14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World

At the beginnning of August I´ve been staying at Lake Tanganjika in northeastern Zambia for a week, visiting the far off Nsumbu National Park right at the shore of the lake. It´s a forgotten park, heavily hit by poaching during the last decades. Craig Zytkow, owner of the last accommodation in that area, Ndole Bay Lodge, is the one person who is working to prevent the extinction of many species living in the park. Although the area is huge, there are only estimated 250 to 300 elephants left - not to speak of zebras, lions or antelope.
