News from Steve Shames

New Website!

Welcome to the online galleries of Steve Shames. I hope you enjoy this new website! We recently got back from a 12 day trip to the Serengeti in Africa, so I will be posting pictures from that trip in my New Photos Gallery. It was a great wildlife viewing 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.

Lauri and Steve in Kenya, 2018




***October 2, 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.


***October 13, 2021 -- Three day road trip to the high Sierras and eastern California around the Mono Lake area for fall colors!


***January 2022 -- Fly to Albuquerque for a three day trip to, and around White Sands National Park.



***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.


***September 2022 -- Off to Africa again, and back to our favorite spot -- The Serengeti!
