News from Steve Shames

New Website!

Welcome to the online galleries of Steve Shames. I hope you enjoy this new website! We just got back from a short road trip through Nevada, so I will be posting pictures from that trip soon. It was a great trip! 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 2021 and beyond.

***April 2021 -- We fly to Dallas and embark on an eight day road trip through Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Tennessee, Arkansas and Oklahoma. The highlight of the trip will be three days on the Natchez Trace Parkway.



***May 20 2021 -- We head off to Africa again! This time to the central Serengeti where the great migration tends to be at this time of year.  We are going with Dancing Zebra Safari Company again. I would highly recommend them to anybody thinking of an African safari.



***October 2021-- Off to Maui for a week! Should be a lot of sunset photo ops among others. The road to Hana, which is one of the windiest roads in the world, is one item on the agenda.



***June 2022 (postponed due to Covid restrictions)-- 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.
