News from Steve Shames

New Website!

Welcome to the online galleries of Steve Shames. I hope you enjoy this new website!  We just visited the springtime blooming orchards in California's central valley! Will be posting those pictures soon. I live in the Sacramento metro area in California with the love of my life and travel partner, Lauri. Below are the trips we have planned for 2022 and beyond.

Lauri and Steve in Kenya, 2018

***May 2022 -- Fly to Denver, then spend six days driving around the grasslands of Nebraska, the Black Hills of South Dakota and Badlands National Park.



***June 2022 -- Another trip to Africa! This time to Botswana and Zimbabwe. Once again we booked with Dancing Zebra Safari Company, the best custom safari company out there! We land in Johannesburg, then fly to Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe, then proceed to Chobe, Savuti, and Moremi parks, and then to the Makgadikgadi Pans.


***September 2022 -- Off to Africa again, and back to our favorite spot -- The Serengeti! To the central area, and to the northern area for the Mara River crossings.


***November 11, 2022 -- Three day road trip to Death Valley and the Ancient Bristlecone Pine Forest -- that is, if seasonal snow has not closed the road.



***February 20, 2023 -- We go to the Patagonia region of South America! On a small group tour with Globus, to the scenic mountain and glacier regions.
