18 Favourite New Wildlife Photos From 2018

The wildlife highlight this year was definitely the time we spent in Namibia, especially in spots like Etosha National Park and Walvis Bay. However, we also got a few shots closer to home and even a few literally in our own backyard. Here is a sample of a few of our favourites that we took in 2018.
