MKUZE – KWAZULU-NATAL
The 2013 Imara Lightwarriors expedition to the Mkuze River drew Teddy, camera in hand along with mentor Athol Moult, deep into the reality of tribal life around the Somkhanda Game Reserve and environs of northern Zululand.
They had set out to explore and capture the complex ecosystem surrounding the Mkuze River as it winds its way through world famous nature reserves and tribal community land, supporting a diverse array of people and wildlife.
Having experienced the African wilderness in delicate balance on the Okavango journey, Teddy was now witnessing first hand, the friction brought about by increased population, and unsustainable subsistence practices, in an environment.
