. Those are probably the most touristic places in Africa but also the best places to spot wildlife. Well in any case, I think those are some of the best Africa wildlife photos we can found. I hope you liked them!
