Time and Tide

From shooting to photographing wildlife

Norman Carr established Luangwa’s first safari camp in 1950. Back when the African safari was considered a hunting experience, Carr’s pioneering vision was to encourage the practice of photographing wildlife rather than shooting it. His remarkable foresight into sustainable conservation led to the first initiatives to include local people in the management of wildlife resources.

A legacy of conservation
