Celebrating Africa's Wild Babies
They are clumsy, incredibly cute, and curious about everything. Their ears and feet are too big for their bodies and their large, inquisitive eyes seem to suck you right in. They have protective, doting parents that keep an eye on them 24/7 and will protect them no matter the cost. These are the incredibly adorable wild babies of Africa – guaranteed to put a smile on your face, whether it is while out on safari, or from the comfort of your home looking at photographs.
We are celebrating those delightful and captivating youngsters in this gallery, Celebrating Africa’s Wild Babies, which comprises of a selection of stunning photos, along with some interesting facts and thoughts from the photographers themselves. And they're not just any photos, they're some of the special photos submitted during our Photographer of the Year 2017 and 2018 competitions.
